Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology involves miniaturizing mechanical and electromechanical devices and systems. In the context of scent delivery, MEMS-based sensors offer several advantages. They are compact, allowing for the creation of smaller and more discreet scent delivery devices that can be integrated into various products and environments without occupying much space. Thus, these factors can lead to increased demand for digital scent technology in the coming years.

Additionally, In the entertainment sector, whether it’s movies, TV shows, or live performances, creating immersive experiences is key to attracting and retaining audiences. Digital scent technology adds a new dimension to these experiences by allowing viewers to engage visually, auditorily, and olfactorily. For example, viewers could experience the scent of a lush forest or the ocean’s salty breeze during a nature documentary, enhancing their sense of presence and realism. Therefore, these aspects will increase demand for digital scent technology in the upcoming years.

However, Digital scent technology encompasses a sophisticated interplay of hardware and software components, each requiring precise calibration and synchronization to deliver immersive olfactory experiences. The hardware typically includes scent generators or emitters, sensors for detecting and analyzing scents, and possibly even interfaces for user interaction. Thus, these factors can hamper the growth of the market.
