Global Digital Scent Technology Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Digital scent technology is the ability to transmit smells or scents electronically. This could be done through a device like a phone, computer, or even a car. The importance of this technology is that it can be used to improve quality of life for people who have difficulty smelling, such as those with allergies or asthma. It can also be used in marketing and advertising to create more immersive experiences for consumers.


E-nose is a device that enables the nose to be used as a sensor by translating scents into electrical signals. The technology has been around for many years but due to lack of efficient sensors and technical know-how was not widely adopted. However, with recent technological advancements it is now being used in various applications such as home security, automotive and healthcare among others.

The market size for E-nose devices was valued at USD 962.1 million in 2015.

Scent synthesizer:

Scent synthesizer is a device that simulates natural human scent. It works on the principle of olfactory simulation. Scent synthesizers are used in Digital Scent Technology (DST) market to create realistic scents for marketing and promotional activities. DST also known as Artificial Scents technology has wide applications in hospitality, retail, entertainment, gaming and other industries to enhance consumer experience by creating appropriate ambiance for various occasions or events.

Application Insights:

The entertainment application segment led the global digital scent technology market in 2017. The use of e-nose for film and television sets to detect the audience reaction and track their emotions is expected to drive demand over the forecast period. Furthermore, companies such as IsoFone are focusing on developing products that can identify different people based on their scent, which is further anticipated to propel industry growth over the coming years.

The education sector is also expected to witness significant growth owing to various initiatives taken by governments across countries worldwide in order for students and teachers alike, access positive mental states through aromatherapy. Moreover, research studies have proven that certain essential oils can improve student performance significantly when used during classroom activities or school assemblies as they create a relaxed environment resulting in better learning capabilities among students (Omega-3 fatty acids). These factors are anticipated fuel product demand from educational institutions globally over the coming years.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017 owing to the high adoption of technology across various application segments, such as healthcare, food and beverage, retail and entertainment. The region is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period due to increasing demand for technologically advanced products. Europe accounted for a significant share in terms of revenue owing to increased adoption by companies operating in this industry. For instance; In 2016; Ferrari S.p.A., an Italian luxury car manufacturer had introduced a new scent generator system called e-nose on all its cars produced since then known as e-gear system which generates unique electronic scent profiles for each model variant produced by it using digital scent technology developed by Italfa SPA (Bologna).

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be one of the fastest growing regions during the forecast period with China being one of its key contributors due to increasing investments from foreign players along with domestic ones like Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for digital scent technology in gaming and entertainment industry.
  • Growing demand from retail sector for customer experience management solutions.
  • Rising adoption of digital scent technology in marketing and advertising campaigns.
  • Increasing use of digital scent technology in research and development activities across various industries.
  • Proliferation of smart devices and internet-of-things (IoT) is expected to fuel the growth of the global digital scent technology market over the forecast period
