Cigarettes in Argentina

Cigarettes in Argentina

Argentina is one the largest cigarette markets in Latin America with over 10 million smokers in the country, equating to 34.3% of the adult population. However, the market is expected to contract slightly in the long term due to non-duty paid cigarettes, high prices, and a growing trend to stop smoking. The market is currently dominated by two companies, Massalin Particulares and Nobleza-Piccardo, with combined volume sales making just over 90% of duty paid cigarettes.
