Executive Summary

The total tobacco products market in France continued to decline in 2014, dropping by a further 5% to approximately 55,500 tons, and is now 46% below 1990 levels. It is dominated by industrially produced cigarettes, which represent more than 80% of the total tobacco products market in 2014, although cigarettes now account for a substantially reduced share than they did previously. Cigarettes volumes have fallen by more than 50% since 1990; most of this decline has occurred since 2001 as a result of a series of progressive tax and price increases.

Key Findings

Moderate growth of 2% was reported for 2013, with market volumes reaching a new high of more than 9,000 tons, although in 2014 consumption of smoking tobacco fell back by 3% to approximately 8,700 tons as a result of the impact of three successive tax increases

Annual per capita consumption rates dropped to 131g in 2014, a 3% recovery is projected for 2015 based on the first four months data

In 2014, JTIs Camel moved marginally ahead of its Fleur du Pays, capturing pole position, although both had shares of almost 11%. PMIs Interval was third while Marlboro moved from the fourth spot into fifth place
