Electronic Nose Market

Electronic Nose Market is Estimated to Witness High Growth Owing to Advancement in Sensors Technology

An electronic nose, also known as an e-nose, is a device which identifies and quantifies odor or aroma. It comprises an array of electronic chemical sensors with partial specificity and an appropriate pattern-recognition system, which is capable of recognizing simple or complex odors. The electronic nose helps in analyzing volatile organic compounds present in the sample by mimicking the human olfactory system. As compared to human nose, electronic noses work faster, are more sensitive and provide reproducible results.

The Global Electronic Nose Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 34.71 Bn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.6% over the forecast period 2024 to 2030.
