"Smoking Tobacco in Latvia" Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Sep 12 2014

Pipe tobacco has traditionally been popular amongst men aged over 40 who perceive pipe smoking as a hobby or an element of a certain lifestyle. Commonly, pipe smoking has romantic associations with famous books and film characters. Pipe tobacco is considered to be more classical and natural, as nearly all major pipe tobacco brands are 100% tobacco. As a result, pipe tobacco tends not to compete with cigarettes, as it is perceived by most Latvians as being of much higher quality. The respective split of men/women consuming pipe tobacco is approximately 70%/30%.

Competitive Landscape

In 2013, Planta Tabak-Manufaktur Dr Manfred Obermann GmbH & Co continued to lead sales in smoking tobacco with 19% volume share. The company benefits from the performance of Excellent, which is one of the longest running brands in Latvia. Moreover, it has one of the broadest distribution networks. High interest in flavoured RYO smoking tobacco products also benefits this brand, as it has a wide flavoured product assortment. The company also has a strong presence in pipe tobacco due to performance of Holger Danske and Planta No.1 brands, which offer good quality and price ratio.
