Other chewing tobacco is the only type of smokeless tobacco available in Venezuela, with snuff not being manufactured or consumed in the country. Other chewing tobacco is known as chimó, a tobacco paste made from tobacco leaves which are boiled, with the addition of products such as baking soda and sugar, until the mixture develops a consistency similar to that of caramel. The custom of chewing chimó has remained through the years, extending from the most remote areas of the country to the main cities, where high school and college students have started to chew chimó as a fashion trend.

Competitive Landscape

Fábrica de Chimó El Tigrito was the leading player in smokeless tobacco in 2014, holding a 65% volume share, due to the performance of its brand El Tigrito. Unlike most of the companies involved in chimó, Fábrica de Chimó El Tigrito does not purely operate at a regional level; El Tigrito can be found in all the major cities in Venezuela. The balance of sales of smokeless tobacco is divided amongst a large number of players which compete regionally.

Industry Prospects

Smokeless tobacco is projected to remain a very stable category, with no major factors expected to boost demand in the coming years. The fact that chimó is made in a very artisanal way indicates that manufacturers have little possibility for expansion, and little incentive to increase awareness. Over the forecast period the emergence of other types of smokeless tobacco is not expected, and the category is purely composed of chimó.
