Digital Scent Technology Market Forecast to Reach $30.3 Million by 2026

(I-BusinessNews.Com, August 11, 2021 ) The Digital Scent Technology Market is forecast to reach $30.3 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 12.2% from 2021 to 2026. The Digital Scent Technology Market is estimated to witness a sustainable growth over the forecast period majorly because of the growing technology in developing sense of smell in online communication. Currently, only three of senses which are hearing, touching and sense of sight are implicated in online communication. Digital smell is one of the concepts of virtual reality. The digital scent is generally is a combination of hardware and software technology.

The role of hardware such as e-nose, Scent Synthesizer, Catridge and Scentograph is to produce the scent and that of software is to evaluate the scent equation and generate distinct signals for distinct smells. Lastly, the device produces that smell. With the digital scent technology, one can sense, transmit, reproduce and recapture smell, fragrance and flavors digitally on the internet. The smelling feature is carried out by USB powered devices which are supposed to emit appropriate smell at exact time. However, with the rapid adoption of Digital scent technology in the Defense and Healthcare sectors in different operations is expected to enhance its market growth in forecast period.

Digital Scent Technology Market Segment Analysis – By Hardware Devices

E-nose has dominated the Digital Scent Technology Market at 61.5% in 2020 as compared to the other hardware devices which are integrated in the Digital Scent Technology. An Electronic nose (E-nose) is an electronic sensing device intended to detect odors or flavors. Electronic sensing refers to the capability of reproducing human senses using sensor arrays and pattern recognition systems. E-nose performs under different stages and produce desired scent to user. The stages comprise of identification, comparison, quantification and other applications such as including data storage and retrieval. These devices are mainly used for industrial purposes. Scent Synthesizer has also been a major hardware devices in Digital Scent technology. California based Digiscents Inc. has developed the iSmell personal scent synthesizer. The iSmell is a peripheral device, about the size of a PC speaker that connects to a PC via a serial or USB port. It uses consumable cartridges which are used and replaced similar to the way ink jet printers use ink cartridges. The iSmell device reads a digital scent file, creates a smell from a palette of 128 chemicals stored in a cartridge which are then wafts into the air with a small fan, thus producing digital scent.
