Kicking the habit: Antismoking campaigns and declining smoking rates will singe wholesalers
Cigarette & Tobacco Products Wholesaling in the US
The Cigarette and Tobacco Products Wholesaling industry has performed well over the past five years despite growing regulatory, economic and operational challenges. Over the past two decades, cigarettes and other tobacco products have faced intense regulatory scrutiny from both the government and the public. Although tobacco wholesalers have performed well over the past five years, more consumers will continue to reduce tobacco consumption or quit smoking altogether in the coming years, driving down demand for cigarettes and other conventional tobacco products.
Companies within this industry acquire packaged cigarettes and other tobacco products from manufacturers and sell the goods to retailers such as convenience stores, supermarkets, specialized tobacco stores, street vendors or internet tobacco retailers. They may also sell to other wholesalers. The sales and distribution offices of tobacco product manufacturers are included in this industry.
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.
