North America held the largest revenue share of the market in 2022. North America is one of the biggest regional markets for the nicotine pouches market in the world. While traditional cigarette consumption continues its downward spiral, the demand for nicotine pouches is growing. As more individuals seek alternatives to traditional tobacco products, nicotine pouches emerge as a smoke-free option, allowing users to satisfy their nicotine cravings without the combustion-related health risks associated with smoking. Nicotine pouches provide a way to satisfy nicotine cravings without exposing users to the harmful byproducts of combustion, contributing to the overall decline in the smoking rate. The ease of use is a major draw for consumers seeking a low-maintenance nicotine fix. All these factors are driving the demand for nicotine pouches in North America.

    Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Nicotine Pouches Market

    The COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected the market in 2020 due to the shutdown of manufacturing facilities and restrictions on transportation and logistics. Disruptions in supply chains also hampered the supply of nicotine pouches. Manufacturers adapted their processes to international and domestic restrictions imposed by government, to protect their employees from the SARS-CoV-2 infection. Many nicotine pouch producers temporarily halted their operations or allowed production processes with limited employee strength. During the onset of pandemic, lockdowns and restrictions led to temporary decline in purchases, from various distribution channels such as supermarkets, hypermarkets and convenience stores. However, according to the British American Tobacco report published in 2021, the consumers transitioned towards e-commerce sites for purchase of nicotine pouches. A report by Nicokick released in 2021, revealed 250% growth in the sales of nicotine pouches in the US during January to June 2020.

    Despite these consequences, businesses started recovering as the governments of various countries brought relaxation in social restrictions. In 2021, rising vaccination rates contributed to improvements in the overall conditions across globe. Key market players operated at full capacities, thereby helping them to overcome the demand-supply gap. Moreover, successful vaccination drives have further eased the current scenario leading to a rise in business activities across the world.
