Cigarettes in Albania

Cigarettes in Albania

Though Albania is a small country with a low population it has very high rates of smoking due to low levels of taxation, low cost, and the ubiquitous nature of cheap non-duty cigarettes. The government is trying to limit and stop smoking amongst citizens by increasing taxes, limiting advertisement, and cracking down on illegal cigarette production and smuggling. However, the market is expected to remain stable despite government intervention.

Key Findings
Albania produces very few cigarettes and is dependent on imports

Smoking rates are high with over 35% of the adult population smoking

Non-duty paid cigarettes are prevalent across the country due to smuggling from Greece, Macedonia, and Serbia
