New Market Research Report: Smokeless Tobacco in Belarus

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Aug 26 2015

There is virtually no tradition of smokeless tobacco consumption in Belarus. Consumers are even less aware of smokeless tobacco than they are of smoking tobacco. The product only appeared in the country in 2007 and at the end of the review period there was only one product type available, dry snuff. Overall, just 170kg of this product was sold in Belarus during 2014.

Competitive Landscape

All of the smokeless tobacco products available in Belarus are imported and there are no companies involved in the domestic manufacture of these products. Since 1 January 2008, when the rules for tobacco imports were changed, all tobacco imports in Belarus have been carried out via just one State-owned company, Belarustorg RUE. The private company DelfiDealing was previously involved in both the importation and wholesale distribution of tobacco; however, since January 2008, this company has been involved strictly in the distribution of tobacco in Belarus.

Industry Prospects

Smokeless tobacco is expected to decline in volume at a CAGR of 1% over the forecast period, while value sales are expected to increase at a CAGR of 1% at constant 2014 prices. However, if excise tax increases are not implemented for smokeless tobacco as they were during the review period, the zero excise duty these products attract gives hope for potential volume growth over the medium-term as consumers will inevitably become more aware about these products. Because smokeless tobacco is a relatively unknown product in Belarus, maintaining the lowest level of consumer awareness of any tobacco product, volume growth in the category is likely to be hampered during the forecast period.
