There is a large market for smokeless tobacco products in India due to the country’s large population, the wide variety of ways in which this type of tobacco is used, and its artisanal production base. Recent actions by Central and State authorities on smoking appear to limit the availability of smokeless tobacco, with volumes falling annually since 2012. Canadean figures for 2014 show a reduced market of around 165,000 tons.
Taking into consideration the whole Tobacco market, smokeless dominates, accounting for more than 40% of total tobacco consumption, followed by bidis (40%), and cigarettes (less than 20%).
