Tobacco refers to an agricultural product derived from the leaves of a plant named N. Tebacum, which belongs to the family of Solanacaea. It has gained traction all around the world due to one of its extremely addictive element called nicotine which constitutes about 3% of tobacco’s total dry weight. Tobacco grows in warm climates and is currently grown in over 125 countries.


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/17/2017 -- Worth billions of dollars, the global tobacco industry represents a substantial contributor to the world economy. Over the past several years, the global tobacco market has witnessed many changes both in terms of production and consumption patterns. During 2009-2010, the tobacco production declined as a result of a fall in cultivation in major tobacco producing countries such as India, China and Brazil. However, the production increased soon in the beginning of 2011, particularly in the developing nations. This can be accredited to growing population, rising disposable incomes, lenient government regulations, surrogated promotion by transnational companies and increasing number of tobacco consumers. According to a new report by Expert Market Research, the market reached a volume of 8.1 Million Tons in 2016 and is further expected to reach 10 Million Tons by 2022.
