Singapore is important as a major distribution center for the Asia-Pacific region, but its relatively small population, currently around 5.7 million, means it has only a small domestic cigarette market. Annual per capita consumption levels are relativelylow in regional terms, averaging 514 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 local market is dominated by filter cigarettes, which account for virtually 100% of sales or 2.87 billion pieces in 2014. Most of the industrial activity in the Singapore cigarette market is centered on the import and re-export of cigarettes. The market has been almost entirely contested between three companies: Philip Morris Singapore (PMI), British American Tobacco Singapore (BAT) and Japan Tobacco International (JTI). The most significant development of recent years has been the emergence of the low priced sector.
