Import value of tobacco products in Germany 2009-2019, by product group

Germany has been importing an increasing worth of cigarettes in recent years, with value amounting to over 1.12 billion euros in 2019. Cigarettes were therefore the most expensive imported tobacco product that year, followed by actual tobacco.

Daily smokers

The average price for a cigarette in Germany has only gone up in recent years, reaching 29 euro cents in 2018. This development might be one of the reasons for falling daily smoking levels in Germany. If in 2008 the smoking population collectively consumed 240 cigarettes a day, ten years later that number amounted to 204 cigarettes. Based on a recent survey, 32 percent of Germans stated they smoked 11 to 20 cigarettes a day.

Puffing away

When comparing European countries, the share of individuals who smoke daily was highest in Greece, Hungary and Austria, with Germany being below the leading ten. The manufacturing of tobacco products in Germany is predicted to generate almost 28.8 billion U.S. dollars in industry revenue in 2020.
