South Africa: Smoking Tobacco Market and the Impact of COVID-19 on It in the Medium Term

The smoking tobacco market in South Africa was equal to 68.20 million USD (calculated in retail prices) in 2015. Until 2025, the tobacco market in South Africa is forecast to reach 118.84 million USD (in retail prices), thus increasing at a CAGR of 4.89% per annum for the period 2020-2025. This is a decrease, compared to the growth of about 6.46% per year, registered in 2015-2019.

The average consumption per capita in value terms reached 1.25 USD per capita (in retail prices) in 2015. In the next five years, it grew at a CAGR of 5.11% per annum. In the medium term (by 2025), the indicator is forecast to slow down its growth and increase at a CAGR of 3.77% per annum.

One of the most prominent trends on the global smoking tobacco market is connected with the decrease of smoking rates over the last few years. Although the retail value of smoking tobacco increased in 2017 compared to 2016, retail volumes have been falling on a global scale. The increase in retail sales value of smoking tobacco has been mainly driven by pricing. The market can be divided into two main categories, namely fine-cut tobacco (roll-your-own) and pipe tobacco. Particularly, the segment of roll-your-own has been a stable business for most of the companies, which represents a significant share of retail sales within the smoking tobacco category.

One of the main drivers of smoking tobacco is taxation. In countries, where roll-your-own cigarettes are undertaxed, compared to factory-made cigarettes, the use of smoking tobacco is generally higher. Geographically, Europe is the largest region for smoking tobacco in terms of retail value. However, smoking tobacco volumes are declining in the region, as well as the volumes of cigarettes and cigars and cigarillos.

During the last few years there has been an obvious process of consolidation on the overall tobacco market, prompted by declines in traditional cigarette sales. One of the biggest deals was the takeover of Reynolds by British American Tobacco in 2017. Reynolds, on the other hand, completed the acquisition of its US rival Lorillard a year earlier. The combined business of the US and the UK companies is expected to strengthen their presence on markets such as South America, the Middle East and Africa.
