Japan is one of the largest markets for tobacco products in the world, although demand is in decline. Cigarettes dominate the Japanese tobacco market, accounting for nearly 100% of tobacco sales. The profile of smokeless tobacco, in comparison, is negligible, with sales only approaching 1 ton per annum since the early part of the decade. However, the picture changed in 2010 following the successful launch of JT's new Zerostyle Mint line, which incorporates snuff. JT's initial figures suggested that snuff sales had already reached unprecedented levels.

Key Findings
- The overall tobacco market in Japan is declining, with increased health consciousness, anti-smoking campaigns, and the rising cost of tobacco products all playing a major part in the movement away from these products

- The latest data for 2014 put the percentage of adult smokers at almost 1 in 5 according to JTI. The overwhelming majority of smokers consume cigarettes

- Japan Tobacco has limited interests in the sector in global terms, but during 2010 launched a new innovative snuff-based smokeless product, Zerostyle Mint, which attracted considerable consumer interest
