The Danish tobacco market is very disparate to its Scandinavian counterparts as the smokeless tobacco market is proportionately niche compared to its northern neighbors.
A ban was forced on the portion snus, the most popular smokeless tobacco product, that lead to the entire segment falling to only 7 tons of consumption in 2016 compared to 75 tons in 2015, before the ban. It badly affected the overall size of the market
The illegal consumption of loose snus that was imported from other Scandinavian countries has met the local demand for the same since the ban in early 2016. As per records, 20% of Danes used smokeless tobacco irregularly but only 1% of the total population used it regularly.
With the ban on snus and the additional part of other smokeless tobacco products like chewing tobacco expected to stay, the entire segment is forecasted to remain small and very niche in the medium-to-long term.
This segment of the market is expected to descend further to only 6.4 tons though by 2025, because of the changing consumer habits and the continued ban of snus which clearly depicts that in spite of the ban being there, the habits of the users of smokeless tobacco are not going to be changed that easy and many new users are expected to evolve as well with the passage of time.
