Cigar consumption in Europe (2011-2020)
Cigars and cigarillos are niche products within a much larger manufactured tobacco market and constitute enjoyment products, which contribute only marginally to smoking prevalence across the EU.
The market for cigars and cigarillos continues to decline across Europe (from 10 billion sticks in 2011 to 8.85 in 2020) with no signs that this trend will reverse anytime soon.
