Tobacco-Free Nicotine Pouches/Snus: 2020 European Market Overview - Presents Current Product Offerings by Major Category Manufacturers & New Market Entrants


Dublin, Feb. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Tobacco-Free Nicotine Pouches: European Market Overview" report has been added to's offering.

The report includes EU market analysis and defines all the tobacco-free brands of nicotine pouches, also known as nicotine snus.

The analysis of tobacco-free nicotine snus included 17 brands marketed in the EU and, in particular, 137 products were studied that varied in flavor, nicotine strength and portion weight.

Numerous limitations and restrictions are in place throughout the EU on the sale of oral tobacco products, the non-tobacco nicotine snus brands have emerged as a popular alternative to tobacco-based portion pouch products.
