Cigarettes in Iran

Due to Iran's large population, over 80 million people, and relative prosperity in the region it has a large smoking population. It is estimated that the Iranian cigarette market is currently at 60-70 billion pieces per annum. However, the country suffers from a large contraband market due to smuggling from neighboring countries. As of 2014, non-duty paid cigarettes was 24 billion pieces a year, which is hindering the legitimate market substantially. However, the government has been tackling this problem in recent years, which has seen large declines in the number of non-duty paid cigarettes entering the market.
