Executive Summary

The Australian Cigars & Cigarillos market expanded as the ripples of the cigar boom of the mid-1990s encouraged a growing number of Australians to switch to this product. Cigarillos, in particular, became a popular entry level product with the result that volumes jumped to 82.9 million pieces or 227 tons in 2005. Since then the market has been in decline due to the impact of rising levels of tax on retail prices, growing health awareness, and restrictions on smoking reducing levels of consumption.

Key Findings

Cigars/cigarillos are not a major feature of Australian society and volumes are in decline, at almost 120 tons in 2015. Tobacco products including chewing tobacco and snuff are believed to have sales of less than one ton per annum

The long-term future for cigar and cigarillo sales remains disappointing given the recent and expected future pressures on this sector as well as on the wider tobacco market

Rising prices are set to depress demand in the cigarillo, medium cigar, and large cigar markets, although the large cigar segment is likely to suffer most

Growth in the number of cigarette smokers switching to cigars is having a major impact on the style of products in demand. Cigarillos and small cigars have been the main beneficiaries on account of their similarity to cigarettes both in terms of size and smoking occasions
