About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • RYO tobacco is traditionally popular among male smokers from lower-income groups. Usually, smokers choose RYO tobacco because of its taste, as well as the fact that it is perceived as more natural than cigarettes as it contains fewer chemicals. However, in recent years, the profile of RYO tobacco smokers has changed as the French market has seen new consumers enter, including those who have switched from cigarettes to RYO tobacco due to the lower pricing. Furthermore, some new young smokers tend to go directly to RYO tobacco due to its low price. Consumers of pipe tobacco are usually male smokers from older generations. As the habit is generally considered old-fashioned, pipe tobacco is struggling to recruit new consumers in France.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • The leading company was JT International, which acquired Gryson in 2012. Thanks to this acquisition the group held a 32% volume share in 2012.

PROSPECTS

  • Smoking tobacco is the least heavily taxed tobacco category in France. Even with the introduction in July 2013 of a €0.60 price rise, the situation will not change dramatically. Over the forecast period smoking tobacco is likely to grow at a faster pace than over the review period, posting a volume CAGR of 3% as RYO consumers will continue to purchase RYO tobacco while cigarette smokers will increasingly migrate to the category.
