Mid tar gains as premium-priced cigarettes shrink

The fastest-growing sectors of the market during 2005 were mid tar cigarettes, thanks to deepened penetration and considerable efforts in new product development, promoted by the government to combat rising health concerns regarding smoking. With the mid tar and low tar sectors accounting for an extremely tiny share of the market, there is much potential for strong sales growth during the forecast period.

During 2005, premium and mid-priced products performed well across the regions in line with the rising trends of higher consumption power, coupled with high levels of activity in the premium segment. However, there was also strong growth in certain traditional economy areas, mostly famous high tar brands, triggered by vigorous launches of brand-extension new products. Despite the rising taxation rate, most large cigarettes producers made significant gains in the review period.

China becomes the 89th country to ratify the FCTC

China became the 89th country to ratify the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) in 2005, the international tobacco treaty negotiated under the auspices of the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Implementation of the treaty was carried out swiftly, including the setting up a coordination institution involving several critical state ministries. In five years time, a comprehensive ban on tobacco advertising, marketing and promotion, replacement of warnings on cigarette packs, increased taxation on tobacco, and smoke-free public spaces and workplaces are expected to reduce the illnesses caused by tobacco and curb healthcare costs relating to tobacco considerably.

Industry reform sees more action than retail

Continuous merger and acquisition activities, breakthroughs in international cooperation and revised policies on tariffs, supply coordination and product profile made 2005 a breathtaking reform year for tobacco industry.

The ongoing reform involves the formation of 10 giant manufacturers, cutting down of the tariffs, establishing production or research and development alliances with multinationals, creating "supply to order" model in regional retail market, and decreasing the average tar level to nearly 12mg in 2005.
