Global Tobacco Packaging Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Tobacco Packaging is the process of enclosing tobacco within containers for sale or storage. The primary purpose of tobacco packaging is to protect the tobacco from physical and environmental damage.

Cartons Material:

Tobacco packaging is an integral part of the tobacco industry. Cartons material has been a major component in tobacco packaging market owing to its properties such as moisture barrier and high strength. The global carton material market size was estimated at USD 2,64 billion in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period on account of rising demand for cigarettes across the globe coupled with increasing consumption by millennials due to growing affordability factor.

Film Material:

Film material is a thin, flexible, plastic-based sheet used in the packaging of tobacco products. It offers several advantages over conventional materials such as paper and corrugated board; it is lightweight, moisture resistant and can be produced to order.

The global film material market size was estimated at USD 1.91 billion in 2016 and is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for tobacco packaging from emerging economies including China and India.

Application Insights:

The other application segment includes smokeless tobacco packaging, cigars and others. Smokeless tobacco packaging dominated the other application segment in terms of revenue share in 2017. This is attributed to increasing demand for snuff from various end-use industries such as pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, personal care products among others.

Cigarette factory was the largest volume-based category that accounted for a revenue share of 33.3% in 2017 owing to growing demand from developing countries such as India and China where cigarette consumption has increased at a rapid pace over the past few years.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global tobacco packaging market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounts for nearly 60% of global production and consumption of cigarettes, which makes it a key regional market. Furthermore, countries such as China, India and Japan are among the top five cigarette-producing nations globally. These factors are anticipated to drive demand for tobacco products in APAC over the forecast period.

North America is projected to witness significant growth from 2018 to 2030 owing to rising consumer awareness regarding health issues associated with smoking coupled with stringent regulations on tobacco manufacturing by governments across U.S.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for cigarettes from the developing countries
  • Rising awareness about the harmful effects of smoking
  • Stringent government regulations on tobacco packaging and advertising
  • Growing popularity of e-cigarettes and other vaping products
  • Technological advancements in tobacco packaging
