PT Djarum, based at Kudus, is Indonesia's third largest kretek manufacturer with a 21.1% share of the Indonesian kretek market in 2012, equivalent to a 19.7% share of the overall market including white cigarettes. Prior to 1998 it ranked second overall but was overtaken by Sampoerna. Despite this, the launch of light variants now appears to have stemmed the decline in its share although since 2005 it had been losing share again but it has recovered ground during the past two years..
