About this Report

Executive Summary


  • Traditionally, Nigerians did not smoke cigars, except those who had travelled abroad, so sales within the country were insignificant. With the increase in the number of Nigerians travelling to Europe and North America, many of whom settle down but then return home later, cigar smoking in Nigeria has begun to increase. The expatriate population in Nigeria, which increases yearly due to the oil industry and growth in construction, is also a key consumer base for cigars.


  • Altadis USA dominated cigars in Nigeria in 2014, with a 62% volume share. This is because the company owns the brands that have become popular in the last two years through wider distribution and visibility – Phillies and Hav-a-Tampa in particular. Such brands are available not just through store-based channels such as supermarkets and independent small grocers, but are also found in kiosks, street/traffic channels and bars/clubs.


  • Over the forecast period cigars is expected to increase by a retail volume CAGR of 15%. Growth will be boosted by rising westernisation through exposure to American culture, wider brand visibility and consumers being willing to try novel products and the different flavours offered in cigars.
