Cigarettes in Madagascar

Cigarettes in Madagascar

The Madagascan cigarette market is small but growing, in overall volumes terms, despite low disposable income among many Madagascans. However, per capita consumption has decreased in recent years with the market growing because of a young and growing population. The market is dominated by SACIMEM (Société des Cigarettes Mélia de Madagascar), a subsidiary of Imperial Tobacco, with its domestically produced brands. International brands are too expensive for most consumers in the country and therefore only account for a small section of the overall market.

Key Findings
SACIMEM controls the vast majority of the cigarette market with 92.2% of the market as of 2013

Per capita consumption fell to 155 pieces a year in 2013, which is 8.8% lower than 1990 levels

Cigarette production increased to 3.6 billion pieces a year in 2013, which is a staggering 84.2% larger than 1990 production rates

The cigarette market is expected to grow to 5.4 billion pieces in 2023 due to a growing economy, higher per capita consumption rates and more disposable income
