Panama is one of the smaller cigarette markets in Central America aside from the passing trade that is conducted in the free zones along the Panama Canal.

Consumers switched to contraband because of the hike in Selective Consumption Tax (ISC) in July 2010.

  • Legitimate domestic sales have recently been in sharp decline in 2016, 58.7% down on 1990 levels, as a result of a surge in non-duty paid sales.
  • Production ceased in 1998 and the market is completel reliant on imports to meet cigaretteres demands.
