Executive Summary

Tobacco is one of the major commercial crops in India. Irrespective of the health hazards associated with it, the Indian tobacco industry contributes significantly to the economy in terms of employment, income and government revenue. It is the second largest sector in terms of central excise revenue contribution after the oil and gas sector. The industry also acts as a major foreign exchange earner for the government. Besides tobacco farming and production, the Indian tobacco industry also comprises of companies involved in manufacturing, sales and distribution of tobacco products like cigarettes, cigars, beedis and chewing tobacco.

Fiscal year 2013 was a challenging year for the Indian tobacco industry. The increase in excise duty exerted pressure on the volumes as well as margins of the domestic tobacco companies. The tobacco production index slipped in the first half of FY13, but showed impressive recovery in the last quarter of the fiscal year. On a per capita basis, consumption of cigarettes in India is the lowest among Asian countries. The prevalence of low cost substitutes like beedis and hookah is the reason for this low consumption.

The consistent rise in excise duty and regulatory restrictions are the biggest challenges for the sector. However, India’s low per capita cigarette consumption bodes well for the sector.
