The global cigar and cigarillos market size is projected to grow from $5,862 million in 2017 to $6,824 million by 2028.

The tobacco/No flavor segment dominates the global market with a share of around 39% in 2017. Increasing demand for cigars among females as well as an increasing number of young females smoking tobacco products has led to growth opportunities for this segment over the forecast period.
Cigars are a variety of tobacco products with the primary ingredient being ground-up cured and fermented tobacco leaf. Cigarillos, on the other hand, are smaller cigars that have a length of not more than six inches. They can be made up of two types of tobaccos—the first is traditional cigar filler wrapped in either natural or synthetic leaves to form its body; the second type has stronger flavors like fruit & candy, mint & menthol, or chocolate&vanilla flavorings added into it.
On the basis of type, cigar and cigarillos are segmented into tobacco/no flavor, fruit & candy, mint & menthol, and chocolate&vanilla.
Tobacco/No Flavor Cigars are a type of cigar that does not have any flavor, just tobacco. This category includes cigars without flavorings, such as the Cuban Cohiba or Montecristo brand. One of the most popular cigar and cigarillos have tobacco as its basic ingredient. Tobacco is used to give cigars a stronger flavor, but in some cases, it can have no taste at all. Cigarillos are generally small cigars that range from about three inches to four inches long with diameters ranging between half an inch to one inch (25 mm).
The fruit & candy flavor cigar and cigarillos are the flavor of bubble gum. This kind of cigars and cigarillos is a type that has been introduced by DMND Cigars in 2017, which was created to attract younger smokers. Due to this trend, many manufacturers have launched these new product lines with flavors such as blueberry lemonade or grape soda.
Mint and menthol flavor cigarillos are made of either tobacco or no flavor. They have a refreshing, icy feel to them with the hint of mint or menthol filling in for traditional flavors that can be found in other cigars. Mint and menthol-flavored cigarillos also provide an alternative smoke for those who may not like the taste of tobacco but want to enjoy smoking outside without worrying about offending others with secondhand smoke.
Chocolate and vanilla cigarillos are a type of small, low-cost cigars. The tobacco is typically flavored with chocolate or vanilla flavors while the outer wrapper can be dark brown to hide imperfections in construction. They are often sold loose (not in packs) for convenience and budget purposes, but they come in many different sizes as well.
