Olfactometers Market By Technology (Dynamic Olfactometry, Hybrid Instrumentation, Electronic noses, Field Olfactometry, Others), by Application (Environmental Monitoring, Food and Beverages, Consumer Products, Others) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Industry Outlook

The olfactometers market is expected to project excellent growth at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.2% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. Odors are complex mixtures of big and small molecules that are present in very small quantities in the inhaled air. The human olfactory sensory system gets stimulated when it comes in contact with odor, and the stimuli reported are either pleasant or unpleasant perceptions. The assessment of odor is of immense importance, especially in the consumer products and food and beverage industries. It is also in high demand in refineries, civil and industrial wastewater treatment plants, and air quality monitoring.

Hybrid instrumentation is widely employed for its accuracy and precision during the quality control of aromatic molecules.

Hybrid instrumentation is currently dominating the technology segment of the olfactometer market. Olfactometers, in combination with gas chromatography, are widely employed in validating the aromatic samples obtained from natural sources. Odors are a mixture of big and small molecules, which are present in extremely small quantities in air and samples. Mass spectrometry is used in combination with olfactometers, especially in the food and beverage industry, to enhance its aroma and determine the natural essence of essential oils present in spices. Flame ionization detectors are frequently used in combination with olfactometers in analyzing the fragrance and synthetic molecules prepared from ester and ether bases present in consumer products used on a daily basis. Electronic noses are gathering tremendous attention on account of their technological advancement in developing electronic sensors for chemical detection and neural networks for pattern recognition of different odors. The electronic noses market is growing due to its excellent ergonomic design, increased sensitivity, and low price.

Increasing demand for perfumes and changing fashion trends are responsible for the dominance of consumer products.

Consumer products are currently dominating the applications segment of the olfactometer market. The consumer products market is driven by constantly changing fashion trends and burgeoning demand for perfumes. Currently, people are showing keen interest in fragrances and perfumes extracted from natural flowers, which is a very tedious and laborious task. Olfactometers are employed in analyzing the quality of scent obtained from natural sources. Environmental monitoring is becoming a sensational agenda throughout the globe on account of factors such as global warming, air pollution, and increasing pulmonary disorders due to the inhalation of airborne particulate matter. In cosmopolitan cities worldwide, the air quality index has degraded immensely and is not fit for inhalation. Olfactometers are used to analyze air samples and report the quality of those samples.

Flourishing food and beverage and consumer products industries drive the olfactometer market's growth in North America.

In the present scenario, North America is the largest regional segment pertaining to the olfactometer market. The key factors that contribute to the progressive nature of the olfactometer market in North America are the flourishing consumer products and food and beverage industries. Stringent sanctions have been stipulated for environmental monitoring on account of the looming threat posed by hazardous gas emissions in North America. Increasing demand from the perfumery industry and the burgeoning requirement for essential oils from the culinary segment propel the olfactometer market in Europe. Due to increasing industrialization and urbanization, which affect air quality, Asia Pacific is expected to grow rapidly during the forecast period. The availability of natural spices and the extraction of their essential oils, which enhance aroma, have a positive impact on the olfactometer market's growth in the Asia Pacific region.
