New Report Available: Smoking Tobacco in Estonia

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Aug 22 2014

Pipe tobacco is primarily used by elderly male consumers in Estonia who continue to follow tradition. Among younger smokers, however, it is very rarely used although the occurrence of hipster culture marginally improved the number of younger pipe smokers. RYO tobacco is generally used by male smokers as well. However, this is commonly consumed by younger or middle-aged price-sensitive Estonians who seek an alternative for cigarettes. In addition, due to wide flavour range, RYO tobacco is appealing to consumers (even female) who prefer flavoured tobacco products.

Competitive Landscape

Full Report Details at

Several players are present in Estonian smoking tobacco, with the category being dominantly led by Imperial Tobacco Estonia OU. The company accounted for a retail volume share of 40% in 2013. Imperial Tobacco Estonia OU offers a fairly wide range of popular RYO tobacco products under Route 66, Paramount and Drum brands. The following players were Mac Baren Tobacco Co A/S and Orlik Tobacco Co A/S, both with retail volume share of 13% in 2013. No exclusive distribution rights occurred for smoking tobacco players in Estonia.

Industry Prospects

Smoking tobacco will face maturity and loss in consumption over the forecast period. Attractiveness of the category is expected to continually diminish over the years as expected economic growth and higher disposable incomes will shift some consumers of pipe and RYO tobacco to other tobacco products. Still, the loss in consumer base would not be very notable while variously from cigarettes, tobacco excise rates on smoking tobacco remains the same in 2014 as in 2013. In the long-term, a notable hit on sales would be the proposed restriction of the sales of flavoured tobacco. However, this would not enter into force before 2020.
