This is a small market for cigarettes: in 2012 sales amounted to 1.3 billion pieces. Its size is restricted by a fairly limited smoking population - only 1.3% of women smoke although just under a third of men do. Smoking prevalence among both groups is, however, rising. The 2008 ban on the production, import and use of nassaya (chewing tobacco) is encouraging demand for cigarettes.
The country does not produce cigarettes, instead relying on imports. Most leading international manufacturers have a presence although all legitimate trade remains under state control and contracts have to be registered.
Strong growth in demand for cigarettes is forecast over the next 10 years, with this increasing by 42% to 1.86 billion pieces and raising per capita intake to 329 pieces.
