Smoking Tobacco in Ukraine - New Study Released

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Thu Aug 27 2015

During Soviet times, RYO tobacco was purchased as a cheap alternative to cigarettes. Smokers could buy RYO tobacco as well as paper for making cigarettes. However, newspaper was more widely used instead of special RYO paper to save money. RYO tobacco appealed to old men who enjoyed smoking strong tobacco. Following the entry of multinationals in cigarettes, RYO tobacco was particularly badly hit. Smokers increasingly opted for industrially manufactured cigarettes (those who preferred strong tobacco opted for unfiltered varieties) and RYO tobacco started to quickly disappear from stores. At the end of the review period RYO tobacco could not boast a wide consumer base, thus becoming a niche product in Ukraine.

Competitive Landscape

Domestic companies do not produce smoking tobacco. All products are imported. Mac Baren Tobacco Co A/S maintained its leadership of smoking tobacco in 2014 with a 43% volume share, followed by Al Fakher Corp (13%) and Von Eicken GmbH (9%). The shares of the remaining players were impacted by the erratic distribution of their smoking tobacco products.

Industry Prospects

Over the forecast period smoking tobacco is expected to register a value CAGR decline of 3% at constant 2014 prices and a volume CAGR decline of 5%. The main reasons for this performance will be the still underdeveloped RYO and pipe tobacco-smoking culture and a relatively narrow consumer base. All smoking tobacco products are more expensive than premium cigarettes, this being the main obstacle to any consumer migration to smoking tobacco from cigarettes. Hence, there will be little incentive for manufacturers to offer new value-added products.
