Cigarettes in Kyrgyzstan, 2019

Cigarettes in Kyrgyzstan, 2019


Cigarettes in Kyrgyzstan, 2019, is an analytical report by GlobalData that provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Kyrgyzstani tobacco market. It covers market size and structure along with per capita and overall consumption. Additionally, it focuses on brand data, retail pricing, prospects, and forecasts for sales and consumption until 2028.

Trade sources indicate that the overall market for cigarettes in Kyrgyzstan has recently been as large as 8-8.5 billion pieces per annum, including illegal supplies. However, the true market size is difficult to determine due to the very substantial levels of private imports and non-duty paid cigarettes reaching the market through cross border trade. Estimates of overall consumption are largely dependent on what estimates are made on the level of non-duty paid supplies and unrecorded imports entering the market.


  • Per capita consumption of cigarettes was estimated to have averaged 1,106 pieces in 1990, but then fell steadily through the early and mid-1990s after the collapse of the former Soviet Union.
  • Domestically produced cigarettes recorded a dramatic fall in their share since 2009, when they held 70% of sales, to account for only a third of sales in 2011 and a 10th of sales in 2013. The market has been dominated by imports since 2015.
  • Following the closure of the Reemtsma Kyrgyzstan OJSC factory in 2014, there has been no local production.
  • Import duty is applicable to cigarettes entering Kyrgyzstan and stands at €2 per 1,000 pieces for Most Favored Nations (April 2019).
