About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Retail volume sales of cigarettes continued to decline in 2012, registering a 4% drop. This maintained the downward trend witnessed in 2009, when volumes decreased by 9%, due to historic increases in tobacco taxation. The Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 (CHIPRA) increased the federal excise tax on cigarettes to fund the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). The federal excise tax increased from US$0.39 to US$1.01 per pack of 20 cigarettes in April 2009, prompting the sharpest decline yet felt in the industry as consumers sought alternative forms of tobacco or quit smoking altogether. In addition, numerous States and municipalities adopted additional cigarette taxes, such as Illinois, which more than doubled its tax rate on cigarettes in 2012, raising it from US$0.98 to US$1.98.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • The US cigarette industry is highly consolidated, with the top three players accounting for a combined retail volume share of 87% in 2012. Philip Morris was the clear leader with a category volume share of 47%, followed by RJ Reynolds with 27% and Lorillard with 13%. Some analysts have argued that FDA regulation and increased federal restrictions have given Philip Morris a competitive advantage as the company has the largest marketing and advertising budget in the industry. In August 2009, both Lorillard and RJ Reynolds sued to block the marketing restrictions that the FDA had put in place earlier in the year. This case was settled in March 2012 with a majority of the FDA regulations being upheld.

PROSPECTS

  • Retail volume sales of cigarettes are expected to continue to decline and post a negative CAGR of 2% over the forecast period. Cigarettes have historically been dubbed “recession proof”, or at least “recession resistant”, as a portion of the population is expected to continue smoking regardless of the cost or the economic outlook. However, due to the health risks involved with smoking and the added efforts of associations, such as the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids and the American Lung Association, to educate the public about the harmful effects of tobacco use, volume sales are expected to continue declining. In addition, further tobacco tax increases at federal and State level, along with smoking bans, will pose even greater obstacles to growth over the forecast period. Retail value sales are forecast to grow at a CAGR of 1% between 2012 and 2017, reaching US$93.7 billion at constant 2012 prices.
