Cigars in the United Kingdom - New Market Report

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

Cigar culture in the UK has changed drastically in the past decade, with the volume of large cigars sold dropping by over 40% since 2007 alone, and declining twice as fast as cigarillos. Cigarillos account for 47% of the UK cigar market in terms of volume sales, and have been referred to by key industry players as cost-effective alternatives to cigars. The demographic of the audience who smoke cigars and/or cigarillos is considered to also be changing, with a growing interest from a younger audience, averaging between 30-50-years-old. Particularly with cigarillos, their less-specialist nature than handmade cigars and vast availability in the majority of large supermarket tobacco kiosks has meant that they have received more exposure to a wider market, alongside cigarettes and RYO tobacco.

Competitive Landscape

The leading player in cigars in the UK in 2014, in terms of volume, is Henri Wintermans Cigars UK Ltd, with its brand Café Créme, accounting for a majority share of 28% in 2014.

Industry Prospects

During the forecast period of 2014-2019, a negative volume CAGR of 4% is predicted, which is consistent with the decline of cigars and cigarillos in previous years. The factor that is thought to have been behind this trend is the introduction of the UK indoor smoking ban in 2007, with further stricter legislation on the tobacco industry likely to be enforced in the coming years.
