In January 2016, the Turkmen Government banned the sale of all tobacco products. No legal sales can be attained until the ban is lifted, leaving the country in the hands of the black market trade. Legitimate cigarette sales were fewer than two billion pieces in 2014; this is low due to the comparatively low disposable incomes, the low prevalence of smoking among women, and the growing presence of contraband cigarettes
The Turkmen Government has been increasingly limiting sales of tobacco products, including cigarettes, over the past decades, leading to a total ban in January 2016
Trade data indicates that demand had begun to be affected by the slowdown in the local economy. As a result, consumption in 2015 was estimated to have decreased by almost 8%
In the long-term, an improvement in personal disposable incomes and some improvement in market controls could help increase the formal market for cigarettes, but there is no prospect for legal sales unless the ban is lifted
