Global Tobacco Packaging Market to Grow at 2.6% During 2024-2032, Impelled by Increasing Consumption of Tobacco Products

February 17, 2021 | Packaging

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Tobacco Packaging Market Report by Material Type (Paperboards, Paper Boxes, Plastic, Jute, Metal, and Others), Packaging Type (Primary Packaging, Secondary Packaging, Bulk Packaging), End Use (Smoking Tobacco, Smokeless Tobacco, Raw Tobacco), and Region 2024-2032," the global tobacco packaging market reached a value of US$ 18.1 Billion in 2023. Tobacco is a plant that belongs to the nightshade or Solanaceae plant family and is rich in nicotine content. The leaves of the plant are dried and fermented to be used in various tobacco products, such as cigars, cigarettes, snuff, bidis, and dissolvable tobacco. Efficient packaging solutions, such as foils, films, cartons, paper, boards, laminates, are utilized to protect the flavor and quality of these products from deterioration and aroma transmission during transportation and storage. They also ensure proper protection of the packaged products from bacterial contamination, moisture and other external impacts. These packaging solutions also function as an essential marketing tool as they provide consumers with important product information.

Global Tobacco Packaging Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the increasing number of smokers, which has facilitated the uptake of cigarettes across the globe. This can be attributed to the hectic schedules, long working hours and a considerable increase in workload among the working professionals, which, in turn, have resulted in stress and related mental health concerns among the majority. Since nicotine acts as an effective stimulant that assists individuals in combating daily stress, this is boosting tobacco consumption across the globe, thereby providing a thrust to the market growth. Moreover, the rising trend of product premiumization has led to the escalating demand for premium quality tobacco products. Supported by the inflating per capita income levels of the masses and easy product availability through online and offline retail channels, this is acting as another major growth-inducing factor. The market is further driven by the launch of various innovative and attractive packaging in the market. Packaging solutions with effect and spot finishing, ultraviolet (UV) colors and coatings, and blind and hot foil embossing and window films are gaining widespread prominence among the masses. This, coupled with the emergence of advanced printing technologies, including rotogravure, UV sheetfed offset and flexographic printing, is anticipated to create a positive outlook for the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2.6% during 2024-2032.
