DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “North America Cannabis Market: Focus on Product Type, Medical Application, Distribution Channel, Countries Data (U.S. and Canada) and Competitive Landscape – Analysis and Forecast, 2019-2025” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
The North America cannabis market was valued at $13.21 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach $36.7 billion in 2025
High demand among consumers for safer forms of ingesting cannabis such as tinctures, oils, vapes, and other edibles, coupled with rising investment from both public and private sectors for research and development activities are all together expected to positively reinforce the growth of the market during the forecast period between 2019 and 2025.
Increasing legalization of cannabis in both Canada and U.S. is the most prominent factor contributing to the growth of the North America cannabis market. North America holds the strongest potential among all other regions of the world for the growth of the cannabis industry and offers lucrative opportunities for the entry of new companies into the market.
As the countries of North America begin to liberalize laws related to the recreational and medical use of cannabis, more companies are expected to enter into this market in order to address the surging demand for cannabis products. High public and private investments in this sector are further propelling research related to cannabis products, actively driving the growth of the market.
However, the market is also witnessing significant challenges that hinders its growth. Although cannabis is legal in the countries of North America for both medical and recreational use, its cultivation, production, distribution, and possession are highly controlled under strict regulations.
Moreover, the risk of side effects associated with the use of cannabis hampers its adoption rate, thereby hampering the growth of the market. However, with progressing research activities, safer forms of cannabis products are expected to come up in the market in the upcoming years that offer prospects for the market growth in the years to come.
Furthermore, increasing launch of online platforms promoting cannabis products and the paradigm shift toward e-commerce sales of cannabis offer huge opportunities that are expected to drive the growth of the North America cannabis market during the forecast period between 2019 and 2025.
