Illicit trade accounted for 32% of cigarettes sales in 2014, with the state estimated to have lost TND300 million in revenue. The strong performance of illicit trade cigarettes has directly and negatively impacted duty-paid cigarettes, with a significant decrease in volume terms over the review period.

Competitive Landscape

In Tunisia, cigarettes continued to be dominated by the two state-owned companies, Régie Nationale des Tabacs et des Allumettes (RNTA) and Manufacture des Tabacs de Kairouan (MTK), which held a combined retail volume share of 74% in 2014.

Industry Prospects

Demand for duty-paid cigarettes is expected to continue to decline over the forecast period, as a result of further illicit trade volume growth. Another important factor that could affect demand for cigarettes over the forecast period could be any further increase in prices, with the Government considering increasing prices in order to cover the losses caused by smuggled products.
