Azerbaijan is one of the more significant cigarette markets that emerged following the break-up of the former Soviet Union in the early 1990s. Since 2000, demand has largely been met by imports, with legitimate importers having great difficulty in competing against the non-duty paid sector due to high local excise taxes. In an attempt to reduce the incidence of tobacco use, a law prohibiting smoking in certain public places was introduced in July 2009. The law was poorly received with widespread reports that it is being flouted. A broadening of current regulations came into effect in 2017 with ever more places now covered by bans as well as new series of fines. Warnings were also toughened during 2017.
