"Cigarettes in Switzerland" Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Jul 28 2014

The smoking ban in public places and the strict tobacco legislation made it much harder and more uncomfortable for smokers. The anti-smoking campaigns run by the government, the medical establishment and lobby groups raised awareness of the health risks involved in smoking, and also created a social stigma, as nowadays Swiss people regard it less classy to smoke in public places. Smoking being linked to premature ageing was also a strong message for youngsters. Whilst some gave up smoking altogether, many reduced the number of cigarettes they smoked. Consequently, retail volume sales of cigarettes dropped significantly in 2013.

Competitive Landscape

Cigarettes in Switzerland was dominated by the three leading multinationals in 2013: Philip Morris (PM) with a volume share of 41%, British American Tobacco (BAT) with a 35% share and Japan Tobacco International (JTI) with a 15% share. These multinationals expanded their product and brand ranges in order to create buoyancy in the market, which is suffering massively under strict legislation. This helped in their share growth and in the growth of their premium brands.

Industry Prospects

The smoking ban and anti-smoking campaigns are expected to raise a high level of awareness amongst the population about the detrimental effects of smoking in the forecast period. In particular, the further tightening of tobacco legislation in neighbouring EU countries will also impact Switzerland and its legislation. Although the details are not known as yet, the Swiss government is planning to introduce new legislation in 2014. Consequently, retail volume sales of cigarettes are expected to fall by 19% in the next five years.
