Trends

Cigarettes retail volume sales fell significantly by 8% to 88.1 billion sticks by 2015. This decline was mainly due to the increase in excise and further enforcement of regulation across states where it was not previously strictly managed. The average price increase in cigarettes was 11%, which was on the back of increasing taxation during the budget.

Competitive Landscape

Cigarettes remained a duopoly in 2015, with ITC Ltd and Godfrey Phillips India Ltd (GPI) the leading manufacturers. ITC led the cigarettes category with a retail volume share of 79%, followed by GPI with 11%.
