Rising high disposable income likely to fuel the growth of the smoking segment in the global organic tobacco market
The smoking segment is driving market growth across the globe as anti-tobacco activists claim that organic cigarettes help smokers quit the habit sooner as compared to conventional cigarettes. As a result, many smokers are switching to organic cigarettes and this is creating a positive impact on the smoking segment of the global organic tobacco market. Rising health consciousness has changed the preference of smokers across the globe. As organic tobacco products are less harmful (as compared to tobacco products), consumers across the globe are shifting towards organic tobacco based products rather than quitting them completely and this is one of the important reasons fuelling the growth of the smoking segment in the global organic tobacco market. An increasing awareness and eventually a rising demand for organic tobacco products is gaining traction in developed countries such as U.S., Canada, Brazil, Spain, Italy, Germany and Japan. This particular factor is boosting growth in the smoking segment of the global organic tobacco market. Organic tobacco products are expensive and therefore less popular in developing countries; however, the rising high disposable income in developed regions is driving the demand for organic cigarettes and roll-your-own tobacco products, which is further boosting the growth of the smoking segment of the global organic tobacco market.
