In Sweden the overall consumption of tobacco products was estimated at almost 12,000 tons in 2014, of which smoking tobacco, including fine cut for rolling cigarettes and pipe tobacco, accounted for only 2% of sales. Snus has a dominant position and takes half of the market. A further key consideration in this market has been the considerable volume of smoking tobacco purchased by Norwegians along the long border between the two countries as a result of the lower tax levels prevailing in Sweden.

Key Findings
- Total consumption of tobacco products (including duty-free/border trade) was estimated at 12,000 tons in 2014. Smokeless tobacco, essentially snus, forms the largest sector and accounted for 52 % of volumes in 2014. Cigarettes accounted for over 45% of volumes and smoking tobacco took a reduced 2% in 2014

- Sweden has the lowest incidence of regular smoking in Europe and one of the lowest in the world. According to 2012 data, 11% of men and 13% of women smoke on a daily basis

- Imports rose sharply to over 400 tons in 2010, mainly due to a sharp rise in imports from Denmark, but settled back to 260 tons in 2014. Exports of smoking tobacco had stood at almost 1,700 tons in 2000, but have subsequently fallen to low levels of re-export trade, principally to other Scandinavian destinations

- The earlier tax rises appear to have caused irreparable damage to the FCT market with smokers opting for snus or staying with manufactured cigarettes. FCT volumes are forecast to decline to 150 tons by 2024, which is more than 30% down on 2014 levels
