Smokeless Tobacco in Finland, 2017
The Finnish smokeless tobacco market, like other Scandinavian countries, has a relatively large smokeless tobacco market that accounted for 16.6% of the total market in 2015. However, a 2016 law banned loose snus, the largest segment of this category, to keep Finland in line with EU anti-tobacco directives. This stopped the legal sale of snus but has not reduced high local demand for the product across the country. As such, consumers are importing snus from neighboring countries, particularly Russia and Sweden, for personal use or for illegal re-sale. Despite the ban on loose snus, per capita consumption of smokeless tobacco, driven mostly by imported snus, rose to 201.1g in 2016 from 84.3g in 2005. Consequently, the market is forecast to grow steadily in the long term because of black market snus consumption.
