47 Pages - GLDATA58999


"Cigarettes in North Korea, 2017" is an analytical report by GlobalData that provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Uruguay 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.

North Korea's economy has been stagnating for more than a decade. Demand for cigarettes has until recently been in decline with this, no doubt a reflection of poor economic performance as well as government efforts to reduce the incidence of tobacco use. Imported cigarettes, assuming they remain in the country and are not re-exported to China via unofficial channels, have until very recently been available for sale in the free market zones where they have competed for market share. The majority of filter cigarettes are king size, with filter products reported to form over half of domestic production. Anecdotal evidence from visiting officials suggests that plain cigarettes are particularly popular among the comparatively poor mass population.


- Smoking is widespread among adult males although the habit is rare among women. BAT's venture, Taesong-BAT, was established in September 2001 with BAT taking a 60.0% stake in the local plant.
- The North Korean cigarette market remains poorly documented. Forecasts for 2025 are for a 1.0% rise in sales.
