Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/27/2014 -- As in neighbouring Ireland, high cigarette prices have led to a significant fall in duty paid consumption and an accompanying rise in illicit supplies and roll your own usage (both duty paid and illicit). High retail prices have also impacted on the premium sector whose share is down to 19.3%; low priced cigarettes now account for 76.6% of overall sales. This is reflected in brand shares with the leading four brands - Mayfair, Sterling, Lambert & Butler and Richmond - all being value brands.
Some 8.2 billion pieces are expected to be lost from the duty paid sector by 2022 bringing consumption down to 32.3 billion pieces, equivalent to 487 pieces per head.
