Cigarettes in Hungary, 2016


Cigarettes in Hungary, 2016 is an analytical report by GlobalData that provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Spanish market. The report offers Market size and structure of the overall and per capita consumption based upon a unique combination of industry research, fieldwork, market sizing analysis, and our in-house expertise.

The market structure changed in 2004 from one dominated by domestic manufacturers to one split between domestic production and legitimate imports when both PMI and Imperial Tobacco closed their local plants. Contraband remains a problem, with neighboring countries such as Belarus and Ukraine important transit points. A more significant threat to manufactured cigarettes is the sharp rise in consumption of other tobacco products, principally RYO/MYO, over the last few years, as consumers have tried to sidestep the high costs of smoking.


  • The impact of further tax-induced price rises is set to reduce duty paid sales further over 2015-2025.
  • Non-duty paid market has contracted by 5 times over 2004-2014.
  • BAT & PMI have major shares in the Hungarian Cigarette market.
  • From January 1, 2016, the price of a pack of cigarettes increased by the equivalent of €0.64 as a result of a rise in the rate of tobacco duty.
