However, in per capita terms consumption is relatively high, although legal consumption levels have fallen in the past few years in the wake of excise duty led price increases. Illicit sales, while suppressed in recent years, expand in response to rising taxes and prices. Illicit sales, while suppressed in recent years, expand in response to rising taxes and prices. Contraband and counterfeit trade had accounted for 6.2% of overall consumption in 2015.

Key Findings
The duty paid market is dominated by filter cigarettes with American blends popular. There is a strong trend towards light brands which account for nearly 60% of the market.

The country is now supplied entirely from imported cigarettes, although some local brand names have been maintained.

The government has introduced relatively tight restrictions on the promotion and use of tobacco products. These were strengthened in August 2007 with a complete ban on smoking in public places and an increase in the age at which cigarettes can be purchased to 18.
