About this Report

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Tobacco maintains steady growth in 2012

  • The tobacco industry has been negatively impacted since Romania’s integration into the European Union. However, the industry saw an improved performance in both volume and value terms in 2012. Despite rising taxes, increasingly stringent regulations and the gloomy economic climate, 2012 proved to be a good year for cigarette manufacturers as they launched new products, redesigned existing packaging and introduced new packaging. Innovation was one of the main factors that contributed to the successful year for the main players which managed to attract more customers.

Growing health concerns contribute to a greater usage of electronic cigarettes

Electronic cigarettes, seen by many as a healthy alternative to tobacco smoking, developed further in 2012. In the 21st century, people have come to care more about their health and wellbeing, therefore, the idea of less-harmful smoking devices began to emerge rapidly among the country’s population. The category size of these devices is, however, still negligible, as most of the products are sold via the internet. However, these products are expected to increase in volume sales in the forecast period as they have started to be seen as an alternative to quitting smoking.

Sales continue to be dominated by the limited number of players

The Romanian cigarettes category is dominated almost entirely, both in volume and value terms, by three leading players - British American Tobacco, JT International, and Philip Morris. The remaining share is divided among other smaller local players.

Small independent grocers remains the leading channel

The leading distribution channel in Romania remained independent small grocers followed by newsagents/tobacconists and convenience stores. As cigarettes retail at the same price no matter what the channel, consumers to purchase these products from their nearest outlet.

Illicit trade decreases in 2011 and 2012

The illicit trade declined sharply in the last two years of the review period. This diminution of total illegal trade was due to the concerted efforts of the legislative authorities, as well as the effective collaboration between governmental institutions and the tobacco industry. At the same time, the reduced smuggling increased the revenues to the state budget collected by the government in 2012.
