Cigarettes in Norway, 2018

Cigarettes in Norway, 2018


Cigarettes in Norway, 2018, is an analytical report by GlobalData that provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Norwegian market. The report offers Market size and structure of the overall and per capita consumption based upon a unique combination of industry research, fieldwork, market sizing analysis, and our in-house expertise.

Norway is a small market for cigarettes and one where duty paid sales have dropped considerably in recent years, primarily due to increased anti-smoking legislation. Since 2009, the market has seen annual declines, culminating in a 1.7% fall in 2017 to just below 1,696 million pieces, 42.5% below 1990 volumes. Per capita consumption is also low and registered 319 pieces a year in 2017, which is down by 58.1% on 1990 levels. Domestic consumption includes substantial volumes of cross border and duty free sales, as well as some RYO cigarette use. Taken with the continued popularity of snus, cigarette sales are under considerable pressure.


  • High tax levels and recent annual increases have encouraged consumers to increasingly rely on cross-border shopping trips to Sweden, where tax levels and retail prices are lower.
  • The rate of smoking in Norway has declined sharply in recent years, reflecting both the impact of public health campaigns and the rising popularity of snus.
  • Filter cigarettes account for the vast majority of sales, with light products, or their replacement equivalents, being the single largest sector.
