It covers market size and structure along with per capita and overall consumption.

Smoking tobacco is the smallest sector of the US tobacco market, with just 4.8% of overall volume, yet it has recently been the most buoyant sector in the overall market, mainly growing at the expense of manufactured cigarettes. Two manufacturers have historically dominated the smoking tobacco market. These are Top Tobacco, part of the private Republic Group, and Lane Ltd., which is now owned by Scandinavian Tobacco Group having been divested by Reynolds American in March 2011. Republic took 41% of the market in 2015 while STG Lane took a further 33%.

Scope

- US smokers have traditionally preferred factory-made cigarettes, with FCT a relatively niche market. The constant increase in cigarette prices in recent years, due to increasing excise, has caused consumers to switch to smoking tobacco although it has been pipe tobacco which has benefitted the most as it has been marketed as a quasi-FCT product.
- The growth in pipe tobacco products has blurred the traditional dominance of the major players, although the latest GlobalData research suggests that key brands still dominate. STG’s Bugler brand had a 28.1% share in 2014, followed by three brands from the Republic Group - Top (14%), Gambler (11.1%), and Largo (9.9%).
