Abstract Table of Contents Request Details Related
The tradition of pipe smoking has been present in Poland for several decades. Pipe smokers organise competitions, events and pipe clubs for pipe fans. There are about 200,000 people who smoke pipes as a hobby in Poland. Moreover, in past years there were many craftsmen who continued the manual production of pipes. Nevertheless, the culture of pipe smoking in Poland is disappearing with successive generations who do not cultivate this tradition. Further prohibitions introduced by government legislation that affect the overall tobacco market have an impact on large declines in this category. RYO tobacco smoking in Poland is quite a new phenomenon and still quite unpopular. Prices of cigarettes before the review period still remained attractive for Polish consumers who have become accustomed to this product. Currently, more and more young Poles reach for RYO tobacco and in connection with unit price rises of cigarettes in recent years. Still, RYO tobacco smoking is seen as a solution for people who cannot afford to buy cigarettes.

    Competitive Landscape

    The leading company in smoking tobacco was Imperial Tobacco Poland, holding a 54% share of retail volume sales in 2013. The company is the undisputable leader of RYO tobacco, since it has a wide offer of well-known RYO tobacco brands. Philip Morris Poland is ranked second in RYO tobacco, having an 18% volume share. This company owes its position to its well-recognised brands Chesterfield, Korsarz and Red & White.

      Industry Prospects

      Smoking tobacco is expected to revive over the forecast period, mainly due to the fact that Polish consumers will see RYO tobacco as a convenient and legal alternative to cigarettes. Poles are expected to consider this product as an attractive way of smoking and not as an alternative for poor people. The growing range of available brands and brand visibility strengthened in stores will stimulate the demand for these products over the forecast period.
