Cigar humidor sales expected to rise dramatically when U.S. trade embargo is lifted

Once the embargo is lifted, 70-90 million Cuban cigars will flood the U.S. market. The demand for new cigar humidors could reach 500,000 units

Now that the U.S. trade embargo against Cuba has softened, estimates are that once the embargo is lifted completely, 70-90 million Cuban cigars will flood the American cigar market each year. New U.S. laws, enacted in December of 2014, now allow more Americans to travel to Cuba, and allow island visitors to return to the U.S. with up to $100 in Cuban cigars. Cuban officials estimate that in 2015 alone, this change will bring a 100% increase in the sale of hand-rolled Cuban cigars on the island, from 3 million to 6 million cigars sold.

That’s a lot of cigars looking for a place to stay once they arrive in the U.S. The cigar humidor and cigar accessory retailer Cuban Cigar Humidors plans to assist with this ‘housing shortage’ by meeting the demand for new cigar humidors. As the average cigar humidor can accommodate about 120 cigars, the demand for new cigar humidors may reach 500,000 units once the embargo is lifted. Even when based on the initial 3 million unit jump in Cuban cigar sales projected for this year, the number of additional cigar humidors sold could reach 25,000. A spokesman for Cuban Cigar Humidors states “of course, we don’t expect every cigar smoker to buy a new cigar humidor once they possess Cuban cigars. However, when one takes into account the thousands of new cigar smokers this change may bring, the potential for a huge increase in cigar humidor and cigar accessory sales is great.”

Carrying a full line of high quality cigar humidors, including desktop, cabinet, travel, and display models, and offering them at extremely low prices, has brought website to the top of the list for value-oriented cigar shoppers. Cigar accessories such as cigar lighters, ashtrays, and cigar cutters, are also available at deeply discounted prices. Among the top 5 online cigar humidor retailers, Cuban Cigar Humidors has the lowest prices on almost all brands.

As the inevitable - and once thought impossible - Cuban cigar boom in the U.S. begins, there will be an ever increasing demand for quality cigar humidors and cigar accessories. No longer 90 miles away, Cuban cigars are once again coming to America, and retailer Cuban Cigar Humidors is prepared for the flood.
