New Market Report: Cigarettes in Azerbaijan

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Sep 11 2015

In 2014, an improving economic climate and rising disposable incomes created a platform for the further development of mid-priced and premium cigarettes. Smokers in Azerbaijan shifted to cigarettes of a better quality. At the same time, increasing health awareness drove consumers towards low and ultra-low tar cigarettes as well as vapour devices. As a result, the volume sales of high-tar cigarettes declined by 1%.

Competitive Landscape

Entering the category remains difficult for small companies in Azerbaijan due to the fact that it continues to be led by four big companies, namely Japan Tobacco Inc (locally represented by Cahan Tobacco MMC), Imperial Tobacco Group, British American Tobacco and local player European Tobacco-Baku MMC. These four international companies have years of experience and huge budgets for new product development and marketing activities. The share of Cahan was 30% while that of JTI was 36% due to also including the 6% share held by Gallaher. Imperial Tobacco MMC ranked second with a 28% volume share, followed in third place by British American Tobacco with a share of 24%.
