Executive Summary

The US tobacco products market is dominated by manufactured cigarettes, with 2015 volumes accounting for two thirds of the market. Cigars account for less than a tenth of the market by volume and form the third largest sector of the US tobacco market after cigarettes and smokeless tobacco. The US market has been largely supplied by domestic producers, although imports are taking a growing share of consumption, with import penetration rising to just over 40% in 2014. Historically, cigar usage has grown substantially and although further growth is expected going forward, it will be at a much slower rate than the historic trend.

Key Findings

Overall, total Cigars & Cigarillos consumption has grown by more than 1.5 times over 2004-2015.

As a result of sharp increase in taxation on small cigars introduced in April 2009, the leading manufacturers reclassified these cigars to the larger category, which led to strong growth in the large cigars category

Imports of cigars and cigarillos reached an all-time high of over five million pieces in 2014

The US market is led by the independently-owned Swisher International, which accounts for a fifth of the market share
