Global Cigar Market 2018-2023 - Growing Popularity of Flavored Cigars to Support Market Growth - ResearchAndMarkets.com

September 6, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 6, 2018--The “Global Cigar Market - Segmented by Type (Pipe, Sweet, Flavored, Natural Leaf, Premium, Others), Pack Type (Foil pouch, Single, Others), Distribution Channel, and Geography - Growth, Trends and Forecasts (2018 - 2023)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The global cigar market is projected to grow at the rate of 8.1% during the forecast period 2018-2023.

The cigar industry is majorly influenced by changing government regulations related to tobacco products. For example, the FDA requires premium cigar manufacturers and distributors to label their products with mandatory warning statements similar to the wording already required on cigarette & tobacco packaging; these warnings must also be included in any advertisements and/or marketing for premium cigars.

Moreover, the new regulations also restrict retailers from giving away free samples of premium cigars, as Mike’s Cigars and many other distributors have used this promotional strategy in past.

On other hand, in order to attract more customers, cigar manufacturers are reducing the size of cigars to make it look like a cigarette and doing innovation to introduce different flavors in cigar.
