Nowadays, the deepening globalization of the world economy promotes the economic development to present more and more obvious regionalization characteristics, and industrial clusters are increasingly becoming an important source for a country or region to achieve competitive advantages. China is the largest tobacco country in the world, and the tobacco industry is the largest source of tax revenue in China, which has made outstanding contributions to the national financial accumulation. After joining the World Trade Organization (WTO) and signing the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) of the World Health Organization (WHO), the competition in the domestic and foreign tobacco markets has become increasingly fierce, and more attention to health issues has put forward higher requirements for the development of China's tobacco industry. Therefore, the Chinese tobacco industry urgently needs to use industrial clusters to form economies of scale and enhance market competitiveness. Overall, the development level of China's tobacco industry is not high. Due to some existing problems that restrict the development of tobacco industry clusters, some measures must be taken to enhance the competitiveness of China's tobacco industry clusters in the world economy, such as strengthening overall coordination and planning guidance, guiding industries from agglomeration to cluster development, actively supporting related industries, and vigorously enhancing innovation ability. Therefore, it is necessary to find out the breakthrough point of the development of tobacco industry clusters, select the appropriate industrial clusters to focus on cultivating, strengthening the leading role, supplementing the chain and clustering, and guide and promote the healthy growth of tobacco industry clusters, so as to stimulate the growth of the national economy.
