Cigarettes in Iraq

Cigarettes in Iraq

Iraq has been in a state of political and social turmoil since the second Gulf war in 2003. As a result, the country has suffered extensive economic damage, which has suppressed the cigarette market with local production not functioning at normal capacity. Consequently, the market has been serviced by imports, both duty paid and non-duty paid, which has meant that many brands are too expensive for Iraqi consumers. The non-duty paid sector accounted for 25% of the total cigarette market in 2015 because of widespread smuggling and high prices for legal cigarettes.

Key Findings
Cigarette consumption, in million pieces, was 22,700 in 2015 which is 5.1% improved on 2014 but still below 26,098 during the 1990s. Of the total cigarettes market, 25% is made up of non-duty paid cigarettes.
Imperial Tobacco dominates the market with a 25% share, as of 2010.
As of 2014, 19.5% of the total adult population smoke with 36% of men and only 3% of women smoking.
