Summary China is the world’s largest producer and consumer of cigarettes with over 302 million adults smoking in China, as of 2014. China’s large population, domestic tobacco cultivation, and state-run China National Tobacco Corporation (CNTC) mean that smoking prevalence is high in the country. This is being fuelled by growing disposable incomes among Chinese consumers, enabling more consumers to purchase cigarettes regularly. The government has also limited the ability of foreign tobacco companies to operate independent or Chinese-foreign owned factories, which limits the ability of multinationals to compete with the CNTC effectively, as such foreign brands only account for 1% of the whole market as of 2015.
