Tobacco is made from the leaves of the tobacco plant. Tobacco is a part of the genus Nicotiana & nightshade plant family. In order to prevent it from bacteria, aroma transmission, good quality of the packaging is required. Packaging plays a vital role as it provides information on the product's content, the ingredient, and keeps the product in perfect condition.

Market Dynamics

Various tobacco products are available, such as cigarettes, cigars, E-cigarette & smokeless tobacco for chewing or dipping, dissolvable tobacco, pipes, and hookah-cigarettes. Growing population, changing lifestyles, and technological advancement are some of the factors driving the tobacco packaging market trends. The equality laws for men and women, which led to a high number of female smokers, are another driving factor in the market.

Stressful life, increased workload, and a hectic schedule encourage tobacco consumption. The introduction of smokeless tobacco for chewing or dipping and E-cigarettes are significant trends in the global market for tobacco packaging. In addition, diseases such as mouth cancer and lung cancer caused by tobacco hinder the global market's growth. The government and NGOs are organizing anti-tobacco campaigns to raise awareness of the hazardous effects of tobacco. The World Health Organization (WHO) has also launched a number of projects to control tobacco consumption, such as mAwareness & mSmoke-free.

In 2016, China was the top producer with an output of approximately 2.8 million metric tonnes of tobacco. The driving force behind the demand in countries such as China and India are the increasing economy and an increase in the population of young people in these countries.

In addition, the e-cigarette market has expanded considerably due to the fact that e-cigarettes are less harmful than smoking tobacco. Most of the world's cigarettes are consumed in the Western Pacific region.
