The latest report by IMARC Group titled, “Tobacco Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022”, finds that the global tobacco market reached a volume of 7 Million Tons in 2016, growing at a CAGR of nearly 2% during 2009-2016. The market for tobacco is rising as a result of the introduction of different types of tobacco products such as cigarettes, kreteks, snuff, hookah, etc. Moreover, in order to tap in a wider consumer-base and increase their profits, the companies are focusing on increasing their investments in the area of research and development. This could help in manufacturing products with lower levels of toxicants by identifying the harmful toxic constituents of tobacco and understanding smoking behaviour. Apart from this, the absence of rigorous law and government regulations regarding the sale of these products also help in encouraging the growth of the market.
