Uruguay has a population of just over 3.3 million and is one of South America's smaller cigarette markets. Annual per capita consumption levels are relatively high in regional terms, averaging 740 pieces in 2014. However, the effects of the economic difficulties, increased taxes, high non-duty paid sales, competition from RYO cigarettes, and a tightening of restrictions on tobacco consumption have depressed demand for manufactured cigarettes.
The market is dominated by domestically produced blond cigarettes. The leading player is the independent locally owned Compaia Industrial de Tabacos Monte Paz SA. Imports have historically been a small and declining feature of the market. Uruguay is one of South America's most proactive nations in terms of the control of tobacco use.
