The market for smokeless tobacco products stood at3,700 tons in 2014, an increase from 1,000 tons in 1990. Snuff dominates with more than 98% of volumes. The rest comprises a marginal market for chewing tobacco and a declining market for Swedish snus. Snus was promoted as an alternative to cigarettes by leading manufacturers; however, sales failed to take off.

Key Findings
- The per capita consumption of smokeless tobacco products is high by international standards. In 2014 per capita consumption stood at 77g, up from an already strong 26g per person in 1990.

- Sales of snuff have risen over the past two decades as it has developed into a niche alternative to cigarettes. Volumes were only 1,000 tonnes in 1990 but grew to more than 3,700 tonnes in 2014. Sales of snus and chewing tobacco account for a marginal share of total sales at less than five tons and less than one ton respectively, in 2014.

- Snuff exports reached a new high of more than Rand 21 million in 2008 and latest data indicate that they have trebled by 2014.

- Smokeless tobacco volumes are forecast to rise to above 3,800 tons in 2019/2020, with a fall in volume in 2024. Snuff will continue to dominate sales. Chewing tobacco and snus have both failed to capture the interest of consumers with combined sales set to remain at less than two tons per annum.
