Cigars and Cigarillos in Belgium and Luxembourg, 2019

Summary
The Benelux market for tobacco products is relatively large.Sales in 2017 were 25,775 tons with a fall to 25,102 tons forecasted for 2018.

Cigarettes are the largest product group and accounted for 49.7% of the total tobacco products market in 2018 but were down 60% recorded in 2008. Smoking tobacco accounted for 47.8% of the market in 2018, which is up on 36% in 2008. Cigars and cigarillos accounted for the remaining 2.5% of the market in 2018, which is down on 4% in 2008. Smokeless tobacco is a marginal sector.

Belgium is the larger of the Benelux markets with sales of 271.5 million pieces forecasted in 2018. Luxembourg was expected to achieve sales of 39.5 million pieces in 2018. Cigar and cigarillo volumes have continued their downward spiral since 2008 as both competition from other tobacco products and fewer opportunities to smoke adversely affect the market. Forecasts for 2018 were for a small increase in volumes helped in large part by stability in fiscal policies in both Belgium and Luxembourg to 311 million pieces.

Imports for Belgium were 2,053 million pieces in 2017 with an equivalent value of €72.3 million. The Netherlands and Indonesia are both major sources. Luxembourg’s imports in 2017 were 173 million pieces or €11.3 million, for which Belgium and the Netherlands were the main sources. Belgian exports in 2017 were 4,602 million pieces with the Netherlands the main export market.

It is estimated that 15.4% of adults were regular smokers in 2017, equivalent to 1.4 million individuals. Men accounted for 60% of smokers, 847,000, and women accounted for 40% or 563,000. The Benelux cigar and cigarillo market supports a number of companies. As of 2017 the main contenders in the market were STG (76%), Agio (9.9%), and J Cortès (8.5%). Smaller players include Heintz van Landewyck/Torrekens (4.2%), and distributors Cubacigar (0.9%) and Zabia.

Overall volumes are forecast to drop 40.3%, from 311 million pieces in 2018 to 185.7 million pieces in 2028. Annual per capita consumption is forecast to drop from 26.9 pieces in 2018 to 15.2 pieces by 2028, a decrease of 43.5%. Cigarillos will suffer the greatest fall in both national markets. The Benelux market for cigars and cigarillos is in a period of long-term decline. Both cigar and cigarillo sales are forecast to fall back further over the next decade with rising prices and growing health awareness the main reason.
