Nicotine pouches are small, discreet pouches that contain nicotine. These pouches do not contain tobacco leaves and are filled with a blend of food-grade fillers, flavorings, and nicotine extracted from tobacco plants. Users place the pouch between their gums and lips, and the nicotine is absorbed through the mouth. In addition, they do not produce harmful smoke, making them a popular alternative for smokers who want to reduce their exposure to harmful chemicals. Presently, nicotine pouches are available in a variety of flavors and strengths, such as mint, fruit, cinnamon, and coffee, allowing users to customize their experience. Moreover, they are also more cost-effective than traditional tobacco products, making them a more affordable option for many consumers. Owing to these properties, despite being a relatively new product in the tobacco industry, nicotine pouches have gained popularity in recent years and are consumed by the adult population across the globe.
Nicotine Pouches Market Trends:
The market is primarily driven by the rising product adoption as an alternative to smoking. Nowadays, the health risks associated with smoking have led people to adopt nicotine pouches as they offer a way to consume nicotine without smoking. In addition, the growing awareness among consumers regarding consuming tobacco leaves represents another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, nicotine pouches are gaining rapid popularity as they are white and discrete and do not stain teeth or lips. This, coupled with the easy product availability in online and walk-in stores in a variety of flavors such as coffee, mint, and fruit is contributing to the market growth. Moreover, the market is also propelled by the introduction of synthetic product variants. For instance, in February 2021, the NIIN brand launched its tobacco-free synthetic nicotine pouches available in various flavors, including wintergreen, cool mint, citrus chill, spearmint, and cinnamon, to expand its product portfolio. Along with this, the increasing mergers and acquisitions (M&As) and partnerships among key market players are positively influencing the market growth. For instance, in November 2020, British American Tobacco plc acquired the nicotine pouch assets of Dryft Sciences, LLC (Dryft), a US-based Modern Oral product company, to expand its modern oral portfolio to 28 product variants.
