The COVID-19 pandemic brought unprecedented challenges for many sectors in early 2020. Lockdowns, border restrictions, travel bans, manufacturing discontinuation, and other safety measures rolled out by governments as per the guidelines of the WHO and national health ministries hampered the manufacturing operations. On the other hand, according to studies conducted by the American College of Physicians, during the first 16 months of the COVID-19 pandemic, cigarette sales in the US were greater than anticipated. The majority of the tobacco companies witnessed a surge in demand for smokeless or heated tobacco products and chewing tobacco products during the pandemic.

Due to the rising health concerns related to the consumption of combustible tobacco products, governments have encouraged companies to introduce several laws and regulations to keep a check on tobacco consumption. They have raised combustible tobacco taxes and lowered noncombustible tobacco prices. This resulted in a greater uptake of noncombustible products, such as e-cigarettes. For instance, the UK government adopted a holistic approach by significantly increasing the taxes on combustible tobacco products and lowering the taxes on noncombustible products. This increased the adoption of e-cigarettes in the UK market, significantly reducing the smoking prevalence rates in the country. Manufacturers have also developed oral, noncombustible, or smokeless tobacco products under the reduced-risk products (RRPs) category.
