Smokkeless Tobacco in Japan, 2019
Published: May 22, 2019 Content info: 51 Pages
Description

Japan is one of the largest markets in the world for tobacco products despite falling demand. Cigarettes dominate the Japanese tobacco market accounting for nearly 100% of sales. The profile of smokeless tobacco has been negligible in comparison, with sales only approaching 1 ton per annum since the early part of the decade. However, following the successful launch of JT's new Zerostyle Mint line, which incorporates snuff, in 2010, there was temporary expansion in this market.

Smokeless Tobacco in Japan, 2019 is an analytical report by GlobalData that provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Japanese tobacco market. It covers market size and structure along with per capita and overall consumption. Additionally, it focuses on brand data, retail pricing, prospects, and forecasts for sales and consumption until 2028.

Scope

  • As of February 2019, other manufactured tobacco (2403.99.20), which includes smokeless tobacco products, faces a general import duty of 4% and a most favored nation (MFN) import duty of 3.4%.
  • China and Sweden were the main suppliers in 2017. Exports in 2017 were 0.1 tons.
  • The overall tobacco market in Japan is declining, with increased health consciousness, anti-smoking campaigns, and the rising cost of tobacco products all playing a major part in the movement of consumers away from these products.
  • A limited number of companies are active in the Japanese smokeless market. Until 2010, there was no local producer of smokeless tobacco.
