TobaccoIntelligence modern oral tobacco market size Q2 2021

19th July 2021 - Market data |

TobaccoIntelligence has studied the growth of the modern oral market to provide forecasts of market size and user numbers up to 2022. The data – focused on the US, Sweden, and Norway – includes a breakdown of the market value of snus and nicotine pouches, and the number of modern oral users.

The market for oral tobacco is a fast-moving one in a period of rapid change and growth, so it’s important for industry stakeholders to keep on top of the latest developments.

2021 looks set to become another significant year for the tobacco-alternatives industry, with new regulations on the horizon – and hopefully some light at the end of the tunnel after the Covid-19 pandemic.

Taxation will once again be one of the hot topics in Europe, with a final decision due from the European Commission on introducing a harmonised tax scheme for heated tobacco products.

A roadmap will be put through a consultation process in the first quarter of 2021 before the final decision is taken in the third quarter of the year.

Another significant date is the end of May when Brussels will publish the Tobacco Products Directive impact assessment, which is expected to shape near-future policies towards tobacco alternatives.

Meanwhile, the market continues to grow in the US, where British American Tobacco (BAT) says the modern oral segment experienced global revenue growth of 57% in 2020, with an increase of 45% in shipments to the US, with 162m pouches.

BAT also expects the upcoming national rollout of nicotine pouch brand Dryft in the US to have “great momentum for future success” following its purchase in late 2020.
