Executive Summary

Algeria has a population of 39 million and is is a substantial market for cigarettes. Following a period of instability, the country and cigarette market started to recover; legitimate sales rose by 6.1% in 2005, after the market was opened to imports, and by 2010, despite falling by 6.6% that year, stood at 24.74 billion pieces. Per capita consumption was at 747 pieces in 2014, 10.8% higher than 1990 levels.

Key Findings

The market is dominated by SNTA, which is a state monopoly and is the leading producer of cigarettes in the country in 2014.

Following the opening of the market to imports in 2005, and the arrival of a joint venture between SNTA and Arab investors, the competitive situation has changed, through local production and the import, initially of brands such as L&M and Marlboro.

The government has pledged that all state-owned enterprises, with the exception of the two energy companies-Sonatrack and Sonelgaz-will be sold off, but no decision has been taken yet on how or when the SNTA will be privatized.

The initial outlook for sales is likely to be poor, with relatively high contraband sales and the effect of a 10% tax increase in January 2015 expected to depress duty paid volumes.
