Cigarettes in Finland

Cigarettes in Finland

The Finnish duty-paid cigarette market has declined from the early 1990s due to recession, rising taxes and prices and consequent increased contraband, rising grey market sales, and more recently, competition from snus and e-cigarettes. An illustration of the impact of taxation can be seen by the swings in duty paid sales both before and after a tax rise had been imposed, with this the case in 2008/09, 2011/12 and more recently in 2014/15. There is also substantial cross-border trade with Russia, Sweden, and Estonia.

Key Findings
Overall consumption via all routes to market was down in 2014 relative to 2013 because of tax-induced price hikes that year.
The prevalence of smoking is falling and stood at 18% for men and 14% for women in 2014.
The overall incidence fell to 14.9% in 2014 compared with 25.7% in 1990.
King size formats dominate, accounting for over 95% of sales, with hard packs gaining popularity.
PMI brands dominate sales, largely through L&M and Marlboro, with Chesterfield added in 1999. Its major rivals are Imperial and BAT.
