Key Takeaways

  • Contrary to developed markets, many emerging markets are witnessing stable or growing cigarette consumption.
  • In response to changing consumer preferences and regulatory pressures, tobacco companies are innovating in terms of product design and marketing strategies.
  • The smoking rates in the Asia Pacific region rank among the highest worldwide, particularly in Southeast Asia.

 

Cigarettes are considered as one of the most popular methods of smoking in various regions of the world. The word cigarette has its origin from the French word “cigarette” which means small cigar. Most modern manufactured cigarettes are filtered and include reconstituted tobacco and other additives. The rates of cigarette smoking vary widely and have changed considerably throughout history and while the rates of smoking have, over time, levelled off or declined in the developed nations, they continue to rise in the developing countries.

 

The cigarette market growth is influenced by a complex interplay of factors that drive its demand, production, and sales. Social norms and cultural practices can significantly impact cigarette consumption as in many cultures, smoking is ingrained as a social activity, contributing to sustained demand. The affordability of certain type of cigarettes also supports the overall demand; in times of economic prosperity, consumers may be more willing to spend on discretionary items like cigarettes. Moreover, changes in population demographics, such as age structure and income levels, influence cigarette consumption patterns. Young adults are a key demographic for this sector, and targeting this group has been a strategy to boost market growth.

Key Trends and Developments

Availability of different flavours of cigarettes; customisation and premiumisation; rise in disposable income; and digital sales and marketing are the major trends impacting the cigarette market development

 

Date Organisation Event
Jun 2023 The Dr. Kalam Foundation The Dr. Kalam Foundation, based in Coimbatore, unveiled 'Green Buds,' a project aimed at recycling cigarette butts to create items like pillows, toys, and mattresses from the cellulose acetate found in the filters.
Feb 2024 Japan Tobacco International Japan Tobacco International disclosed that it produced and distributed over 531 billion combustible cigarettes in the year 2023, maintaining its market growth.
Feb 2024 KT&G KT&G, the leading cigarette producer in South Korea, declared that its ultra-slim cigarette line, Esse, surpassed the milestone of 900 billion cigarettes in cumulative sales in the year 2023.

 

 

Trends Impact
Availability of different flavours of cigarette Flavorings in cigarettes especially those with fruity, sweet, or minty flavors, greatly appeal to younger individuals.
Customisation and premiumisation There is a trend towards premium, niche, and customised tobacco products catering to consumers seeking a unique or luxury smoking experience.
Rise in disposable income With higher disposable incomes, individuals have more financial leeway to spend on non-essential goods which can lead to increased consumption among existing smokers.
Digital sales and marketing With restrictions on traditional advertising, tobacco companies are increasingly turning to digital platforms to market their products, including cigarettes.

 

Cigarette Market Trends

One of the prominent trends is a rise in disposable income as higher disposable income can lower the financial barrier for potential new smokers, particularly young adults entering the workforce with newfound financial independence. The ability to afford cigarettes can make it easier for this demographic to adopt smoking habits, especially in societies where smoking is culturally or socially accepted. With higher disposable incomes, existing smokers might opt for more expensive brands, perceiving them as status symbols or for their perceived higher quality, thereby contributing to the cigarette market expansion.

Market Segmentation

“Cigarette Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032” offers a detailed analysis of the market based on the following segments:

 

Market Breakup Categories
Type Light, Medium, Others
Distribution Channel Tobacco Shops, Supermarket and Hypermarkets, Convenience Stores, Online Stores, Others
Region North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East and Africa

 

Growing appeal of light cigarettes among consumers to support the market growth

Light cigarettes hold a significant share in the market as they are marketed towards smokers who believe that a lower tar and nicotine cigarette might be a healthier or less harmful option. The desire of people to enjoy smoking with significantly lower risks contributes to the growth of the segment.

 

The ‘Others’ category, which typically includes regular or full-flavour cigarettes, also enjoy considerable popularity. This category appeals to smokers seeking the traditional smoking experience, with no reductions in tar or nicotine levels. Full-flavour cigarettes appeal to customers due to their full-bodied taste and the perception of a more satisfying smoking experience.

 

Tobacco shops account for a major cigarette market share owing to the availability of a broad range of cigarette brands and other smoking products

Tobacco shops specialise in the sale of tobacco products, including cigarettes. These outlets are preferred by consumers looking for a wide variety of brands, speciality tobacco products, or expert advice. Tobacco shops may also offer products like cigars, pipe tobacco, and smoking accessories, catering to a broad spectrum of tobacco consumers. The specialised nature of these stores, along with the expertise offered by staff, makes them a preferred destination for many smokers.

 

Supermarkets and hypermarkets are expected to witness robust growth in the market as they offer convenience by allowing consumers to purchase cigarettes along with their regular grocery shopping. The wide reach and accessibility of these stores make them a key distribution channel for cigarette sales. While they might not offer the same breadth of selection as dedicated tobacco shops, the convenience of being able to buy cigarettes during routine shopping trips makes supermarkets and hypermarkets a popular choice among consumers.
