GERMANY
Less cigarettes smoked in 2021

Germans smoke fewer cigarettes, but more shisha – "Jahrbuch Sucht 2022" (Addiction Yearbook) has published recent statistics, reports ZDF.

Fewer cigarettes are smoked in Germany, but the consumption of shisha tobacco continues to rise significantly. And when it comes to alcohol, Germany remains a "high-consumption country" in international comparison, as the "Jahrbuch Sucht 2022" of the German Centre for Addiction Issues (DHS) shows.
According to the report, the consumption of combustible cigarettes in 2021 was 71.8 billion units and was 2.8 per cent lower than in the previous year. With a per capita consumption of 863 cigarettes in this sub-sector, this is the lowest value since 1990. For RYO cigarettes, the consumption decreased by 5.6 per cent to a quantity corresponding to about 37.3 billion RYO cigarettes. Pipe tobacco, on the other hand, increased significantly by 40 per cent to almost 8,400 tonnes. The reason for this is the continuing popularity of special water pipe tobacco, which is mainly smoked in shishas by teenagers and young adults.
In 2021, EUR 29.4 billion were spent on tobacco products in Germany. In 2020, one in four women (24 per cent) and one in three men (34 per cent) aged 18 and over smoked.
