Top Trends in Tobacco and Anti-Smoking Aids 2017: Exploring the latest trends in cigarettes and smoking tobacco, cigars and cigarillos, smokeless tobacco, e-cigarettes and smoking alternatives

Summary
Traditional tobacco flavors appeal most to European and North American smokers, while in other regions consumers demonstrate a stronger preference for fruity and minty/floral tobacco flavors. 52% of smokers prioritize flavor when shopping for cigarettes. That 61% of smokers enjoy the taste and smell of tobacco-flavored cigarettes is evidence that the traditional smoker still forms a key target for cigarette manufacturers.

It has identified five key smoker groups impacting innovation in tobacco -
- Traditional: Driven by a concern for authentic, high-quality tobacco products with a long heritage and traditional flavour. The use of organic materials appeals to traditional smokers who seek simplicity and tradition above all else. Smokers in this group demonstrate brand loyalty and a desire for the familiar.
- Occasional/Social: Occasional smokers enjoy indulgent tobacco products, while social smokers smoke when socializing with friends, preferring ‘experiences’ to ‘things’. Targeting occasions should unlock growth in this group of mostly millennial consumers; a group characterized by shifting consumption priorities.
- Novelty: Novelty smokers experiment with unique flavors and ingredients, and seek products which offer exciting tobacco consumption moments. Vaping and e-cigarettes offer the most direct access to this group, and are increasing their appeal among various consumer groups, young and old.
- Premium: Premium smokers seek to distinguish themselves through the purchases they make, with a focus on quality ingredients, exclusivity and heritage brands. They are found increasingly in emerging markets, where incomes are rising following strong economic performance in recent years.
- Female: Female smokers are concerned about the aesthetic impact of smoking, and seek gender-specific products with discrete odors and a ‘clean’ image. Non-combustible devices offer a way forward here.

Key Implication
- The Traditional Smoker: Retain focus on standard tobacco flavours and high-quality ingredients.
- The Occasional/Social Smoker: Legislation permitting, use flavours associated with indulgence and social occasions to target this group. Alcoholic cocktail flavours work well.
- The Novelty Smoker: Use novel ingredients and innovations in packaging to appeal to this group.
- The Premium Smoker: High-quality, premium ingredients carry appeal for this group. Customizable vaping hardware allows smokers to distinguish themselves.
- The Female Smoker: Concerned about the aesthetic impact of tobacco consumption, target this group with minty/floral flavors and discrete odors.
