Cigarettes in Mozambique, 2017


Cigarettes in Mozambique, 2017, is an analytical report by GlobalData that provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Mozambican market. The report analyzes the market size and structure, on both an overall and and per capita basis, based upon a unique combination of industry research, fieldwork, market sizing analysis, and our in-house expertise. Key companies and consumer trends are also analyzed.

Mozambique is one of the more promising markets for cigarettes in Africa because the country has been benefiting from relatively strong economic growth which, coupled with a rapidly expanding population, has boosted duty-paid cigarette sales. Nevertheless, the country remains poor with more than 70% of its population living below the poverty line. As such, cigarette volumes are still low compared to other emerging economies. But, recent economic reforms are having a positive impact on the tobacco market with a growing number of companies showing interest in Mozambique as future market and regional production center in Southern Africa. However, there are many problems facing cigarette manufacturers in the country, such as low consumption levels, lack of disposable income and widespread smuggling to and from the country.
