Cigarettes in Guatemala

Cigarettes in Guatemala

SummaryThe market has almost doubled in size since 1990; however, sales have been largely declining since 2006, due to a combination of rising prices, restrictions on smoking in public places, and very recently, a surge in non-duty paid sales. The market is characterized by full flavor, king size filter products that are mostly local American blend types. The vast majority of products sold originate from either Guatemala or Honduras, which are the respective bases of PMI and BAT.

Key FindingsGuatemala is the largest and most populous of the Central American countries but it has a comparatively small cigarette market that is currently showing signs of decline

The presence of contraband remains a major problem in the Guatemalan market. Belize and the Corozal Free Trade Zone are the main sources for contraband cigarettes entering Guatemala, and Paraguay, China, and Vietnam are the main suppliers.

The market is dominated by blond cigarettes; the majority are local blend, with a moderate and slowly expanding presence for international American blend brands and regional brands.

The market is dominated by filter cigarettes, the vast majority being long size filter products.
