Cigarettes in Kuwait, 2019

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.

Kuwait is one of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states. The cigarette market has been growing strongly in recent years and stood at 6.600 million pieces in 2017, 298.0% above levels at the beginning of the 1990s. Per capita consumption, estimated at 2,313 pieces per year in 2017, is high by regional standards and 195.4% ahead of levels in 1990.

Scope

- The incidence of smoking is relatively high, standing at an estimated 21.9% in 2018.

- With no local manufacturers, Kuwait is entirely supplied by imports. These are led by PMI, which was credited with a high share of sales in 2016; Marlboro is by far the most popular brand.

- GlobalData’s forecast for 2018 is somewhat pessimistic, following the recent enforcement of a public smoking ban with fines for offenders and rising prices. The impact of a doubling of excise duty is expected to help reduce sales which are forecast down at 6.500 million pieces.

- Shortages of cigarettes in early 2018 are understood to have led to hoarding and the illegal hiking of prices by retailers of between 20% and 30%.
