Global Tobacco Market Report 2023-2030: A Surge in Demand from Developing Nations Bodes Well for the Sector

Dublin, Aug. 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Tobacco Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Product (Smokeless Tobacco, Cigarettes, Cigars & Cigarillos, NGPs, Kretek), By Distribution Channel (Supermarket/Hypermarket, Online), By Region, And Segment Forecasts, 2023 - 2030" report has been added to's offering.

The global tobacco market is on a trajectory to achieve remarkable growth, with an anticipated size of USD 1049.9 billion by the year 2030, reflecting a steady Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 2.1%.

This expansion is being propelled by a series of factors that collectively underscore the resilient nature of the industry. A surge in demand from developing nations, complemented by the widespread adoption of Next-generation Products (NGPs), is decisively steering the market's upward momentum.

Moreover, major tobacco companies' strategic initiatives encompassing vigorous marketing campaigns and product discounts are fostering an environment conducive to industry growth. Notably, the consumption of tobacco through conventional cigarettes stands as the pivotal driving force behind this thriving market.

The global landscape is marked by the prevalence of over a billion smokers, with a significant majority, more than 80% residing in middle-income countries as per the World Health Organization's 2022 report. In the face of governmental efforts to curtail smoking rates through cessation policies, the market persists, driven by the inelastic demand for tobacco products. Additionally, the introduction of NGPs by industry leaders stands as another key catalyst poised to propel market expansion throughout the forecast period.

The industry, segmented on the basis of products, was dominated by cigarettes. However, NGP is projected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. Products, such as oral nicotine products, e-cigarettes and vape, are witnessing an increased proliferation, especially among youths and millennials. Furthermore, major tobacco companies are stepping up their strategies to incorporate the growing trend of NGPs.

For instance, in November 2022, Philip Morris International introduced a tobacco heating system known as BONDS by IQOS, which utilizes heat instead of combustion to release the flavors of tobacco. This innovative technology significantly reduces the emission of harmful chemicals, boasting a remarkable 95% reduction when compared to traditional cigarettes.

The product is now available in the Philippines and is specifically designed to cater to adult smokers, offering them a range of tobacco tastes to choose from. The supermarket/hypermarket segment accounted for the largest share in 2022 and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period to a high number of stores across the world, as well as the convenience they offer.
