Cigarettes in Costa Rica, 2018


"Cigarettes in Costa Rica, 2018", is an analytical report that provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Costa Rican market. The report offers Market size and structure of the overall and per capita consumption based upon a unique combination of industry research, fieldwork, market sizing analysis, and our in-house expertise.

Costa Rica is a relatively small market for cigarettes with legitimate sales of 1.5 billion pieces in 2017, which is 27.1% down its levels in 1990. In per capita terms, consumption is moderate to low at 310 pieces per person in 2017, while per capita sales have fallen by 55.4% since 1990. There is a growing non-duty paid market, which amounts to a further 445 million pieces, bringing total annual sales to approximately two billion pieces.

  • Following the closure of BAT's manufacturing facility in Costa Rica in 2000, the company transferred production to its subsidiary in Honduras.
  • Taxation has been a key tool for the authorities to reduce tobacco consumption. There is now reported to be a sizeable, but largely unquantified, sector comprising non-duty paid cigarettes, with this seeming to be taking a growing percentage of sales from the legitimate sector.
