    Japan Tobacco Says Tax Increase to Jumpstart Smokeless Devices

    Japan’s impending tax increase on traditional cigarettes may rekindle its stalled market for smokeless devices, according to the chief executive officer of Japan Tobacco Inc. Masamichi Terabatake, who took over in January, said the new levies due to take effect in October will fall more heavily on traditional cigarettes, presenting an opportunity for tobacco companies to give more favorable pricing to next-generation devices. Investors are concerned about a stagnation in Japan’s smokeless products as the traditional cigarette business is threatened by tighter global regulations and declining smoking rates.

    [$$] Big Tobacco’s Bet on a Smokeless Cigarette Cools

    Big tobacco hoped a promising start for a new cigarette alternative in Japan could be replicated elsewhere, but slowing sales there have sparked concerns about whether smokers the world over will switch. Japan’s smoking culture and love of gadgets have made it a test market for Philip Morris International Inc. and other big tobacco companies for new devices that mimic the sensation of smoking but heat the tobacco rather than burn it. Sales of Philip Morris’s tobacco-heating device, IQOS, initially grew at a breakneck speed in Japan, capturing 15.6% of the country’s tobacco market within two years of launching nationally.

    Japan Tobacco to cut heated tobacco prices in battle with Philip Morris

    Japan Tobacco Inc (2914.T) is set to slash prices on its heated tobacco products early next week after a similar move by bigger rival Philip Morris International Inc (PM.N), signalling increased competition in Japan's nascent market for alternative cigarettes. Japan, where regular e-cigarettes with nicotine-laced liquid are effectively banned, has become the main market for "heat not burn" (HNB) products which emit less smoke and smell less than conventional cigarettes. Tobacco makers initially struggled to keep up with strong demand as they began introducing HNB products in limited Japanese markets a few years ago.

    Tobacco's Future Is High Tech, But Regular Cigs Still Rule

    Paper is still king for Japan Tobacco Inc., at least for now. While the industry may be staking its future on high-tech smoking devices as global regulations are tightening, Big Tobacco gets the majority of its money through traditional cigarettes. Overall, international cigarette sales volume rose 7.3 percent in the first quarter as the company shipped 98 billion units.

    Japan Tobacco Inc (2914.T) said on Tuesday it plans to launch a new "heat-not-burn" (HNB) product in Japan as early as the end of this year, as it tries to catch Philip Morris International (PM.N) in a growing cigarette-alternative category. Japan Tobacco is under pressure to keep its dominance in the domestic market where its sales of conventional cigarettes fell to the lowest since the former state monopoly was reorganised to the current company in 1985. Japan Tobacco is still one-third government-owned.
