About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • In France, cigars and cigarillos are usually consumed after a meal or during social gatherings among friends. Traditionally, the majority of smokers of cigars and cigarillos in France are older males. While cigars tend to be consumed on special occasions, such as at family reunions and weddings, the smaller size of cigarillos allows consumers to smoke them during a short break, something that has become more important since the smoking ban. The average per capita consumption of cigars and cigarillos in France ranks above the European average, at almost 23 units per person per year.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • In 2012, the overall cigars category in France remained rather concentrated due to a merger between Swedish Match and Scandinavian Tobacco Group, with the new entity Scandinavian Tobacco accounting for 31% of cigar volume sales in 2012. Its leading position stemmed from the good performance of its key Café Crème and La Paz brands, which held volume shares of 15% and 9%, respectively. Altadis ranked second in the cigars category in 2012. Its main brands (Ninas, Fleur de Savane and Havanitos) showed a stable performance.

PROSPECTS

  • Sales of cigars and cigarillos in France are expected to continue to decline in retail volume terms over the forecast period by a CAGR of 1% due to the gloomy economic environment as well as declining purchasing power. Cigar smokers are likely to buy economy products or cigarillos in order to save money. That said, some cigar aficionados are likely to continue to buy premium cigars and limited editions, but less frequently than before.
