Summary The Portuguese cigarette market was growing but rising taxation, combined with cross border trade and smuggling, stronger sales of RYO, and the impact of the recent global financial crisis have been depressing Portugal's cigarette market. In contrast with trends between 1990 and 2003, when market volumes grew by 20% to a peak of 18.84 billion pieces, the market has slumped and was down to 10.25 billion pieces in 2014, or 34.7% below 1990 levels. Per capita consumption rates are all falling back and averaged 946 pieces in 2014, well down on the peak 2003 levels of 1,797 pieces/year. The market is mostly served by domestic production, with Tabaqueira, owned by PMI, the sole cigarette manufacturer on the Portuguese mainland, although there are two small producers based in Madeira and the Azores that focus on supplying local demand on these islands.
