The cigarette market is relatively flat and tending to decline long term but recent efforts to combat contraband trade have lifted duty paid volume. The majority of adult smokers are males, also the high number of tourists which visit Mauritius every year contribute to the per capita consumption. The market exhibits strong western characteristics with king size lengths dominating. International brands are popular, assisted in part by the dominant presence of BAT and the influence of tourism.
