Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/06/2014 -- In the context of declining domestic consumption, with smoking prevalence increasing but Belgian smokers smoking less, the excise duty rise that took effect in 2013 resulted in a significant price increase. This had two major effects. Firstly, the trading down trend was halted. Instead of choosing economy brands, Belgians switched to cheaper RYO tobacco.

Competitive Landscape

As in various neighbouring countries, Belgian cigarette sales are dominated by multinationals, with Philip Morris, British American Tobacco, Imperial Tobacco and JT International together accounting for a 93% share of volumes in 2013.

Industry Prospects

Cigarettes is predicted a further volume decline over 2013-2018. This will be due to several factors, including, first and foremost, rising health concerns. Another reason will be price increases. Price rises in 2013 reduced the attractiveness of Belgian cigarettes to smokers in neighbouring countries. As a result, cross-border trade is also set to slowly diminish over the course of the next five years.
