Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Cigarette Market 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Cigarette Market: Philip Morris International, British American Tobacco, Japan Tobacco International and Imperial Tobacco Group

The other prominent vendors are: ITC, Karelia Fine Tobaccos, Carnilinx Tobacco Company, ntc industries and Golden Tobacco

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Product innovations are common in mature markets in order to sustain the curiosity and interest of consumers, and the cigarette market is no different. Many companies time and again introduce new variants of old products to encourage brand recognition among consumers. For instance, Camel Crush, a cigarette brand, introduced cigarettes with built-in capsules that, when crushed, produce a menthol flavor. Similarly, in 2012, Marlboro also introduced capsule cigarettes under the name of Marlboro NXT.”

According to the report, numerous consolidations from TTCs drive the market. As of 2013, approximately 80% of the total market was controlled by only a few players. Constant consolidation is an important factor driving the market, as this enables international players to stay ahead of local players. Moreover, consolidations are needed right now, especially in mature markets like the US, to ensure company diversification and enable them to introduce innovations in the market in terms of flavors, packaging, and products and thereby sustain long-term growth.

Further, the report states that governmental restrictions are often responsible for the slowdown in cigarette consumption.
