"Smokeless Tobacco in Nigeria" is now available at Fast Market Research

Smokeless tobacco, particularly nasal snuff, has been used for a long time in Nigeria, although usually in unpackaged, unbranded format. Its use is generally prevalent amongst elderly people in rural areas, even before the advent of colonialism (as fictionalised in Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart). In branded, packaged, format, however, smokeless tobacco has traditionally had negligible sales in Nigeria.

Competitive Landscape

There are only two players present in smokeless tobacco in Nigeria - Joseph & Henry Wilson and West African Tobacco Co, both of which market only dry snuff. Joseph & Henry Wilson led in 2013 with a 54% volume share, thanks to the longer presence in the market of its J&H Wilson brand.

Industry Prospects

Over the forecast period smokeless tobacco is expected to post a volume CAGR of 5%, which is weaker than the review period CAGR of 9%. With products having been launched in this category only in 2008, it is inevitable that growth will hit a peak and stabilise. There are still many new consumers who would be interested in trying a novel tobacco product, which acts as a stimulant but does not come with the dangers of cigarette or cigar smoking. However, over the long term it is hard to say how well smokeless tobacco will perform, as the cost of marketing may outweigh potential sales, thereby potentially forcing manufacturers to withdraw.
