Per capita consumption stood at 1,535 pieces per year in 2015, a 0.9% decline on 2014.
Non-duty paid cigarettes only accounted for 5% of the market in 2014 after strong government action.
Cigarette imports have tripled since 1990 from five billion piecies to 14.9 billion pieces in 2014.
As of 2015, 16.8% of the Taiwanese population are smokers.


Taiwan has a sizeable cigarette market because of its wealthy population and economic growth, which have boosted cigarette consumption in recent decades. However, as the cigarette market is closely linked to the wider economy, it has periodically suffered from recessions, which had a negative effect. However, since 2014 the market has been relatively stable with more sustainable tobacco consumption due to measures limiting contraband and solid economic growth.

Taiwan, Republic of China, located in East Asia, is one of the region’s economic ‘tigers’ though sensitive relations between Taiwan and China remain the centre of political debate.

Despite loose diplomatic relations with many countries globally, Taiwan has recently signed trade agreements with some countries. A heavy focus on exports leave Taiwan’s economy open to changes in the global economy – it is particularly vulnerable to the current slowdown in China. A low birth rate along with an aging population also pose challenges to the success of the economy.

Taiwan’s key industries are electronics and machinery as well as textiles. Its main trading partners are China, the US and Japan.   Growth has stagnated since 2011 after a few years of negative growth due to the global recession. GDP is currently at 3% (2014). is a leading source of market research on Taiwan.

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.
