Snus refers to a moist, finely ground form of smokeless product that is produced commonly in Sweden from the combination of dried tobacco leaves and salt. Unlike cigarettes, snus is placed behind the lower or upper lip for an extended period of time, which stimulates nicotine from the product. The presence of this component thus assists in reducing stress and anxiety, while acting as a smokeless product. At present, snus is commercially available in varying types, including loose and portion.
Snus Market Trends:
The shifting inclination of consumers toward snus as a safer alternative to various other tobacco-based products, such as smoke pipes, cigars, and cigarettes, can be attributed to the increasing health consciousness and the growing requirement for smokeless tobacco products. While manufacturing snus, the tobacco steam is pasteurized instead of fermentation, which in turn, aids in lowering the rate of oral, pulmonary, respiratory, and pancreatic cancer and mitigating the growth of microbes that generate tobacco-specific nitrosamines. In line with this, the government of various countries are undertaking favorable initiatives and organizing campaigns to sensitize people regarding the hazardous impact of smoking cigarettes, which is further facilitating the demand for snus across the globe. Additionally, the increasing incorporation of herbs in the production of snus, along with their easy availability on both online and offline market channels, including convenience stores, hypermarkets, and e-commerce platforms, is propelling the market growth. Other factors, such as the escalating investments in the research and development activities and strategic collaborations amongst key players for introducing various flavor-infused snus, such as berries, whiskey, spices, cedar, dry fruit, hay, tea, smoky, eucalyptus, and licorice, are creating a positive outlook for the market.
