Heated tobacco products (HTPs) refer to nicotine delivery devices that allow users to inhale nicotine into their lungs. These devices are designed to heat and vaporize tobacco leaves instead of burning them, which releases flavor and nicotine. They are battery-powered devices comprised of an electronic heating element, tobacco capsule or stick, mouthpiece, an aerosol cooling element, charger, filter, and casing. HTPs are highly convenient, durable, aesthetically appealing, and user-friendly devices that are widely used for recreational smoking. As compared to traditional cigarettes, HTPs are safe, smoke-free, environment-friendly, help minimize waste generation, and reduce exposure to toxic chemicals produced from burning tobacco. HTP also improves flavor and reduces harmful chemicals, such as tar and carbon monoxide.
The rising consumer awareness regarding the adverse health impact of smoking cigarettes and chewing tobacco is one of the primary factors driving the market growth in the GCC region. HTPs are widely used as a safer and healthier alternative to traditional smoking, as they minimize exposure to harmful chemicals, reduce second-hand smoke, and lower the risk of cancers, heart diseases, and respiratory ailments. In addition to this, the implementation of stringent regulations by several regional governments to discourage cigarette smoking through graphic warnings on the packaging is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, several leading tobacco companies are setting up stores and introducing new HTPs due to the increasing trend of smoking among millennials, which, in turn, is providing an impetus to the market growth. Apart from this, the rising product demand as they are compact, portable, and easy to use owing to the changing lifestyle preferences and hectic schedules of the working population is propelling the market growth. Additionally, the recent development of innovative products that utilize new heating technology, such as induction and carbon-based heating, which reduces cost, improves nicotine release, minimize charging requirement, and provides authentic tobacco taste, is positively influencing the market growth. Along with this, the introduction of new and exotic flavor capsules for HTPs, such as menthol, lime, bubble gum, lemon ginger, cherry, mango, grape, strawberry, and orange, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Other factors, including rising expenditure capacities of consumers, easy product availability across e-commerce platforms, and aggressive promotional campaigns by manufacturers, are anticipated to drive the market growth.
