Executive Summary

Cigarettes in Bulgaria, 2017


"Cigarettes in Bulgaria, 2017", is an analytical report by GlobalData that provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in Bulgaria.

Bulgaria has traditionally had one of the highest rates of per capita cigarette consumption, with the duty paid rate peaking in 2008. However, the collapse of the duty paid sector since 2009 and the consequent rise in contraband reduced legitimate consumption levels dramatically. Better market controls, and in 2016 the benefit of pre-tax increase purchasing, lifted per capita consumption rates. Overall, duty paid sales amounted to over 13 billion pieces in 2016, with contraband accounting for a reduced amount of overall consumption.

Tax increases have had a major impact on duty paid sales in recent years, with volumes down noticeably since 2008. The profile of contraband is expected to diminish, although not significantly, and duty paid sales will continue to be under pressure, due to plans to increase excise rates again in 2017 and 2018.

Overall, duty paid sales amounted to 13.83 billion pieces in 2016, with contraband accounting for a reduced 7% of overall consumption.

Bulgaria has traditionally had one of the highest rates of per capita cigarette consumption, with the duty paid rate peaking in 2008.

There has been a trend away from traditional oriental or semi-oriental blends towards American blend and Virginia cigarettes, due to changing consumer tastes and the influx of imported international brands.
