Smokeless Tobacco Market Analysis
The Smokeless Tobacco Market size is expected to grow from USD 94.35 billion in 2023 to USD 118.20 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 4.61% during the forecast period (2023-2028).
All COVID-19 studies to date have found that the worst affected cohort had at least one of the comorbid conditions associated with tobacco usage. Further, because of lax laws and enforcement, as well as a lack of infrastructure, "spitting" is most commonly done in open public places, putting the rest of the community at risk of a variety of communicable diseases, including COVID. This isn't just a problem in low- and middle-income countries. Hence, due to these factors, there was a reduction in the smokeless tobacco sale by about 4% during 2019-2020.
The smokeless tobacco market is anticipated to grow due to growing smoking bans and awareness associated with cigarette consumption. The product choices are expected to evolve based on ease of use, cost, and regulatory sights. Government authorities in various countries have increased the excise duty on cigarettes. Consumers are inclined to opt for alternatives such as smokeless tobacco products as they cannot afford to buy cigarettes on a regular basis.
Convenience in consuming tobacco chewing bags is one of the major reasons consumers prefer smokeless tobacco products over cigarettes.
