In 2014, cigars registered retail volume growth of 5% to exceed nine million units and current value growth of 8% to reach sales worth AZN45 million. Smoking cigars and cigarillos is not a daily habit in Azerbaijan. These productsÂ’ higher prices compared to cigarettes mean that consumers tend to see them as a status symbol. Cigar smoking is mostly seen in restaurants and bars when celebrating a special occasion.

Competitive Landscape

The main player in cigars excluding cigarillos in 2014 was Swisher International Group with a retail volume share of 22%, up from 19% in 2013. It was very closely followed by Villiger Sِhne AG with a retail volume share of close to 22%, up from 20% the previous year. Imperial Tobacco MMC lost its leading position in 2014, with its retail volume share falling to 17% from 23% in 2013. This decline was mainly due to the increased activities of Swisher International Group in the country.
