FMI estimates the market to reach a valuation of US$ 26.7 Bn at a CAGR of over 11.5% through the end of the forecast period in 2031.
A 2016 study followed the link between menthol cigarette use and nicotine dependence in teenagers and discovered that those who smoked menthol cigarettes were more likely to get addicted to nicotine in comparison to those who didn’t.
The results of a cohort analysis using data from the American Legacy Longitudinal Tobacco Use Reduction project showed that starting with menthol cigarettes was linked to progressing to regular smoking, which resulted into frequent purchases from the smoker, boosting market prospects.
While most capsule technologies are used for hybrid (regular-to-menthol) or menthol-to-menthol spheres, exotic goods with regulatory permits, could point to previously unexplored opportunities. Various regulatory bodies and authorities have played a vital role in the growth or limitation of the flavour capsule cigarettes and will remain important for the foreseeable future.

Non-smokers who are susceptible to nicotine addiction find flavour capsules enticing and are likely make purchases. Tobacco firms have lately made emphasized on efforts to make the globe smoke-free. These statements, however, are at odds with their product advancements, which make smoked tobacco products more enticing to non-smokers.
