Cigarettes in Cuba, 2017

Summary

Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean and one of the larger markets for cigarettes in the region. Since the early 1990s, cigarette sales have been affected by a combination of local production problems, the erratic performance of the economy, and by tighter sanctions from the US. In 2016, sales stood at 12.8 billion pieces or 80.9% of their level in 1990. Per capita consumption is relatively high by Latin American standards, but recorded 1,163 pieces per capita per year in 2016, which represents a 22.8% drop since 1990.

Cuba has introduced a range of bans and restrictions on tobacco consumption that are set to place a limit on the future expansion of the market. The most significant is a ban on smoking in public places from February 2005. A national program on tobacco control was introduced in 2010.

Cuban cigarette market is set to encounter a more difficult trading climate in the future, as a result of the tighter restrictions introduced on the use of tobacco products. Equally significant is the withdrawal of rationed cigarettes in 2010 and the impact this had on consumption. However, a major benefit for the market is the recent improvement in relations with the US, which is set to see a major injection of capital into the economy and an improvement in GDP growth. Overall sales are forecast at just under 12.7 billion pieces by 2026, which is 1% below 2016, while per capita consumption is expected to be up by 1.3%, to 1,178 pieces a year.

Changes made by the Cuban government to ease supply problems have resulted in a market that now supports a free sector. While cigarettes sold in the free market system are more expensive, they took 12.7% of the market by volume in 2001, with this figure rising to 15% more recently. This is largely because of the strong demand for high quality brands and the willingness of some Cubans to pay a premium for quality.
