Executive Summary

Zambia is a large and relatively prosperous country in southern Africa with a moderately sized cigarette market. The cigarette market is intrinsically linked to the country's economic performance and as a result has experienced high levels of growth in recent years. The market reached a peak of 1.5 billion pieces in 2013 due to the strong Zambian economy and the introduction of the minimum wage. However, tax rises, contraband from Zimbabwe, and the growth of RYO tobacco is hindering the cigarette market's ability to grow legitimately in the country. Overall, the market is expected to decline in the short term but see modest growth in the long term as consumers' disposable incomes also grow.

Key Findings

BAT Zambia controls most of the market with 89.6% share as of 2015.

Of the Zambian population, 12.2% smoke, as of 2014, which is relatIvely high for an African nation.

Cigarette production ceased in 2007 and the market is served wholly by imports.

Market volume stands at 1.4 billion pieces as of 2015.
