Now Available: Cigars in Bulgaria

New Consumer Goods research report from Euromonitor International is now available from Fast Market Research


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/28/2015 -- Cigar smoking has a long history in Bulgaria but its image is very different from that of cigarettes and smoking tobacco. While cigarettes are the everyday smoking products, cigars (large, standard, small and even cigarillos) are seen as luxury items. They are bought for special occasions and as a treat, even by people who are not regular smokers. The positive publicity about cigar smoking in the press and the mysterious and luxury image of cigar smokers boosted the category?s performance.

Competitive Landscape

The competitive landscape in cigars is not dynamic. There are only a handful of cigars importers and distributors in Bulgaria but at the brand level the market is very fragmented. In contrast to cigarettes, there was little newcomer activity and the key importers and distributors remain the same (there is no cigar production in Bulgaria). In 2013, Kaliman Karibe OOD, exclusive importer and distributor of Corporaci?n Habanos SA products, accounted for 56% of volume sales. Corporaci?n Habanos?s Cohiba held the highest brand share of 20%. Kaliman Karibe managed to maintain its share in 2013, mostly due to the established positions of Corporaci?n Habanos? brands like Cohiba, Montecristo, Guantanamera and Romeo y Julieta cigars and cigarillos.

Industry Prospects

Cigars is expected to continue its positive volume growth in the forecast period and increase by a 2% CAGR. The rate is expected to be similar to that of the review period. Cigars are not as frequently smoked as cigarettes and only reserved for special occasions. This renders demand more static and smoothly developing. South American and Caribbean culture, with Latin American dancing themed parties and the positive image of the lifestyle in this region, will continue to influence the category positively. The Cuban-themed parties run by restaurants and private companies are expected to continue and serve as a word-of-mouth advertisement for cigars.
