Cigarettes in Chile

Cigarettes in Chile

The market has long been dominated by BAT Chile (formerly Chiletabacos) which has had a long-established presence in the country and is the only multinational cigarette manufacturer actually producing in the country. BAT currently has a market share of just under 95%.

Key Findings
The country is vulnerable to illegal imports due to its long coastline and proximity to Paraguay where over-production is endemic

Official imports are quite low amounting to just 0.50 billion pieces in 2014, almost all originating from Argentina

The market is forecast to decline further in the future as a result of the ongoing impact of the public smoking ban and further restrictions, coupled with further tax rises driving up prices again
