El Salvador is the smallest country in Central America with an equally small population of 6.1 million people. However, it has one of most developed economies in the region with a relatively large smoking population, almost a quarter of the adult population, making it an important market for cigarette companies. The market is dominated by two international companies, PMI and BAT, with a combined market share of 98.5%. The cigarette market is expected to decline in the country due to high prices, non-duty paid cigarettes, and greater anti-smoking laws, which will create struggling times ahead for manufacturers.
