Taiwan Cigarettes, 2020 is an analytical report that provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Taiwanese tobacco market. 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 2029.

Taiwan has a sizeable cigarette market in both absolute and per capita terms, although recently there has been evidence of a consistent decline in sales. Sales showed steady growth during the 1990s but they contracted dramatically in2002 as a reaction to price increases and the growth in contraband following Taiwan's accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO). Further hoarding occurred in 2005 in advance of the Health Tax increase implemented in 2006. This inevitably led to a loss of market volume in 2006. A rise followed in 2008, but in 2009 the impact of new smoking restrictions led to a fall in volumes. Further difficulties for the sector have followed since resulting in volumes down in 2018.

  • The taiwanese market has significantly decreased over the past two decades.
  • Domestic brands hold a majority share of the market compared to import brands in 2018.
  • JTI is the key brand, followed by TTLC.
