The Africa tobacco products market is expected to exhibit a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.72% during 2023-2028.
Tobacco is an agricultural product derived from the leaves of the Genus Nicotiana plant that contains an addictive drug named nicotine. Nicotine consists of a stimulant that triggers complex biochemical and neurotransmitter disruptions in the human body. Tobacco is widely available in different varieties, including oriental, flue-cured, burley, and fire-cured tobacco. These varieties are extensively used in cigarettes, hookah, snus, e-cigarettes, cigars, cigarillos, etc. In Africa, the increasing number of smokers based on hectic consumer lifestyles and early exposure to tobacco consumption is driving the market for tobacco products.
The rising consumer disposable income levels coupled with the wide availability of diverse product ranges, including cigarettes, snuff, shisha, etc., are augmenting the market for tobacco products in Africa. Apart from this, the growing consumer concerns towards the high prevalence of numerous respiratory disorders due to smoking tobacco have led to a gradual shift towards chewing-based product alternatives. Furthermore, the increasing popularity of smokeless tobacco that contain higher nicotine content in comparison to cigarettes is also propelling the market growth in Africa. Additionally, the rising penetration of numerous international players has led to the introduction of sophisticated products in the market. Several manufacturers are launching innovative flavors, such as saffron, apple, cinnamon, berry, etc., of tobacco products to attract a larger consumer base in the region. Besides this, the improving consumer living standards have led to the increasing per capita expenditures on premium and high-quality tobacco products, such as cigars and cigarillos.
