Government campaigns and wholesaler bypass will also have an adverse effect on tobacco product sales over the next five years.
Companies within this industry acquire packaged cigarettes and other tobacco products from manufacturers and sell the goods to various retail stores such as supermarkets and convenience stores, specialized tobacco stores and bars.
