Tobacco packaging market is expected to register a CAGR of 3.7% during 2020–2030. Surging popularity of e-cigarettes creating growth opportunities.
The paper category, within the material type segment, will continue to dominate the market till 2030. This will be because of the preference for paper for packing cigarettes, which are the most-widely consumed tobacco products across the world. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 1 billion people used the nearly 6 trillion cigarettes manufactured in 2019. Moreover, the environment-friendly nature of paper and paperboard materials has resulted in their increasing usage in packaging tobacco and its end-products.
The primary category, under the packaging type segment, will witness the faster growth in the coming years. This is because primary packaging is easy to remove and has an attractive appearance and high utility.
Currently, the Asia-Pacific (APAC) tobacco packaging market generates the highest revenue due to the large-scale production and consumption of tobacco products in China. The China National Tobacco Corporation manufactures around one-third of all the cigarettes in the world. The WHO states that in 2019, China was home to 300 million, or one-third of the smokers, in the world.
To meet the domestic demand, the tobacco packaging industry of China has increased its focus on technological developments. Besides, the booming disposable income of the middle class and improving infrastructure have amplified the demand for tobacco products in India, South Korea, Japan, and Thailand. Owing to this, the requirement for wooden boxes, paper and paperboards, and cans as packaging materials has surged significantly.
The consumption of tobacco-based products is growing due to the rising work pressure. Nicotine, the key component of tobacco, is a psychoactive mood-altering chemical, which stimulates the release of dopamine in the body, after reaching the brain. Dopamine release helps in relieving stress by creating a sensation of relaxation and pleasure. According to the WHO, 1.337 billion people, including 43 million aged 13–15, used tobacco in 2018 to deal with peer pressure, personal views, social and physical environment, and deteriorating mental health. Thus, the tobacco packaging market will witness substantial growth due to the burgeoning demand for tobacco products for reducing stress.
The market for tobacco packaging materials has a high growth potential due to the mounting demand for e-cigarettes. Vaping products are becoming popular among the youth, especially those within the age bracket of 15–20, because of their easy usage, cost-efficiency, odor-free nature, low chemical content, fewer health implications, and zero ash production. Moreover, the usage of e-cigarettes has no risk of fire and causes minimal teeth staining. Additionally, the flavor and cartridge strength of these products can be customized according to the requirement and taste of users.
Apart from this, vaping products have become a major fashion trend in today’s times. The metallic-foil accents and vivid graphics on their packaging help in highlighting the more than 8,000 unique flavors that are available in the market. These aesthetic packaging options are offering lucrative opportunities to material providers and packaging firms.
