A cigarette is a cylindrical roll of shredded or grounded tobacco wrapped in thin paper. It is ignited at one end to inhale the smoke through the other end. It contains several chemical additives, flavorings, and nicotine, which is a highly addictive central nervous system (CNS) stimulant that gives instant relaxation. Nowadays, cigarettes are gaining traction among adults across the globe as they are available in different shapes, sizes, colors, flavors, and intensities as per consumer preferences.

Global Cigarette Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the easy availability of different types of cigarettes, such as menthol and clove cigarettes, which have provided consumers with a wide array of options. In addition, the increasing number of smokers across the globe due to hectic and stressful lifestyles represents another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, key players are launching innovative product variants, such as flavor-changing capsules and cigarettes with filters, to expand their consumer base. They are also adopting attractive packaging and aggressive promotional strategies to gain a competitive edge in the market. This, coupled with the shifting consumer preferences toward premium products on account of increasing disposable incomes and rapid urbanization, is facilitating the market growth.
