Global Odor Sensor Market Outlook - 2031

The global Odor Sensor Market size was valued at $1.5 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $19.4 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 29.4% from 2022 to 2031

An odor sensor is a device that detects and measures specific compounds in the air that create a smell, also known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These sensors can be used in various applications such as air quality monitoring, industrial process control, and food and beverage quality control.

Odor Sensor Market

There are several types of odor sensors, and they are:  

  • Metal Oxide Semiconductor (MOS) sensors: These sensors use a metal oxide film, such as tin oxide, to detect VOCs. They are susceptible and can detect a wide range of VOCs, but they can also be affected by humidity and temperature changes 

  • Electrochemical sensors: These sensors use a chemical reaction to detect VOCs. They are more selective than MOS sensors but can only detect a limited number of VOCs. 

  • Biological sensors: These sensors use living organisms, such as bacteria or yeast, to detect VOCs. They are highly selective and can detect a wide range of VOCs, but they require careful handling and maintenance. 

  • Photoionization Detector (PID): These sensors use UV light to ionize VOCs, which are then detected by an electronic circuit. They are highly sensitive and can detect a wide range of VOCs but are also affected by humidity and temperature changes. 

  • Infrared (IR) sensors: These sensors use infrared light to detect VOCs by measuring the absorption or reflection of infrared light by the VOCs. They are selective but also affected by humidity and temperature changes. 

  • SAW (Surface Acoustic Waves) sensors: These sensors use mechanical waves to detect VOCs by measuring the changes in the mechanical waves caused by the VOCs. They are selective and have high sensitivity but are also affected by humidity and temperature changes.

The odor sensor Industry is expected to witness notable growth during the forecast period, owing to a rise in awareness of air pollution and its negative healthcare effects, rising demand for smart home and building automation, and growing demand for food safety and quality control. Moreover, emerging applications in healthcare and medical diagnosis are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of the odor sensors market during the forecast period. On the contrary, the high cost of odor sensors and technological limitations of odor sensors in emerging economies are some of the restraints for odor sensors market growth during the forecast period.
