The Impact of Plain Packaging on Tobacco Products: Exploring the effects of plain packaging on consumer shopping behavior and opportunities for key industry players


This report outlines the reasons behind anti-tobacco legislation, and why plain packaging has been embraced by some governments as the next step in battling tobacco usage. The motivations and methods for introducing plain packaging in the various countries that have done so so far, as well as other major markets, are analyzed for the likelihood that they will introduce plain packaging in the future. The report also looks at whether plain packaging has proven to be an effective way of encouraging existing smokers to quit or stopping new ones from taking up the habit, and how tobacco companies can mitigate against its impact.

This report outlines the nature and extent of plain packaging legislation against tobacco around the world, and examines its possible application in other industries.


- At the time of publication, nine countries around the world had plain packaging legislation in place. Countries with a higher level of public health expenditure are more likely to have an intention to introduce plain packaging legislation.
