The Global Trends in Nicotine reports contribute to laying the groundwork for the Foundation’s work in the area of industry transformation, and represents an important step in the Foundation’s research program. Specifically, the reports identify the major players in nicotine delivery, outline their product organization and geographic focus, and quantify their output. Building upon this work, the Tobacco Transformation Index will over time evaluate 15 of the largest nicotine delivery companies in the world.
