Reasons for Using Heated Tobacco Products among South Korean Adults
Abstract
Background: This study assessed the reasons for using heated tobacco products (HTPs) among
South Korean adults according to demographic and socioeconomic factors.
Methods: An online panel survey was conducted from November 3 to 9, 2018, including
7,000 adults (4,700 females, 2,300 males) from 70,000 age-, sex-, and provincial-distributionmatched individuals, based on the 2018 national population statistics. Females were
oversampled because their tobacco use prevalence was low. The reasons for using HTPs were
investigated and ranked according to age, sex, education level, monthly income, and current
HTP usage status. Descriptive statistics were then presented as unweighted numbers and
weighted percentages.
Results: Of the 7,000 participants, 944 (16.8%) were ever HTP users. The most common
reasons for using HTPs among ever HTP users were as follows: “no ash is formed (74.8%)” and
“it has less odor than conventional cigarettes (71.9%).” Current HTP users responded with
higher percentages for all the reasons, compared to former HTP users. HTP having “less odor
than conventional cigarettes” was the most important reason for younger smokers (20-34 years
old) compared with those of other age groups. No significant differences were observed in the
order of reasons for HTP use between males and females. People with higher education used
HTPs to “reduce conventional cigarette use” (41.4% vs. 30.9%), and people with higher
income (over monthly income of 7000K won) used HTPs as it produced “less odor than
conventional cigarettes” (77.2%).
Conclusion: In South Korea, the most important reason for HTP use among current HTP users
is the absence of ash and odor.
