An overview of the global cannabis market
According to a report by Markets and Markets, the global cannabis market was worth $22.5 billion in 2021. It is expected to reach a valuation of $82.3 billion by 2027, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 24.3% from 2022 to 2026.
This growth is expected to be driven largely by the acceptance of marijuana for medical and recreational use, the legalization of cannabis, and investments in R&D to make cannabis production and consumption more environmentally friendly and user-friendly.
Legalization and decriminalization of cannabis in many countries is one of the main drivers of growth. More countries relax their laws, increasing users, as well as the number of companies that can operate legally and provide cannabis-based products and services.
