Smoking Tobacco in Serbia - New Report Available

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


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/21/2015 -- In 2013, there was an explosion of new product development within RYO tobacco in Serbia. Many manufacturers and distributors recognise the importance of this product area, due to consumers switching from cigarettes to RYO tobacco in order to save money. Cigarette prices soared during the review period due to higher tax, with more consumers thus becoming attracted to RYO tobacco. Major new product development in 2013 came from major players, with sales in 2013 indeed led by the new launches of Filter 57 and Bond Street from Imperial Tobacco and Philip Morris respectively.

Competitive Landscape

Imperial Tobacco dominated smoking tobacco for most of the review period, accounting for 70-71% retail volume share over 2008-2011. This company offers three brands that have been present for more than a decade in Serbia Drum, Golden Virginia and Van Nelle. The company thus benefits from a loyal customer base for these brands and also benefits from wide distribution.

Industry Prospects

Smoking tobacco is expected to see increased demand over the forecast period thanks to the growing popularity of RYO tobacco as a substitute for cigarettes as cigarette prices continue to rise. However, RYO tobacco sales will continue to be constrained by the widespread availability of illicit RYO tobacco. Sales will thus largely depend on the ability of the Serbian government to constrain illicit sales. However, there are concerns that the government is not clamping down on illicit RYO tobacco sales to its full power, preferring to enable people to access a cheap alternative to cigarettes in order to avoid social unrest.
