New Study: Cigars in Egypt

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Aug 24 2015

Cigars were also affected by a significant increase in taxation towards the middle of the review period, causing unit prices to surge and retail volume sales to decline. Following steady growth during the early years of the review period, retail volume sales declined in 2011 and 2012, mostly due to falling demand for standard cigars, the most prevalent format in Egypt.

Competitive Landscape

As in cigarettes, Eastern Co also has a monopoly on domestically manufactured cigars in Egypt. In 2014, the company held a volume share of 64% in cigars excluding cigarillos, up by a further percentage point on the previous year. Its two key brands are José Bartolo and Verona. Eastern Co also led cigarillos in 2014 with a retail volume share of 73%.

Industry Prospects

Cigars are expected to remain niche products within tobacco in Egypt due to the category’s limited consumer base. Volume sales are set to stagnate as manufacturers will fail to attract new consumers in light of the challenging economic conditions in the country and price rises. Furthermore, cigars will be constrained by the fact that the main consumer base mostly buys cigars outside Egypt or via duty free, which offers a wider selection at much better prices.
