As consumers become more health-conscious, industry players can expect to see declining demand for their tobacco products, with volume sales of cigars, cigarillos and pipe tobacco all expected to be falling over the forecast period, although fine cut tobacco, as a low-cost alternative to other traditional tobacco products, is expected to be an exception to this, recording positive volume growth in the coming years.
The proposed revisions in the Tobacco Products and Electronic Delivery Systems Control Bill will place major restrictions on designated smoking areas, prohibiting smoking in public and enclosed areas – extending to social environments such as pubs, bars and workplaces – as well as banning the advertisement of tobacco products. Fines will be imposed on consumers and suppliers who violate the new regulations.
New locally-made brands originating from Mozambique and South Africa, offering premium luxury cigars at affordable prices could enjoy some success given the leading international brands Cohiba and Romeo y Julieta, locally distributed by The Cigar Co Pty Ltd for Corporación Habanos SA, and accounting for around a third of cigar retail volume sales in 2022, are priced well above the reach of most local consumers. This could therefore encourage further growth in the presence of such smaller brands offering locally-sourced products.
