Tobacco is produced by curing the leaves of Nicotiana tabacum, an annually grown herbaceous plant. Tobacco curing is an important process and is done after harvesting as the leaves are considered too wet to be consumed in their raw and fresh form. The spend momentum of this market will be attributed to the increase in the premiumization of cigars following the popularity and the consumption of cigars will contribute to the market’s spend growth.
