Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Point of sale is the most important factor driving the sales of cigarettes and other tobacco products. People purchase more tobacco at shops, and, therefore, POS advertising is much more effective than any other promotional or advertising method. POS not only helps in enhancing brand awareness, but it also increases volume sales. This method is adopted across the world for increasing sales and awareness among consumers.”

According to the report, MEA was one of the fastest growing tobacco markets in 2014. The increasing population, high disposable income, changing consumer demographics, and more available options have seen the demand for tobacco products in MEA surge. Rising smoking prevalence among a large young population and increased company activities in the region drive the growth of the tobacco market.
