Cigarettes in Georgia

Cigarettes in Georgia

Georgia is a relatively prosperous Caucasian nation and as such has high rates of smoking, with over two million people smoking out of a population of 10 million. The domestic market has recovered from its near collapse in the early 90s, but is still a fraction of the 1990 production. The ‘grey’ market is large in the country due to porous borders and generally high taxes, which encourages non-duty paid Cigarette smuggling.

Key Findings

Of that, 56% of the male population smoke in Georgia

Domestic production is low with imports, both legal and illegal, dominating the Cigarette market
