About this Report

Executive Summary


  • Smoking tobacco remained a niche category in China in 2014, primarily due to a small consumer base and few leading smoking tobacco brands. Some elderly smokers in underdeveloped areas continued to use smoking tobacco, while middle-aged or young consumers regarded it as time-consuming and inconvenient compared to cigarettes. However, a small group of high-income consumers also consider it a relaxing and flexible way to smoke.
