"KT&G will secure leadership in the future tobacco business by developing responsible products, launch innovative platforms, and strengthening R&D capability.”
(KT&G Report, Bok-in Baek, CEO, 2020).
KT&G’s Product Sales category score declined as its Volume Sales of cigarettes increased at the highest rate in 2019-2021 (CAGR: +6.8%) compared to other Index Companies. Its cigarette exports grew faster than its domestic sales.
KT&G’s heated tobacco Volume Sales also increased following a distribution deal with PMI in January 2020, offsetting in part the cigarette volume growth.
KT&G’s Strategy and Management category score increased as KT&G clarified its objectives related to tobacco harm reduction (“become a global top tier NGP player by 2025”).
