Cigarettes in El Salvador

Cigarettes in El Salvador

El Salvador is the smallest country in Central America with an equally small population of 6.1 million people. However, it has one of most developed economies in the region with a relatively large smoking population, almost a quarter of the adult population, making it an important market for cigarette companies. The market is dominated by two international companies, PMI and BAT, with a combined market share of 98.5%. The cigarette market is expected to decline in the country due to high prices, non-duty paid cigarettes, and greater anti-smoking laws, which will create struggling times ahead for manufacturers.

Key Findings

Per capita consumption is very low, by global standards, at 152 pieces

PMI is the largest company in the market with 53.8% of sales, as of 2014, with 44.7% going to BAT and the final 1.5% made up of smaller manufacturers
