Cigarettes in Japan, 2018

Summary

"Cigarettes in Japan, 2018", is an analytical report by GlobalData which provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Japanese market.

While Japan is one of the largest markets for cigarettes in the world, demand has been in continuous decline since 1998. Per capita consumption levels remain relatively high by global standards but they have fallen consistently from 1999 to 2016.

Scope

- The incidence of smoking among Japanese males is very high relative to comparable economies, but has been steadily declining.
- Japan Tobacco retains a legal monopoly over cigarette production in Japan and remains the dominant supplier.
- GlobalData thus remains pessimistic about the long-term prospects for the cigarette market. Volumes are set to fall by around a third between 2017 and 2027.
