Some Research and Expert Clients


The local market is dominated by filter cigarettes, which account for virtually 100% of sales or 2.87 billion pieces in 2014. Most of the industrial activity in the Singapore cigarette market is centered on the import and re-export of cigarettes. The market has been almost entirely contested between three companies: Philip Morris Singapore (PMI), British American Tobacco Singapore (BAT) and Japan Tobacco International (JTI). The most significant development of recent years has been the emergence of the low priced sector.  


Singapore is important as a major distribution center for the Asia-Pacific region, but its relatively small population, currently around 5.7 million, means it has only a small domestic cigarette market. Annual per capita consumption levels are relativelylow in regional terms, averaging 514 pieces in 2014. However, the effects of the economic difficulties, increased taxes, high non-duty paid sales, competition from RYO cigarettes, and a tightening of restrictions on tobacco consumption have depressed demand for manufactured cigarettes.

The tobacco industry is worth approximately a half a trillion dollars with the top US tobacco companies posting profits of $35billion according to The Tobacco Atlas. 

China is the largest producer and consumer of tobacco. However, the Chinese government has recently cracked down on smoking in public places in an effort to curb the practice which is placing a huge burden on the Chinese health system.

Despite international government restrictions on smoking tobacco consumption has continued to rise due to increased consumption in developing countries.

One of the main threats to the industry is the development of the e-cigarette which has seen sales jump to almost US$1billion in five years. This new and healthier means of consuming nicotine plus an increased crackdown by governments globally pose the biggest threats to the industry.

Research and Experts provide information on the latest trends and statistics on the tobacco industry.
