Global Laboratory Olfactometers Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A laboratory olfactometer is a device used to measure the strength of smells. It consists of two glass tubes, one with a smell and one without. The user inhales from the tube with the smell and rates how strong it is on a scale from 1 to 10. Laboratory olfactometers are important for measuring the strength of smells in products so that they can be made more or less fragrant as needed.

Portable Olfactometers:

Olfactometers are instruments used to measure the strength of smell. They can be categorized as mechanical, semi-mechanical, and electronic olfactometers. The most commonly used type of olfactometer is a laboratory olfactometer which is an electronic device that measures the concentration of odor in air or water with the help of sensors and circuits.

Desktop Olfactometers:

Desktop olfactometers are instruments used to measure the concentration of odor in air. They are also known as field olfactometers, since they operate in a wide range of environmental conditions. Owing to their portability and accuracy, desktop olfactometers find applications in industries such as pharmaceuticals, food & beverages and chemical manufacturing among others.

Owing to their cost-effectiveness.

Application Insights:

The market is segmented based on application into research institutes, universities, corporate laboratory and others. The corporate laboratory segment dominated the global market in 2017. This can be attributed to factors such as increasing demand for olfactometry testing solutions from various industries including food & beverage and cosmetics among others. In addition, growing R&D activities pertaining to fragrance molecules that enhance cognitive functions is also expected to boost product demand in this segment over the forecast period.

The research institute application segment accounted for a significant share of the overall revenue in 2017 owing to rising government funding initiatives for scientific research at international level along with an increase in number of Phd candidates conducting olfactometry related studies at national level across countries like India, China Japan etc.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to maintain its position during the forecast period owing to high research activities and a large number of pharmaceutical companies located in this region. Moreover, increasing R&D expenditure by governments and private organizations coupled with technological advancements are some of the factors responsible for regional growth.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period owing to an increase in government funding for basic science research along with rising awareness about olfactory disorders among patients from developing economies such as India and China. In addition, growing interest among researchers towards using these instruments for drug discovery purposes is also expected drive regional demand during the forecast period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for olfactory products in the fragrance and flavor industry
  • Growing application of olfactometers in research and development activities
  • Rising number of conferences and symposiums related to olfaction that provide a platform for the manufacturers to showcase their latest products
  • Proliferation of online retail platforms that offer a wide range of olfactometers at competitive prices
  • Technological advancements in the field of olfaction that are resulting in innovative products
