As a result, industry revenue is estimated to fall at a compound annual 0.8% over the five years through 2014-15. Revenue is forecast to drop by 3.8% in 2014-15 to reach $1.8 billion.

What is the Cigarette and Tobacco Product Manufacturing Industry?

Companies in the industry primarily manufacture tobacco products such as cigarettes, cigars, roll-your-own cigarettes and loose pipe tobacco. These products are sold to specialist tobacco wholesalers and retailers, supermarkets and convenience stores. Smokeless tobacco products such as chewing tobacco and snuff are banned in Australia and are therefore not included in the industry. Industry revenue does not include excise taxes.
