The market for nicotine pouches and snus is currently experiencing a pronounced shift away from combustible tobacco products such as cigarettes to smokeless products such as snus and tobacco-free nicotine pouches as well as a shift from offline- to online sales. The underlying reasons for a shift away from traditional smoking tobacco products are driven by an increasing demand for products which are considered as safer alternatives to cigarettes in combination with legislation that favours smokeless tobacco. This shift has resulted in all global tobacco manufacturers introducing reduced-risk product strategies where nicotine pouches are a highlighted strategic area of focus.
The snus market has historically seen an inflow of consumers that quit smoking but want to continue their consumption of nicotine. This trend has partly been driven by health concerns arising from smoking. Nicotine pouches are today experiencing a similar shift with consumers substituting cigarettes for the benefit of nicotine pouches.
