GCC Cigarette Lighter Market to Reach US$ 253 Million by 2028, Propelled by the Rising Number of Smokers

June 09, 2023 | Retail

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled "GCC Cigarette Lighter Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2023-2028," finds that the GCC cigarette lighter market size reached US$ 176.6 Million in 2022. A cigarette lighter is a small device designed to ignite tobacco products, such as cigarettes, cigars, or pipes, by creating a controlled flame. It typically consists of a metal or plastic casing that houses a flint, a fuel source (usually butane gas), and a mechanism to generate a spark for ignition. When the user activates the lighter, the flint is struck against a rough surface, creating a spark. The spark then ignites the fuel, which produces a controlled flame. The user can direct the flame toward the end of the tobacco product to initiate the burning process. Cigarette lighters have evolved from traditional flint and wick designs to more modern and convenient variations, such as electronic lighters, that employ a heating element instead of an open flame. These newer models often feature safety mechanisms like child-resistant locks and automatic shutoff timers. Although primarily used for smoking-related purposes, cigarette lighters also serve as a convenient ignition source for other tasks like lighting candles, starting campfires, or igniting gas stoves.

GCC Cigarette Lighter Market Trends:

One of the primary factors driving the market is the increasing number of smokers in the GCC countries. Additionally, the GCC countries are known for their high disposable income levels due to oil revenues and economic diversification efforts. This factor enables individuals to afford tobacco products and accessories like cigarette lighters. Other than this, smoking has cultural and social significance in some GCC countries as it is considered a common social activity and a symbol of hospitality in certain communities, leading to sustained demand for cigarette lighters. Besides this, cigarette lighters offer convenience and portability, making them a preferred choice over other methods of ignition. They are easy to carry and provide a quick and efficient way to light tobacco products. In line with this, the GCC region attracts a large number of tourists and expatriates. Many tourists indulge in smoking during their visits, while expatriates often come from countries where smoking is more prevalent. This influx of individuals contributes to the demand for cigarette lighters. Furthermore, key players are developing portable cigarette lighters that are to carry and provide a quick and efficient way to light tobacco products. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 253 Million by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period (2023-2028).
