About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • In Norway, RYO tobacco was actually the preferred tobacco from the 1960s all the way to the late-90s, when cigarettes captured the smoking throne. In 1974-75, per capita consumption was 1.3kg; about 10 times that of 2013. As late as 1999, Norway had the third highest consumption in Western Europe with more than 0.5kg per capita. Norway was actually one of the few countries were RYO got so popular, which was related to a lower tax rate than machine-fabricated cigarettes, which actually lasted to 2004; the solace tobacco for the Norwegian working class. The standardisation of excise taxes in 2004 across all the different smoking tobacco types, combined with prohibition of smoking in on-trade facilities, which was implemented in 2004, broke the back of RYO smoking and volume sales dropped by 35% from 2003 to 2004. The excise tax increase of nearly 50% in 2004 made smokers migrate to cigarettes and snus or made them smoke less.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • The mains players on the Norwegian market were Philip Morris Norway AS and British American Tobacco Norway AS with volume shares of 71% and 16%, respectively, with the latter acting as the marketing agent for Scandinavian Tobacco Group A/S.

PROSPECTS

  • It is expected that pipe tobacco will see a moderate volume CAGR of 1% over the forecast period. Euromonitor International does not expect a heavy influx of new pipe tobacco enthusiasts to this category; as smoking is still considered to be a moral flaw. However, a handful of people are expected to be attracted to this category during the forecast period.
