A look at 2022
2022 has been quite a year for us at Snusline. Changing market trends and the challenges we have faced regarding customs related issues have urged us to add more nicotine pouches and stronger nicotine products to our product line. Indeed, we’ve added tons of new products and even removed some we felt you weren’t crazy about. Our catalog now includes over 500 products in stock and includes many different brands of portion snus, loose snus and nicotine pouches alike.
Top sellers of 2022 – Snus and Nicotine Pouches
Let’s take a look at 2022’s most popular products. Based on information gathered from our top sellers in 2022, Snusline’s top ten have really shown us that Snusline customers are in line with current market trends:
The mint flavor segment dominated the market with a revenue share of over 38% in 2021. The availability of mint-flavored snus may make it easier for consumers to use the product because they find its odor, flavor, pleasantness, and intensity to be more appealing.
It seems Snusline customers agree with this statement since our top 10 are all mint flavored snus and nicotine pouches, with one exception; gotta keep some classical tasting snus for those tobacco lovers!

Welcoming 2023 – New Trends in Nicotine Pouches/Flavors
Although we can barely refer to nicotine pouches as snus, since they lack the one ingredient that makes snus “snus”, nicotine pouches are the same as snus in every other way: they contain nicotine and are a smokeless tobacco product that is consumed in ready-to-use pouches that you place between your lip and gums.
Modern innovation and technology have allowed the nicotine pouch world to explode with new enticing flavors that are much more appealing to the younger crowd. A bunch of new nicotine pouches have fruity sweet flavors like mango, strawberry, forest fruits, and many more …
And for those who want explosive strength and lip numbing icy cool mint flavors, Siberia has developed a new all-white nicotine pouch boasting 33 mg/g of nicotine strength in three formats: large, slim and super slim for every consumer preference.
At Snusline, we’re always on the lookout for emerging trends so we can bring you the best products at the best prices.
Snus Market Trends
The snus market continues to rise at a rate of 4.3% since 2021. This trend is rising steadily and is expected to reach $4.1 billion dollars by 2030 in the US alone according to Yahoo!Finance. According to imarcgroup, “The global snus market size reached US$ 2.9 Billion in 2022” and is expected to rise at a rate of “4.92% during 2023-2028.” As a matter of fact, the Big Four have already made the transition to snus and nicotine pouches, as the future of nicotine products:
- BAT (British American Tobacco) have developed LYFT and VELO nicotine pouches
- Imperial Tobacco bought Skruf and Knox snus and later developed Skruf Super White as an all-white nicotine pouch.
- JPI (Japan Tobacco International) developed Nordic Spirit nicotine pouches
- Altria (Previously Philip Morris Companies) acquired both Swedish Match (Zyn and General) and AG snus
“In the US, BAT continues to hold by far the greatest share of the snus market (around 80%) after taking over Reynolds in 2017. Swedish Match has around 10%, Altria 6%”
GN Tobacco is not part of the big four since its production is limited to Swedish tobacco, namely snus and more recently, nicotine pouches. As stated on their website, “GN Tobacco produces and distributes snus chewing tobacco, and nicotine pouches to more than 70 countries in the World.” Needless to say, GN Tobacco manufactures some of the most popular and best quality snus and nicotine pouches in terms of flavor, strength and affordability; it’s no wonder 6 out of our top 10 sellers are made by this outstanding manufacturer. Indeed, Oden’s, Siberia and White Fox are all developed and made by GN Tobacco in their top manufacturing facilities with great emphasis on quality.
COVID-19 and Snus
The covid pandemic has really affected the snus and nicotine pouch market growth trend. Smoking, and even vaping, has taken the back seat compared to nicotine pouches and snus.
For tobacco lovers, snus is the way to go and nicotine pouches will never satisfy someone who is not willing or ready to give up their tobacco.
In terms of practicality, both snus and nicotine pouches are exactly the same; they can both be taken anywhere, anytime and can easily be disposed of without affecting your surroundings.
Indeed, when it comes to discretion, snus and nicotine pouches are the best smokeless tobacco and tobacco-free nicotine alternative. In addition, snus and nicotine pouches fail in comparison to the health hazards of smoking and the adverse effects of secondhand smoke, making them increasingly popular with older and younger nicotine users alike.
