The global smokeless tobacco market size reached US$ 19.12 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, the analyst expects the market to reach US$ 24.78 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.60% during 2023-2028. The growing awareness about the harmful impacts of smoking cigarettes, rising demand for flavored smokeless tobacco, and the increasing investments in snuff and gutka represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Smokeless tobacco comprises tobacco that can be chewed, swallowed, sucked, or inhaled rather than smoked. It is used as loose leaf, plug, twist, dry powder, and moist snuff, which is stored in pouches, paper packets, and small cans. It is widely available in various flavorings, such as cinnamon, berry, vanilla, and apple, and can be pressed into tablets, sticks, or strips. It can be placed between the inner cheek and gums on the lower part of the jaw to suck the tobacco juices. It allows nicotine to get into the bloodstream through the gums without swallowing tobacco. It is a safer alternative to smoking as smokeless tobacco is pasteurized to reduce the number of bacteria that can produce cancer-causing chemicals.
