Smokeless Tobacco in Spain, 2016

Smokeless Tobacco in Spain, 2016


Spain is a sizeable market for tobacco products with total sales amounting to just under 60,000 tons in 2014. Yet despite this, and the fact that the Spanish were the first to popularize snuff when tobacco was first imported to Europe, smokeless tobacco has a marginal position in the market. Volumes are no more than around 300kg per annum with a decline in sales recorded in the past few years despite an expansion in the number of products on offer.

Key Findings

No production of smokeless tobacco is believed to be taking place in Spain at present, and no excise is charged on smokeless tobacco products
