A cigarette lighter is a handheld device that is used to produce a flame or ignite cigarettes, cigars, and pipes. It consists of a metal or plastic container filled with a flammable fluid or pressurized liquid gas. Flint lighters are one of the oldest types of lighters, which can fit inside a pocket and use piezoelectric sparks to generate the flame. However, in the GCC countries, electronic lighters with a combustion button have gained prominence in recent years.
The GCC cigarette lighter market is primarily driven by the growing prevalence of smoking among individuals across the region. This can be attributed to the increasing disposable incomes and stressful lifestyles of consumers. Additionally, advancements in technology have made considerable changes in the design, convenience, prices, and product functionality, which, in turn, is providing a significant impact on the market growth. Moreover, constant innovations by the manufacturers, such as the introduction of a wide variety of cigarette lighters, are also facilitating the market.
