Smokeless Cigarettes Market Thrives with a 16.27% CAGR, Anticipates Exponential Rise to $93.94 Billion by 2030: Straits Research

The rising concern among people of varying ages over the potentially hazardous effects of tobacco-based cigarettes has led to a surge in demand for substantially less dangerous e-cigarettes and vape goods. This is anticipated to be a driving force behind the market expansion.

New York, United States, Nov. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Growing concerns among various age groups about the detrimental effects of tobacco-based cigarettes have increased the demand for substantially less toxic e-cigarettes and vape goods, which is anticipated to stimulate market growth. According to a 2019 BMJ Journal report, around 20.8 percent of American adolescents and 4.5 percent of American adults are current e-cigarette smokers.

According to Straits Research, “The global smokeless cigarettes market size was valued at USD 24.19 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 93.94 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 16.27% from 2022 to 2030.” For market participants in the smokeless cigarette industry, the demand for diversely flavoured products represents a lucrative opportunity. Similarly, technological developments in the primary smokeless cigarette industry are anticipated to contribute to the sector's growth. In addition, the vaping industry has established numerous organisations to oppose anti-vaping legislation and to regulate the sector for monitoring and promoting the development of the e-cigarette and vaping markets, which are anticipated to boost the smokeless cigarettes market's key trends and opportunities during the period 2022-2030. In recent years, regional government bans on the sale of vaping products and e-liquids in countries such as the United States and India have hindered the expansion of the smokeless cigarette sector.

Growth Opportunities

Post-pandemic marketing and digital sales techniques based on COVID-19 are anticipated to boost market growth. According to a Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids post, in May 2020, numerous e-cigarette manufacturers and vape shops marketed their goods by giving away protective masks and providing 19 percent off nicotine e-liquids with the code COVID-19. Consequently, the usage of vape devices is anticipated to expand during the projection period, particularly among recreational smokers and smokers attempting to quit.
