Cigars in Ireland - New Market Study Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Thu Aug 21 2014

Category volume sales declined by 5% in 2013. There is no great tradition for cigar smoking in Ireland, which tends to be mainly seen on special occasions. The ban on smoking in public places in 2004 had a severe impact on cigar sales. Traditionally, cigars were smoked in restaurants after meals. However, the ban on smoking meant this was no longer possible. In addition, unlike cigarettes, cigars take a longer amount of time to smoke, and with the often inclement Irish weather, few have the patience to sit outside in the wet or cold to smoke a cigar.

Competitive Landscape

In 2013, there were five main players in cigars in Ireland - Gallaher (Dublin) Ltd, John Player & Sons, Ampersand, Hunters & Frankau Ltd and P J Carroll & Co. Together, they accounted for a 73% share of volume sales.
