Albania Cigarettes, 2020 is an analytical report by the publisher that provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Albanian 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.

Albania is a significant market for cigarettes, although recent years have seen the non-duty paid sector grow its presence to an extent that it now dominates sales. Trade sources suggest that, despite the economic uncertainties of the 1990s, the duty paid market for cigarettes has grown. In large part, this is likely to be supply-related and accounted for by a considerable amount of imports entering the country. Yet the higher overall price of legitimate imports still puts them beyond the reach of many Albanians. However, since the contraband sector has been generally reduced in scale over recent years, overall consumption has declined.

  • Albania has one of the highest incidences of smoking in Europe.
  • The collapse of the country's domestic cigarette manufacturing industry has increased demand for blended cigarettes, particularly from Greece and the US.
  • Illegally imported brands have a high profile.
