Tobacco has been used by humans for many years for a variety of reasons. It has traditionally played an important role in ceremonies and served to mark special occasions for some. Others have used it to boost alertness or to relax and connect with friends and acquaintances at social gatherings. 

Tobacco can be smoked, chewed, or sniffed. Cigarettes, cigars, bidis, and kreteks are examples of smoked tobacco products. Some people also use a pipe or hookah to smoke loose tobacco (water pipe). Chewing tobacco, snuff, dip, and snus are all chewed tobacco products while snuff can also be sniffed.

Various types of tobacco available in the market include aromatic fire-cured, latakia, cavendish, corojo, criollo, dokha, habano, maduro, perique, and shade tobacco. 

The tobacco market forecast is accomplished by considering fastest growing and largest segments. By type, the burley tobacco segment was the highest revenue contributor in 2019, as it contains some amount of sugar and has better taste as compared to other types of tobacco. By product, the cigarette segment held the largest tobacco market share due to constant product innovation in terms of flavor, size, ingredients, and nicotine level of cigarettes. Depending on the distribution channel, the specialty stores segment led the market, owing to availability of large variety of tobacco in these stores. 

Globally, the number of smokers has been increasing. This trend is being accelerated by the introduction of new products such as clove cigarettes and menthol cigars. These factors are expected to drive the market over the next few years. 

Furthermore, with consumers gradually shifting toward smoking alternatives in recent years, the introduction of innovative tobacco products in a variety of flavor options has become critical. As a result, manufacturers have shifted their focus to premium tobacco products made from flue-cured tobacco and fine whole leaf.

The introduction of numerous premium tobacco products by manufacturers, such as flavored, long & skinny, colored, and e-cigarettes, has created a strong outlook for the tobacco market growth. Increased investment in R&D has resulted in the introduction of products with lower levels of toxicants. This has aided in attracting a larger consumer base for tobacco products.

Higher levels of education as well as growing awareness about health concerns related to tobacco consumption, such as various types of cancers, cardiovascular diseases, and pulmonary diseases, has hampered the market growth. In addition, stringent regulations in developed countries further limit the market growth.
