Convenience stores make up a large part of the lighter industry in the UAE in terms of distribution channels. This is due to the widespread availability of convenience stores across the country. Tobacco shops have also proven to be a good choice in this case. Moreover, many people prefer to buy a lighter every time they buy a new pack of cigarettes because they often lose their lighters. These factors favor the industrial growth of the region. Due to the low cost of cigarettes in the country, the UAE is expected to witness a strong expansion during the forecast period. Market expansion by major players, along with significant untapped opportunities, is driving growth. In addition, investments in the tobacco industry have increased, especially in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Due to the high tax imposed by the government, Emirates is increasingly focusing on expanding tobacco sales. In the coming years, these factors are expected to contribute to demand growth.

Market trends

The lighter industry in the United Arab Emirates is at an all-time high, thanks to an increase in tobacco consumption. The high rate of tobacco use among UAE citizens, especially those over the age of 18, has contributed to the growth of the industry. This, combined with the absence of strict tobacco laws and a high standard of living, is likely to increase the demand for lighters in the region. In addition, the establishment of minimum prices and the introduction of new rules, which will allow for the first time in the region the legal sale of electronic cigarettes and vaping devices, are expected to have a positive impact on the industry. However, health risks such as lung cancer, asthma, and oral health issues among others are expected to slow down the demand growth during the forecast period. At the same time, the growth of the industry is expected to be supported in the coming years by the increasing penetration of key players in the region, as well as the increasing emphasis on product commercialization.
