Palm Beach, FL – July 7, 2021- The Heat-not-burn market has been growing for the last few years and is projected to continue for several years to come. Heat-not-burn devices produce a vapor containing nicotine and these can be used multiple times, which is making it popular among youngsters as they do not have to spend much for multiple purchases. As such, the devices can also be used for longer periods of time. Further, the technological improvements have led to the development of heat-not-burn devices that produce large amounts of vapor, which is seeing increased preference among enthusiasts. Heat-not-burn devices have helped many smokers quit smoking thus, making them an effective substitute for smoking. Such factors are expected to accelerate the adoption of heat-not-burn devices among individuals. A report from Grand View Research said that the global heat-not-burn market size was valued at USD 7.3 billion in 2019 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 32.8% from 2020 to 2027. The market is driven by the continuous decline in traditional cigarette sales with rising demand for possibly Reduced Risk Products (RRPs). Heat-not-burn devices do not burn tobacco, instead, they implement the use of convective and radiant heat. Thus, the devices have a low presence of nicotine and chemicals. Further, the rising prohibition and taxes on cigarettes across different countries and the growing awareness of the dangerous side-effects of tobacco consumption are driving the growth of this heat-not-burn (HNB) device market. The health risks related with chewing tobacco and cigarettes are estimated to drive the adoption of heat-not-burn devices, particularly among young population. Active companies in the markets this week include: Poda Lifestyle and Wellness Ltd. (OTCPK: PODAF) (CSE: PODA), Philip Morris International Inc. (NYSE: PM), TAAT Global Alternatives Inc. (OTCQX: TOBAF) (CSE: TAAT), British American Tobacco p.l.c (NYSE: BTI), Altria Group, Inc. (NYSE: MO).
The Grand View Research report said: “The low risks and high demand are expected to urge global manufacturers to invest in the market for heat-not-burn devices. Moreover, heat-not-burn devices are getting approval from regulatory authorities for sale in big markets such as the U.S., China, and Europe, which is anticipated to bode well for market growth. For instance, in 2018, Philip Morris International Inc. received U.S. FDA approval for the sale of heat-not-burn devices in the U.S. The rising online sales and marketing promotions by the manufacturers are expected to drive the heat not burn devices market in the forthcoming years.”
