Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Tobacco is grown in over 125 countries around the world on over four million hectares of land, a quarter of which are in China. The global tobacco crop is worth approximately $20.0 billion, a small fraction of the total amount generated from the sale of manufactured tobacco products around the world.
