In recent years Mozambique has been benefiting from relatively strong economic growth, which, coupled with a rapidly expanding population, has boosted duty-paid cigarette sales. Nevertheless, the country remains poor with more than 70% of its population living below the poverty line. Cigarette volumes were estimated at around 4.5 billion pieces in 2014, more than 250% above 1990 levels. Nevertheless, per capita consumption remains quite low at approximately 185 pieces in 2014, although this is nearly double 1990 levels.
Until 2012 there was continuous growth, encouraged by a buoyant economy, but 2013 saw consumption decline by 3.8% as a result of a tax rise. Excise duty hikes in 2014 are believed to have dented sales with volumes down to 4.6 billion pieces, 5.2% down on 2013
Imports accounted for 59.2% of the market in 2011 compared with 51.6% in 2000; however, the profile of imports has fallen since 2011 as output expanded to an estimated 43.5% in 2014
Forecasts for 2015 were for an improvement despite some further increases in excise duty. Volumes were expected to recover slightly, rising more than 2% to almost five billion pieces
