Cigarettes in Brazil - New Market Study Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Sun Aug 23 2015

The average unit price of cigarettes increased by 12% in current terms in 2015, a rate of growth which contributed to the negative volume sales recorded in the category over the course of the year. Cigarettes are subject to high levels of taxation in Brazil, which continues to have an inflationary effect on the retail selling prices of cigarettes. As a result, many Brazilian smokers are reducing the number of cigarettes that they smoke on a daily basis as a consequence of elevated prices or, alternatively, switching to illegal cigarettes, which are much cheaper.

Competitive Landscape

The Brazilian tobacco industry is effectively a duopoly in which sales are concentrated largely between Souza Cruz (British American Tobacco) and Philip Morris Brasil, with these two companies accounting for 94% of total cigarettes retail volume sales in 2014. Consequently, multinational companies lead sales of cigarettes in Brazil.
