Smokkeless Tobacco in Japan, 2019


Japan is one of the largest markets in the world for tobacco products despite falling demand. Cigarettes dominate the Japanese tobacco market accounting for nearly 100% of sales. The profile of smokeless tobacco has been negligible in comparison, with sales only approaching 1 ton per annum since the early part of the decade. However, following the successful launch of JT's new Zerostyle Mint line, which incorporates snuff, in 2010, there was temporary expansion in this market.
