The Venezuelan cigarette market has performed poorly since the 1990s because of the countrys volatile economy, linked to international oil prices, widespread poverty, and high levels of contraband cigarettes. Additionally, Venezuela has some of the most stringent anti-tobacco laws in Latin America with provisions against advertising, public smoking, and sponsorship. The market is dominated by two major brands, Cigarrera Bigott Sucs, a BAT subsidiary, and CA Tabacalera Nacional (Catana), an associate of PMI, and some local brands.
Due to Venezuelas economic problems and contraband, the legitimate cigarette market contracted 27.5% in 2011
CA Cigarrera Bigott Sucs (Bigott) and CA Tabacalera Nacional (Catana) are the most important companies in the market with 93% of all legitimate volume sales in 2012
The smoking population has contracted considerably with 27.4% of the population smoking, as of 2012, compared to 40.5% in 1990
Most cigarettes consumed in Venezuela are produced domestically, but this has been falling dramatically in recent years due to wider economic problems. In 2012, only eight billion cigarettes were produced compared to over 23 billion in 1990
