top 3 companies in the uae cigarette lighter market


Key players of the market include BIC, Zippo, ST Dupont, and, among others. The UAE cigarette lighter market is being driven by the growth of the Middle East and Africa cigarette lighter market, which reached a value of about USD 531 million in 2020.

A cigarette lighter is a flame producing device that is used to light cigarettes, cigars, and pipes. It consists of a metal or plastic container filled with a flammable fluid or pressurised liquid gas, a means of ignition, and some provision for conveniently extinguishing the flame. In the early 1800s, the German chemist Johann Wolfgang Dobereiner invented one of the first lighters, referred to as Dobereiner's lamp. Since then, the leading companies have made significant changes in their design and functionality to offer enhanced convenience to consumers.


With the rising smoking rates worldwide, along with inflating incomes of consumers, there has been an increase in the demand for cigarette lighters. As a result, manufacturers are coming up with a wide variety of cigarette lighters ranging from flint to automobile lighters to increase their profitability and provide consumers with varied options. They have also launched battery-powered electronic lighters that produce a flame at the push of a button. However, the leading companies have to obey specific regulations for making cigarette lighters. These regulations ensure that the final products available to the consumers are safe and will offer reliable performance. Looking forward, the publisher expects the global cigarette lighter market to exhibit stable growth during the next five years.
