Cuba Is one of the largest cigarette markets in the Caribbean with very high per capita consumption compared to other Latin American states. Due to Cubas communist government the cigarette market is spilt into a free market that offers high-quality, but expensive international brands, a rationed market and the non-rationed state market, which offers domestic brands of varying quality. Foreign companies are beginning to enter the domestic market through joint ventures with the state-owned manufacturer, Tabacuba, to capitalize on the opening up of the Cuban economy despite the governments increasingly tough anti-tobacco laws.
Per capita consumption was at 1,095 pieces a year in 2014, which is very high but is also down 27.3% from 1990
Of the total adult Cuban population, 33.3% are smokers, which makes it one of the larger Caribbean cigarette markets
The state-owned Tabacuba dominates the market with 78.2% of volume sales
The growing importance of the free market means rationed cigarettes are expected to decline with consumers choosing more high-quality international brands over domestic offerings
