PMI's Acquisition of Swedish Match: Driving Growth in E-cigarette Market
According to a report by Seeking Alpha, Philip Morris International (PMI) has acquired Swedish Match for $1.6 billion. This deal holds significant strategic importance for PMI's development in the e-cigarette market, particularly in advancing the IQOS and ZYN projects.
In addition, PMI announced its plan to increase the proportion of revenue from non-combustible products to two-thirds of total revenue in the coming years, reflecting the growing trend of adult smokers transitioning to non-combustible tobacco products.
PMI's IQOS product is facing a short-term challenge due to the recent implementation of a ban on heated tobacco products by the European Union on October 23, 2023, with the possibility of this ban being extended to other countries by 2024.
