As they are available in numerous shapes, sizes, colors and flavors, cigarettes are gaining traction among young adults of Europe.
A significant rise in the number of luxury cigarette brands that offer superior quality, high-end packaging and refined smoking experience represents one of the key factors impelling the cigarette market growth in Europe. This trend is further supported by the high disposable incomes of individuals in the region. Moreover, the nicotine present in cigarettes is considered to provide an immediate sense of relaxation, which is increasing the number of individuals who smoke to reduce stress and anxiety.
