Cigarettes in the Czech Republic

Cigarettes in the Czech Republic

The Czech Republic’s cigarette market is relatively large despite its small population of 10.2 million. However, the legitimate cigarette market has experienced steady and long term decline due to high tax rises to meet the EU tobacco directives. Despite this, cigarette consumption stands at 19.76 billion pieces as of 2015 because of the country’s strong tobacco tradition and the relatively friendly cigarette laws. Contraband sales have been a persistent problem to the market since the Czech Republic’s ascension to the EU in 2004, with contraband accounting for 2.2% of the market in 2014. In the long term, the market will have to cope with greater restrictions on smoking and extra tax hikes which are designed to limit cigarette consumption.

Key Findings
Per capita cigarette consumption grew in 2015 to 1,884 pieces per year but is still lower than 2,299 pieces in 2007.

PMI dominates the market with a 44.8% share in 2015; however this share has declined from 80.8% in 2001.

34.5% of the total Czech population smoke, as of 2015.

Men are far more likely to smoke, 51.2%, compared to women, 19.3%, as of 2015.
