Smoking Cessation and Nicotine De-Addiction Market Expanding at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2024 to 2026

Across the world, a good opportunity exists for growth of the global nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) market. According to Foundation for a Smoke-Free World based in the U.S., the global market size of the nicotine ecosystem was US$ 785.0 billion in 2017. Smoking cessation and NRT products hold a market share of 0.3% of the global nicotine ecosystem market. This presents a huge opportunity for global NRT and smoking cessation product market players for further penetration of NRT products across the world.

The global smoking cessation and nicotine de-addiction market has two types of products: e-cigarettes and nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) products. During 2011 and 2012, NRT smoking cessation products such as nicotine chewing gums, nicotine transdermal patches, nicotine lozenges, nicotine tablets, nicotine sprays, and nicotine inhalers had a larger market size compared to e-cigarettes. But from 2013 onward, with rise in consumer penetration of e-cigarettes, especially in developed regions such as North America and Europe, demand for e-cigarettes sky-rocketed and the market size of global e-cigarettes increased many-folds compared to the market size of NRT products. In fact, the global market size of NRT products saw a slight decline. Millennial and young consumers used e-cigarettes as a smoking cessation product compared to NRT products such as chewing gum, patches, lozenges, tablets, sprays, inhalers, etc. This trend is continuing till today and is expected to continue in future.
