About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Cigar smoking, and also to some extent smoking of cigarillos, is connected to the urban lifestyle. Moreover, cigars are considered luxury items. Whilst previously cigars and cigarillos were considered a perfect way to end a restaurant or festive meal, in 2007 when the indoor smoking ban was enforced, quicker-to-smoke cigarillos gathered popularity as they could be more easily and quickly smoked outdoors in the changeable and cold Nordic climate.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • The cigar sales in Finland were dominated by the three biggest players. Swedish Match AB managed to maintain its lead by holding 37% volume share in 2012. The company’s position was strong due to marketing the popular cigarillo brands Hofnar, Meester Henk, Van Kemp, Sigge and Meester Hans. The company was not competing in the cigars excluding cigarillos category. Imperial Tobacco Finland Oy and British American Tobacco Finland Oy followed in the second and third leading position in cigars with 34% and 23% volume shares respectively. These companies also owed their positions to their cigarillo brands. Only companies active in the cigarillos category were able to reach leading positions whilst companies present in cigars excluding cigarillos were left with smaller shares. This is mainly because cigarillos dominate category sales and because cigarillos, unlike cigars, are also distributed via grocery retailers whilst cigars sales are concentrated in tobacco specialists. Corporación Habanos SA held 3% overall share in cigars. However, the company was the leader in cigars excluding cigarillos with 50% volume share in 2012.

PROSPECTS

  • Cigars is expected to grow by 3% volume and 4% constant value CAGRs over the forecast period, reaching €131 million for 150 million sticks in 2017. Cigars and cigarillos are viewed as better-quality products made of quality tobacco. The volume growth will result from more consumers trying out cigars and cigarillos and their different blends and flavours. The value growth will exceed the volume growth as taxes are still probable to be increased in the forecast period and consumers also are probable to try out more premium cigars.
