Recent Study: Cigars in Algeria

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Nov 21 2014

There is no tradition for cigar and cigarillo smoking in Algeria, with smokers preferring cigarettes and smokeless tobacco. The presence of cigars is limited to the domestic production of two brands, Targui and Rumel, from state-owned company SNTA, whose production declined over the review period. It is present mainly in the Kabylie region, with production usually carried out to order only. The few consumers who enjoy cigars tend to buy them abroad and choose good quality offerings as domestic production is of a low standard.

Competitive Landscape

In 2013, Société Nationale des Tabacs et Allumettes (SNTA) remained the only company present with legal cigar brands in Algeria and therefore held a 100% volume share. However, the company is seeing its volume sales continuously fall as demand is declining. Hence, it is producing cigars to order. Nevertheless, a variety of cigar and cigarillo brands can be found in retailers, these being imported and sold illegally.

Industry Prospects

Cigars is expected to record CAGR declines of 3% in both retail volume and value terms at constant 2013 prices over the forecast period. Cigar smoking is expected to continue to decline as cigarettes will increasingly take over from other tobacco products. Moreover, apart from the two legal brands Targui and Rumel from SNTA, other players are not expected to introduce new products to boost category sales.
