About this Report

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Local tobacco producers fear for their crops

The newly elected president Danilo Medina announced his on-going efforts to implement a new fiscal plan that would translate in a tax rate increase across multiple sectors, effective 1 January 2013. Local tobacco producers raised their concerns with officials that an increase in tax rates would imply a significant hit in the levels of consumption, resulting in the loss of jobs for many farmers who depend on the work in the tobacco fields; a situation that occurred when tax rates were raised for this industry in 2007. In response, the government reassured producers of its commitment to stimulate and develop the tobacco fields, and delivered 875 quintals of fertiliser and plague-control pumps.

Cigarette sales decline at much slower rate

Cigarette sales declined at a slower rate of 3% in volume terms in 2012. The category has been greatly affected since 2007 when the government implemented a fiscal plan that elevated tax rates, which was later corrected due to the consequences on the consumption levels of tobacco and its derivatives. Taking advantage of this fiscal law, illicit trade of cigarettes penetrated the country and further disrupted the consumption patterns of this category, as consumers were seduced by lower-priced offerings. However, as more middle- and high-income consumers engage in hectic lifestyles and are exposed to higher levels of stress, the consumption of stress relievers, such as cigarettes, will increase, so sales within this market are expected to begin to stabilise during the forecast period.

Philip Morris Dominicana SA supports local production

Philip Morris Dominicana SA, the market leader within cigarettes in the Dominican Republic, sustains a commitment with local producers by being the sole buyer of Burley tobacco grown in the territory. The company has also committed to help producers improve the quality of their crops. The company invests in extending technical workshops to local producers and updates them on latest trends.

Cigarettes popularly consumed in small independent grocers

Small independent grocers, also known as colmados, usually have a dual use within this market, as they can function as both an off-trade and an on-trade channel, facilitating tables and chairs to accommodate lower-income consumers, as they gather with friends and family and consume alcoholic drinks and cigarettes while catching up on current events or playing a game of dominos. Middle-income locals also tend to purchase cigarettes from small independent grocers, as these are widespread in the territory; however, this group tends to consume their purchases elsewhere.

Stable performance expected over the forecast period

While cigar consumption is set to show continued and healthy expansion driven mainly from tourism, flat domestic cigarette volume growth over the forecast period is expected. As the government engages in a fiscal recovery plan, further threats to the market are expected to impact luxury/recreational markets such as cigarettes.
