The India tobacco market is projected to exhibit a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.80% during 2023-2028. The rising cultural acceptance of tobacco consumption in India, the increasing number of tobacco users, and inflating consumer disposable incomes represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Tobacco is a plant from the Nicotiana genus, primarily Nicotiana tabacum and Nicotiana rustica, cultivated for its leaves, which are used in various tobacco products. It is a plant native to the Americas and has been cultivated and used by indigenous peoples for centuries. It contains alkaloid nicotine, which is highly addictive and acts as a stimulant. Tobacco leaves are harvested, dried, and processed to create different forms of tobacco products. These include cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, chewing tobacco, snuff, and various smokeless tobacco products. It can be consumed by smoking, chewing, sniffing, and inhaling. Tobacco consumption carries significant health risks. Smoking tobacco is associated with numerous adverse health effects, including increased risk of lung cancer, heart diseases, respiratory problems, and other chronic illnesses. Secondhand smoke, the inhalation of smoke from others, also poses severe health risks. The tobacco industry is facing a rise in scrutiny and regulation due to health concerns, resulting in anti-tobacco campaigns, warning labels on packaging, and restrictions on advertising and public smoking. Efforts to reduce tobacco consumption and promote public health across India include tobacco control policies, smoking cessation programs, and public awareness campaigns highlighting the dangers of tobacco use. These initiatives aim to reduce tobacco-related health risks and promote healthier lifestyles.
