Suppliers of cigarette paper in China

Map of Chinese Cigarette Paper Manufacturers

Map of Chinese Cigarette Paper Manufacturers

Last week, I posted an article about cigarette paper suppliers worldwide.

None of the 7 manufacturers is from China.

Interestingly, one-third of global cigarette paper is made in China.

Most of the cigarette paper is used in domestic cigarette production.

That’s why Chinese cigarette paper manufacturers don’t have much presence in the global market.

It is not hard to recognize the main cigarette paper suppliers in China.

Due to the strict tobacco control policy, only manufacturers who own a Tobacco Monopoly Production Enterprise License can produce cigarette paper.

That means only a handful of producers are qualified.

In this article, let’s see the biggest 5 local manufacturers from China.

(so the joint venture of Schweitzer-Mauduit and China Tobacco is excluded)
