Renewable energy

Key vendors to consider demographic trends for product line expansion.

Technavio, a company that develops over 2000 pieces of research every year and covers more than 500 technologies across 80 countries, has announced the top five vendors for the global favored cigar market in their latest research report. This report also lists nine other prominent vendors who are expected to contribute to this market’s growth between 2017-2021.

Competitive vendor landscape

The presence of several small and large vendors makes the global flavored cigars market highly fragmented in nature. Price, quality, innovation, reputation, and distribution are some of the key criteria that vendors in the market space compete based upon. The intensifying competition is likely to spur companies to reduce their product prices, which will negatively impact margins and market growth. Some companies are more specialized than others with respect to commodities and some have larger financial resources than other companies.

According to Manjunath Reddy, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on food, “The dynamics in the global flavored cigars market are expected to fluctuate based on changing consumer demands and preferences. Some other factors that have a direct impact on the market scenario include consumer tastes; regional, local, and national economic conditions; and demographic trends. This makes it imperative for manufacturers in the market space to distinguish their product and service offerings through clear and unique value propositions.”
