Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/30/2014 -- Cigarette volume sales in the UK continued to decline in 2013. This can be attributed to a range of factors, including the rollout of the display ban in 2012, the fact that smoking as a habit is being increasingly seen as unsociable and a reduction in consumer purchasing power due to tighter budgets.

Competitive Landscape

Gallaher Ltd was the leading player in cigarettes in the UK in 2013 with a 38% retail volume share. Gallaher continued to see strong sales growth for its Sterling brand, which competes mainly in terms of price, undercutting most other brands. Sterling consequently attracted increasingly price-sensitive consumers in 2013, with its volume sales growing by 11%.

Industry Prospects

The introduction of further regulations under the EU Tobacco Products Directive is expected to continue to dampen sales of cigarettes in the UK over the forecast period. Moreover, sales will also be hit by more and more smokers trying to kick the habit, consumers trading down to cheaper brands and switching to cheaper formats like RYO tobacco or alternative products such as e-cigarettes.
