Cigars and Cigarillos Spain, 2016


Spain is one of the largest markets for tobacco products in Western Europe. Sales of cigars and cigarillos are standing at almost 2300 million pieces in 2014. Per capita sales illustrate the importance of cigars and cigarillos within the wider tobacco market with a per capita consumption of more than 48 million pieces in 2014.

Key Findings

The market can be split into three broad segments: cigarettes, smoking tobacco, and cigar/ cigarillos. Cigarettes are by far the largest segment, accounting for around 80.2% of volumes in 2015, and their share down on previous years. However, cigar/ cigarillo’s share has increased in the last ten years

Consumption of smoking tobacco has slightly decreased in 2004 to 2014, down from 2,510 tons in 2004 to 6,905 tons in 2014

The arrival and popularity of filter cigarillos since 2008 helped bring an expansion in volumes since 2010 onwards. Despite this, higher prices are believed to have reduced sales in 2014

For cigar/cigarillo, the Spanish market is sub-divided into three major sectors: 'puros' (large cigars), 'puritos' (small cigars/cigarillos) and 'minis' (miniature cigars), where the minis have the highest market volume

In 2014, the imports level, for cigars/cigarillos, is higher than the production or the export levels

There is no specific excise tax applied to cigars and cigarillos in Spain
