The world is facing the worst-ever global tobacco epidemic, according to a report from the United Nations that has warned of a tobacco crisis that could last for decades.
A report by the United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said the global tobacco trade is worth $1.4 trillion a year and is projected to increase by almost 60 percent by 2030.
The FAO report said that while there is no question that tobacco use in the world has increased since the mid-1970s, the situation is still dire.
In 2030, the FAO predicts that the global population will grow to nearly 9 billion people, which is more than the world’s population of Australia, New Zealand and the United States combined.
Nearly half of these people will be aged between 15 and 24.
According to the FAo, tobacco use is a major factor in more than half of all cases of cancer in adults, and in more young people.
Although it is still not fully known how the tobacco industry will react to the report, many companies are looking for ways to reduce their costs.
“As the tobacco epidemic has become a major public health issue, tobacco companies have been working to lower their costs,” said Dr Daniel Cavanagh, a professor of public health at the University of Sydney.
Cavans research on the tobacco market has found that the tobacco companies are focusing on reducing costs.
“The main objective is to reduce the price of cigarettes so that the industry can compete on a more level playing field.
That means reducing the price and increasing supply,” he said.
As part of the plan, the tobacco company is trying to make it more difficult for countries to regulate tobacco.
However, it is also trying to cut the number of cigarettes a person can buy per year, Cavanag said.
“They are trying to limit that to two packs a day.
That’s why they are increasing the price so that if they reduce the number by 10 packs a week, that will reduce the overall amount they are producing,” he added.
It is estimated that about 70 percent of the world population is exposed to tobacco, but the WHO says the global number of smokers is expected to increase from one billion to one billion by 2030, as more people start smoking.
Experts warn that governments will not be able to prevent the global epidemic, but they will be able reduce the amount of tobacco consumed and help smokers quit.
Health officials estimate that 80 million smokers worldwide are living with tobacco use.
WHO estimates that one cigarette is the equivalent of three and a half cigarettes, and that the smoking prevalence in Australia is one in eight people.
“A small percentage of the tobacco users in Australia are smokers and the vast majority of them are not,” said the report.
But while governments are working to reduce tobacco use, tobacco industry is continuing to boost profits.
Its revenue rose by over $2 billion in the year to December, from $8 billion in 2013, according the report from FAO.
This is despite a global recession, falling cigarette taxes, and the growing popularity of e-cigarettes and vaping.
Some of the companies are also boosting the production of their cigarettes to help reduce the costs of their products.
The report said the industry has become so profitable that it now has more revenue from the sale of cigarettes than from tobacco.
The FAo said there were more than 5,000 cigarette retailers in China alone, and about $6 billion in revenue from sales in Europe, North America, and Japan.
China is the world leader in tobacco consumption with more than 80 million people smoking daily.
Many of the countries that are now the top markets for tobacco products are in Europe.
Australia is the biggest market for tobacco, followed by Britain, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Japan, Mexico, and Spain.
Meanwhile, the EU is expected the world to see more than 200 million e-cigarette users by 2025.
Tobacco is a leading cause of preventable death and disability globally.
The FAO said that tobacco companies had failed to take action to stop the epidemic.
There were just under 7.2 million deaths from smoking in 2015, and almost 3.2 billion people around the world were exposed to smoke.
Almost all the tobacco smokers in the United Kingdom are now switching to e-cigs.
Around 30 million people around Europe smoke.
