About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Due to the lack of a cigar tradition in the country, exclusive Cuban high-end products and locally manufactured alternatives (which are offered at significantly lower prices) are mainly targeted at the large number of tourists who visit the country every year. Cuban tobacco commercialisation has gained relevance following US restrictions on the acquisition of Cuban products, thus making Costa Rica a very attractive destination not only because of its tourist attractions but also its proximity and product availability.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Cruz Canela & Trust GB SA remained the leading player in Cuban cigars in Costa Rica in 2013, accounting for a 33% share of retail volume sales. This distributor benefits from being the exclusive representative of the most recognised and traditional Cuban cigar brands available in the country (which include Cohiba, Montecristo, Romeo y Julieta and Partagás), although the vast amount of Cuban cigar imitations which are commonly found in food/drink/tobacco specialists make it difficult to estimate its real share.

PROSPECTS

  • Forecast trends are anticipated to develop in line with the premiumisation of locally-manufactured products, with the most important players looking to reach promising foreign markets such as the US and Europe, while the most sophisticated consumers and distributors will keep looking for tailored products. In the case of Cuban cigars, manufacturers and leading distributors are expected to continue to focus on differentiation, such as store authentication labels, exclusive launches and limited editions, while continuing to add value through high-quality packaging (collectable boxes) and ongoing improvements regarding the origin national warranty seal for cigars and cut tobacco. On the other hand, machine-manufactured cigars could see further dynamism over the forecast period, reaching new consumer groups.
