Published: Tue Aug 25 2015

Volume sales of smoking tobacco in the Netherlands increased by 1% during 2014, bringing an end to five years of consistent volume declines in the category. Sales in the category are being influenced by strong price increases and the general trend towards healthy living habits, which is encouraging more smokers to consider quitting their tobacco habits. Whilst the Dutch government has focused on increasing the excise duties on cigarettes, it has consistently stated that smoking tobacco is also likely to see further tax increases, a factor which is likely to generate further unit price increases in the category.

Competitive Landscape

Imperial Tobacco Netherlands remained the largest manufacturer in smoking tobacco in 2014, accounting for 35% of total volume sales. The manufacturer distributes some of the top selling RYO tobacco brands and benefits from the long established presence of brand such as Drum and Van Nelle. The company’s value share has been under pressure in recent years due to increased levels of competition from economy brands and private label as some Dutch smokers are shifting towards cheaper brands in face of rising unit prices.

Industry Prospects

RYO tobacco is expected to post further volume declines over the forecast period, with demand affected by the stronger pressure to curb tobacco consumption, with further excise duties likely to be applied, as with cigarettes. The rising unit prices of cigarettes could, however, benefit sales of smoking tobacco in the short terms in the form of a shift towards RYO tobacco, although this is likely to be a temporary situation as the Dutch government is also willing to make smoking tobacco less affordable. Unit prices are thus expected to grow, encouraging more consumers to consider quitting smoking RYO tobacco as well.
