Smoke signals: After a temporary revival during the recession, demand declines will resume

Cigarette & Tobacco Manufacturing in the US

Just when Americans were showing signs of reduced smoking habits, the recession rolled in and shattered the trend. The stress of layoffs, foreclosures and a tumbling stock market drove many to relieve some tension by habitually lighting up a cigarette. As the economy improves, though, the percentage of US smokers is expected to return to its downward trend.

Operators in this industry manufacture cigarettes, cigars, smoking and chewing tobacco, and reconstituted tobacco. Tobacco manufacturers acquire raw materials from tobacco growers, paper and fiber manufacturers, tobacco stemmers and tobacco redryers and process these into tobacco products sold to wholesalers and retailers.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
