The Global Electronic Nose Market was valued at US$ 17.7 Mn in 2017 and is expected to increase to US$ 42.7 Mn by 2025, registering a CAGR of 11.7% over the forecast period, according to Global Electronic Nose Market Report, by Technology (Metal Oxide Semi-Conductor Sensors, Quartz Crystal Microbalance, Conducting Polymer, and Others), by End-User (Environmental, Healthcare, and Others) and by Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East, and Africa).
An electronic nose (e-nose) is a device, which is used for sensing smells and detecting odor and fragrance of its surrounding. This devices consist of different types of electronic sensors which is used for comparison, identification, and quantification. Industries perform tests with the help of gas chromatographs and human experts to test flavors and scents of goods during production, as well as to measure their levels of freshness and damage. Major factor expected to restrain global electronic nose market is that the life of the sensors is limited. Since, the life of the sensors are limited after a certain period, it requires replacement and cost of the replacement is high. Moreover, these sensors are sensitive to humidity and temperature. Therefore, this factor is expected to hamper growth of the market. However, these sensors also detect the smell up to fixed ranges, which in turn not acceptable to the users. Therefore, this factor will hamper the growth of the market.

Key Trends and Analysis of the Global Electronic Nose Market:
- Among technology type, metal oxide semi-conductor sensors (MOS) segment accounted largest share in the global electronic nose market in 2016 and is expected to retain its dominance over the forecast period. The advantages of MOS technology is that it is cost-effective, easy to produce, and has compact size as compared to other sensors. Therefore, the rate of adoption is very high in verticals such as domestic, commercial, and industrial. Thus, these verticals are increasingly utilizing this sensor, in order to control reduce risk related to inhalation of toxic substance, which is harmful to human lungs. Therefore, these factors will help in propelling the growth of the electronic nose over the forecasted period.
- Among end users, environmental monitoring segment accounted largest share with 34.6% in the global electronic nose market in 2016 and is expected to retain its dominance over the forecast period. This is owing to increasing air pollutants, which leads to increasing health issues. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2016, 7 million people died due air pollution, globally. Thus, in order to control the effect of harmful pollutants in the environment, electronic nose is used. This factor help in propelling growth of the segment.
- Asia Pacific electronic nose market is projected to exhibit the highest CAGR over the forecast period. The market in Asia-Pacific accounted about 22.6% share in global electric nose market in 2016. Increasing adoption of advanced technology in the food and beverages industry, due to rising awareness about foodborne diseases, is expected to aid in high adoption of advanced equipment and techniques. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) analysis, in India, cases reported related to food borne disease were 100 million in 2011 and it is projected to reach up to 177 million in 2030. Hence, this tool helps in clearing food safety test, which in turn helps, in reducing risk of diseases caused by food contamination.
- Major players operating in the global electronic nose market include are Alpha MOS, Odotech, E-nose Pty, The E-nose Company, Electronic Sensor Technology, Scent Science Corporation, Airsense Analytics GmbH, Scentsational Technologies, and Scensive Technology.
