Smoking is a bad habbit they say, but it can be so fine – I say. Today, we are introducing you the list of 9 best selling cigarettes in the world in 2020. Smoking flourished even only one or two decades ago, nowadays it’s not so popular as before. Doctors and scientists fight and struggle to prove people how harmful smoking is.
I tried cigarettes when I was only four, as my brother stole two cigarettes from my father’s packet and we tried to smoke it behind the house. As I was coughing a lot after two drags, but my brother who was three years older than me, smoked the whole cigarette. I thought it was terrible, and while my brother became ‘addictive’ at the age of 18, I didn’t really smoke for decades. Nowadays I smoke much less, than before, partly because it’s really unhealthy, partly because it became pretty expensive.
In the recent times tobacco manufacturers also produce cigarettes without nicotine and tar, in order to help people to give up smoking. It can be a good idea, but telling you the truth, if you decide to quit smoking, and you remain very tough, you will be successful. If you still smoke cigarettes (even if they don’t contain any tar and nicotine), you still practice the ceremony of lighting a cigarette. And I think this is the dangerous if you want to give up smoking.
We could always see the famous actors smoking, and they were really sexy in these films, such as Clint Eastwood, Humphrey Bogart in “Casablanca”. These times have passed by now, we can hardly see actors smoking in the movies, as it has become shame. Nevertheless I still smoke, not too much, one or packets a week. I still like the ceremony of lighting a cigarettes and having the first drag.
Now, without a further ado – let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us about the 9 best selling cigarettes in the world in 2020.
Chesterfield is the first cigarette brand on our list of the best selling cigarette brands in 2020. It comes from the US as well, and it was introduced as early as in the second half of the 19th century.
This cigarettes brand is also owned by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. Because of its menthol taste, Newport is preferred among young people. Unfortunately menthol tasted cigarettes mustn’t be sold in EC any more.
In my country this cigarette can’t be bought (exactly like Sampoerna). It’s owned by U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company. The current inventory has varying flavors and nicotine potency.
To tell you the truth guys, I have never heard about this cigarettes brand before, although it’s one the largest companies in Indonesia, and it’ also part of Philip Morris International.
We are half way on our list of the 9 best selling cigarettes in the world in 2020. Winston is also owned by Imperial Tobacco in America, and by Japan Tobacco outside the US. It was launched in 1954 and people grew to like it very soon. By 1966 it was well-known all over the world.
Camel stands on the fourth place on this list. Camel was launched in 1913 by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, like Pall Mall. It has become well-known and popular in the last decades.
3. Pall Mall
When I started to smoke, Pall Mall was the first brand I tried. I really liked it very much. It was launched in 1899, and is owned by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. In 2020 it could record higher brand value because in 2017 it was $6,427 million, comparing to $6,201 million in 2016.
L&M is on the second position on this list now, and it’s surely one of the iconic cigarettes brands from America. It’s also owned by Philip Morris International.
I think no one is surprised that the first place on our list of 10 best selling cigarettes in the world in 2020 was given to Marlboro, as usual. This Philip Morris product was launched in 1924. Definitely it’s the most famos and popular cigarettes brand in the world.
