Annual per capita consumption in 2023 is forecast 18.4% down on 2013 levels and very low by regional standards.
The 8.3% rise in sales in 2014 was prompted by an increase in excise duty and stockpiling. The result is a market at 85.9% of its 1990 level compared with 47.1% in 2006, though this can be partly attributed to strong population growth.
In 2003 the tax basis was shifted to a per piece basis in order to discriminate against lower weight cigarettes. Taxes were increased in 2004, 2005 and more recently in 2014 when excise duty was subject to a 10.2% hike.
