Abstract Table of Contents Request Details Related
Belgium has a long tradition of cigar smoking, in particular standard cigars and cigarillos. Belgium is one of the biggest consumers of cigarillos in Europe. The country used to be an important cigar producer. The cigars category in Belgium is dominated by cigars which weigh less than 3g. The consumption of cigars and cigarillos remains almost exclusively the domain of male smokers, and is dominated by mass-market products. The largest consumer group comprises men aged 35-54. Female cigar smokers in Belgium are relatively uncommon, accounting for less than 1% of the female population. Females tend to prefer flavoured cigarillos.

Competitive Landscape

Scandinavian Tobacco Group Benelux maintained its lead in overall cigars in 2012 with a 53% volume share, followed by Agio Cigars with 18% and Swedish Match with 14%.

Industry Prospects

The overall performance of cigars is expected to decline both in volume and constant value terms over the forecast period. Rising health concerns and stricter tobacco legislation are likely to hit the cigarillos category in particular – which is closer to cigarettes both in terms of price and of smoking habits.
