The Libyan Arab Jamahiriya State (Libya), which was under the effective dictatorship of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi for 42 years from 1969, ended when Gaddafi was captured and killed by Libyan National Liberation Army forces on October 20, 2011. The economic situation has been severely weakened by the civil war and the sharp fall in oil exports following the attacks on oil production facilities, which were helping the economy to recover. After doubling in 2012, real GDP continued to grow by 5.1% in 2013 but growth fell back sharply in 2014 with real GDP dropping by 24%, followed by a further decline by 6.4% in 2015 and a 3.3% decline provisionally estimated for 2016. However, an upturn was projected for 2017, with real GDP reported to have risen by 70.8%, although growth is projected to slow to 16.4% in 2018 and further to just 1.4% in 2019, according to the latest economic forecasts.

  • Market volumes are tentatively forecast to increase by 15.9% to reach 9.9 billion pieces by 2027. Annual per capita consumption is forecast to rise by 2.2%, to a projected 1,306 pieces by 2027. Much of the internal volume growth is expected to come from a reduction in the non-duty paid sector and the market will continue to be supplied by imports for the foreseeable future, with the overall level of imports likely to continue to include substantial volumes destined for consumption in other markets, due to the open borders.
