New market study, "Cigars in Sweden", has been published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Sep 02 2015

Cigar smoking does not have any strong and independent historical tradition in Sweden. However, recent years have seen a return to growth amongst at least some segments of cigar smokers. This coincides with a general trend that is alive and well where consumers seek out experiences that are perceived as luxurious whilst still affordable, a pattern engaged in mainly by aspirational middle-class consumers. The postmodern nature of Swedish society in social and cultural terms also makes for a consumer culture that values knowledge and sophistication over the sheer quantity of consumption. Having knowledge about such things as wine, beer, chocolate and cigars is thus not only a way for consumers to seek out pleasure, but is also attached to significant social prestige.

Competitive Landscape

Scandinavian Tobacco Group was leading cigars in 2014 with a 43% share in terms of retail volume, followed by Dannemann Cigarrenfabrik with an 11% share.

Industry Prospects

Whilst the total number of cigar smokers is currently on the decline, there is an opportunity for growth amongst young, middle-class and aspirational consumers. Whether manufacturers will be able to truly capitalise on this and make cigar smoking as mainstream as, for example, chocolate connoisseurship has become hinges on whether a consumer culture will spring up around cigars. Turning cigar smoking social through cigar clubs and through the spread of information via cigar magazines and online platforms is probably the most reliable route in which manufacturers will be able to do so. Some such development has been observed during the review period and this will probably continue over the forecast period.
