Overview

Cigarettes continue to dominate the smoking tobacco product market, accounting for approximately 91 percent of sales in 2011. However, the use of other smoking tobacco products has increased over the past 10 years. Between 2001 and 2011, combined sales of roll-your-own tobacco, pipe tobacco, and small and large cigars grew from 3 percent of the smoking tobacco market to 9 percent. Although cigarette use in the United States is declining, it is partially offset by growing use of other smoking tobacco products. (See app. II for data on U.S. sales of smoking tobacco products from fiscal year 2001 through fiscal year 2011.)
