Industry Prospects

With the economic and political situation becoming more stable in 2014 and after the announcement that the prices of cigarettes will increase by 50%, the shift from cigarettes to smoking tobacco is set to continue. Over the forecast period smoking tobacco is set to post a volume CAGR of 5%, which will be an improvement on the review period CAGR of 4%. This performance will be fuelled by the increasing shift of light smokers towards shisha smoking as cigarette prices are set to rise at a faster rate than smoking tobacco, which has much lower unit prices. In addition, shisha smoking also has wider appeal among female smokers, thus offering greater potential for growth.
