The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Cigarette Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022”, finds that the global cigarette market reached a sales value of US$ 816 Billion in 2016, growing at a CAGR of around 7% during 2009-2016. The word cigarette has its origin from the French word “cigarette” which means small cigar. A cigarette is a small cylinder of finely cut tobacco leaves rolled in thin paper for smoking. Most modern manufactured cigarettes are filtered and include reconstituted tobacco and other additives. They are consumed all over the world and come in a wide variety of types and flavours depending on the targeted consumers.
Highlights of the global cigarette market:
- With the growing awareness about the harmful effects of smoking cigarettes, the developed markets have witnessed a decline in the cigarette sales.
- Currently, Asia Pacific represents the largest cigarette market, with China as the largest consumer and producer.
- The market is expected to reach a value of US$ 1040 Billion by 2022, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.1%.
Over the years, the global cigarette market has witnessed significant changes in the consumption patterns. A decline in the adult smoking rates due to rising health consciousness among the consumers has led to a downfall in the demand for cigarettes in the developed regions such as North America and Western Europe. Additionally, strict government regulations, restrictions on marketing and promotions, and increased taxes on tobacco products are some other factors that have affected the market growth. On the other hand, cigarette consumption is growing in low- and middle-income countries. Moreover, premiumisation of products, rising number of both, male and female smokers, the addictive nature of the cigarettes, and strong distribution networks of the manufacturers are driving the market. Owing to the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 1040 Billion by 2022.
