Cigarettes in Croatia

Cigarettes in Croatia

The cigarette market in Croatia is one of the larger of the former Yugoslav states, but it is experiencing long-term decline because of rising taxes, anti-smoking laws, and lower smoking incidences. This is compounded by relatively high rates of cigarette smuggling, like in other Balkan countries, which is further hindering the legitimate cigarette market. The market leader, and the biggest domestic cigarette producer, is TDR (owned by BAT since 2015) with over half of the duty-paid market.

Key Findings
As of 2014, TDR controlled 57% of the Croatian cigarette market

Per capita consumption is relatively high, at 1,229 pieces in 2013

Although the smoking rates are declining in Croatia, they are still quite high standing at 28.9% of the total adult population

Imports have greatly increased in recent years due to EU membership and the lowering of tariffs
