It is estimated that there are 13 million adult cigarette smokers in the UK, roughly one in three of the adult population. In addition there are 2 million cigar and pipe smokers

The total value of sales of duty paid cigarettes in 2002 was £12.9 billion

Smokers in the UK are switching from premium to mid-price brands and the major companies have reacted to consumer demand for cheaper cigarettes by launching economy brands

In 2002 some 28 billion cigarettes entered the UK as either personal or illegal imports

The major consumer trend has been to down-trade in cigarettes. This has led to the introduction of a number of economy brands, such as Richmond, and a repositioning of existing ones. The economy sector accounts for some 44% of total market volume

In 2001 Imperial Tobacco overtook Gallaher as the UK number one player in terms of volume share of the cigarette market

Benson & Hedges Special Filter is the leading premium brand with a 9.4% of the cigarette market, Superkings is the leading standard brand (4.9% of total sales), while Lambert & Butler King Size is the leading economy brand
