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.

Cigarette consumption is estimated to have declined during the 1990s as a result of the rapid contraction in the economy. Legitimate sales were estimated at 7.80 billion pieces in 2016, 30.3% below 1990 levels.

Volumes are expected to slip back by 5.8% although thereafter will recover reaching a forecast 8,140 million pieces in 2026. Per capita consumption will follow a similar pattern over the same period ending 2026 up 4.4% at 1,651 pieces.
