Global Reconstituted Tobacco Leaf Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Tobacco leaves that have been separated from the stem, chopped into small pieces and then re-formed into a sheet are called Reconstituted Tobacco Leaf. This type of tobacco is used in cigarettes, cigars and pipe tobacco. The sheet is made by blending different types of tobacco together and then pressing them into a thin sheet.


Flaky is a type of tobacco that has been processed to remove the majority of the moisture present in it. It is then dried and cut into small pieces, which are ready for consumption. The product was first introduced in Europe and North America, where it gained popularity owing to its mildness as compared to other types of cigarettes available at that time.


Filamentous fungi consist of long, branched chains of cells. These fungi are responsible for reconstituting tobacco leaves and producing a tobacco-like flavor & texture through the process called mycoflora conversion. The product is used in the manufacturing of various types of cigarettes including filter tip, full flavor, mentholated and non-mentholated cigarettes.

The global filamentous fungi market size was valued at USD 2.5 billion in 2015.

Application Insights:

Medium and short cigarette are expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Medium and short cigarettes have higher nicotine delivery compared to conventional or fine cigarettes. The conventional cigarette segment is further divided into Fine Cigarette, Medium & Short Cigarette, And Long Smoking Pipe (LSP) segments based on the number of tobacco pouches used in manufacturing a single unit of smoke from burning tobacco leaves.

Conventional cigarette was estimated as the largest application segment in 2015 owing to its high consumption rate across the globe especially among smokers who prefer low cost products with less nicotine content. Increasing awareness related to adverse effects associated with smoking has resulted in declining demand for these products particularly among adult population groups thus impacting overall industry growth negatively since 2014.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest regional market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounts for a major share of global tobacco production and consumption, which makes it a key region for reconstitution products. China accounted for approximately 45% of Asia Pacific market volume in 2017 owing to large production as well as consumption volumes within the country.

North America is projected to be one of the fastest-growing regions with CAGR exceeding 5% from 2018 to 2030 due to increasing demand from countries such as U.S.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for reconstituted tobacco leaf from the cigarette manufacturers owing to its low price and high quality.
  • Rising demand for reconstituted tobacco leaf in the Asia Pacific region due to the increasing population and rising disposable income of the people.
  • Growing use of reconstituted tobacco leaf in smokeless tobacco products such as chewing tobacco, snuff, and dipping tobaccos owing to its low moisture content and good flavor profile.
  • Technological advancements in the production of reconstituted tobacco leaves that has resulted in higher yields and improved quality of the product.
