Expenditure on alcohol and tobacco in the United Kingdom Q1 2012- Q4 2018 2017 and 2018 have seen an increase in consumer spending on alcohol and tobacco. The upwards trend was only interrupted in the third quarter of 2017. In the last quarter of 2018, expenditure reached a seven year high of almost 11.5 billion British pounds.

While expenditure in 2017 and 2018 is up, the sales volume in the category is down. Compared to August 2016, sales volumes in August 2017 were down 27 percent. Month by month comparisons show lower sales starting in February 2017 and continuing into the summer of 2018. These developments in expenditure and sales volume were accompanied by a price hike starting in January 2017. The general upward trend in prices was still unbroken at the start of 2019.

Impacts

Household expenditure for tobacco and alcohol products puts lower income households under a much greater strain than high income households. On average, 3.3 percent of household income in the poorest ten percent of households is spent on these products. With an increased spending for lower volumes, this strain is increasing too.
