Cigarettes in Georgia, 2019

"Cigarettes in Georgia, 2019", is an analytical report by GlobalData that provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Georgian tobacco market. It covers market size and structure along with per capita and overall consumption. Additionally, it focuses on brand data, retail pricing, prospects, and forecasts for sales and consumption until 2028.

Georgia remains one of the more difficult of the former Soviet markets for which to determine consumption levels with any precision, due to the paucity of accurate volume data relating to official imports of cigarettes into the country, and the very substantial level of contraband and unrecorded trade. Cigarette consumption declined during the 1990s as a result of the rapid contraction in the economy, with the economic collapse culminating in a hyperinflationary spiral during 1993 and 1994, when inflation reached an annual rate of 15,607%.

Scope

- The Georgian cigarette market consists of a mix of imported international brands and local brands, with overall imports, comprising both legitimate and illegal imports, accounting for 94.4% of overall market volumes in 2017.

- Import patterns since 2003 have shown the main source of legitimate imports to be overwhelmingly Ukraine, followed at some distance by Bulgaria, South Korea, France, and Germany.

- Imports attract a duty rate of 12% (MFN rates) as of March 2019, with this rate unchanged for a number of years.

- The price of tobacco products and cigarettes has recently been increasing. Prices were raised by 25% in September 2014, as a result of an increase in excise duties.
