About this Report

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Cigarette sales continue to decline

In 2014, tobacco manufacturers continued to see a decline in sales of cigarettes and Asian-style chewing tobacco. While cigars was the only category to record positive growth, it remained popular only among a very small and affluent consumer group.

Stricter regulations and increased taxation impact tobacco sales

Most tobacco products, including cigarettes and Asian-style chewing tobacco, were significantly impacted in 2014 by stricter government regulations. Furthermore, cigarette sales were hit by two consecutive hikes in excise duty within the same year. As a result, manufacturers started to tap into opportunities offered by the smaller 64mm format, which is popular among price-sensitive cigarette smokers.

Tobacco remains a duopoly

Tobacco largely remained a duopoly in India in 2014, with the two leading manufacturers ITC Ltd and Godfrey Phillips India Ltd (GPI) generally maintaining their volume shares thanks to their longstanding presence in the country. Both, however, struggled to maintain their sales, registering a similar volume decline.

Newsagent-tobacconists/kiosks remains the leading distribution channel

Newsagent-tobacconists/kiosks remained the leading distribution channel for tobacco products such as cigarettes and Asian-style chewing tobacco. This channel is preferred mainly due to the widespread presence of such outlets throughout the country.

Bleak prospects for tobacco over the forecast period

Most tobacco products are likely to record a decline in sales over the forecast period. This will be largely due to the implementation of stricter anti-tobacco measures, such as a ban on the sale of single cigarettes and an increase in the minimum legal age for smoking. Some of these measures have as yet only been proposed but the government is likely to make it more difficult for tobacco manufacturers to achieve an increase in sales.
