The larger share of North America in the global digital scent technology market is driven by the rising demand from end users such as the food & beverage, medical, marketing, and entertainment industries.

These end-user industries have a large presence within North America, which consequently drives the demand for digital scent technology. The US and Canada are leading the market in North America due to rising technological enhancements and the growing adoption of AI in these countries. Moreover, North America's mature and tech-savvy consumer base has quickly embraced sensory technology innovations.

The region's consumers are increasingly seeking personalized and immersive experiences, which has fueled the demand for digital scent technology in products ranging from smart home devices to virtual shopping experiences. This trend is expected to propel the market growth in the coming years.

Some of the major companies dominating the digital scent technology market are Alpha MOS SA (France), Electronic Sensor Technology (US), ScentSational Technologies (US), Scent Sciences Corporation (US), AIRSENSE Analytics GmbH (Germany), Smiths Detection (US), ams AG (Austria), and The eNose Company (Netherlands).

Market for e-nose to hold the largest share during the forecast period

An electrochemical nose, also called an e-nose or, electronic nose, or micro nose, is an artificial olfaction device integrated with an array of chemical gas sensors, a signal processing unit, a sampling system, and a system with a pattern classification algorithm used for the analysis of gases, vapours, or Odors.

Simply put, it is an array made up of chemical gas sensors housed in a device that uses pattern recognition to recognize, identify, and compare Odors. Electronic nose to detect Odor integrates various sensor technologies, such as piezoelectric sensor, polymer sensors, optical fiber sensor, and MOSFET sensors. Polymer sensors are gaining significant adoption in e-nose due to numerous advantages such as they offer high sensitivity and broad detection range. These sensors are ideal for portable devices and customized applications, their low lower consumption, ability to operate at room temperature, and customizable selectivity set them apart.

Market for quality control products holds for second-largest market share during the forecast period

Digital scent technology is gaining significant adoption for quality control products, as it helps in early spoilage detection and improve accuracy to boost demand. Traditional methods of poultry quality control, relying on visual inspection, physical manipulation, and chemical analysis, face challenges such as subjectivity, destructiveness, and limited scope.

In response, digital scent technology emerges as a promising alternative. This technology ensures objective and non - destructive analysis by utilizing sensors to detect volatile compounds emitted by poultry products. The benefits include improved accuracy and consistency, early spoilage detection, identification of specific contaminants, and rapid, non-destructive analysis.

Market for Medical segment is projected to hold for largest share during the forecast timeline

E-nose technology helps in the early detection of diseases by sensing the odor of human breath. Early detection of diseases can save a patient's life and reduce the cost of treatment. Moreover, e-nose is widely used for the detection of diseases such as TB and different types of cancers. In March 2023, New Zealand-based start-up Scentian Bio successfully developed a groundbreaking biological electronic nose capable of detecting human diseases, including tuberculosis and malaria.

The company's Chief Technology Officer utilized insect smell receptors to create a biosensor for identifying odors. E-noses, by analyzing volatile organic compounds in a patient's breath, offer a quick and patient-friendly approach to diagnosis, potentially contributing to the goal of detecting lung cancer at earlier stages when interventions are more effective.
