Cigarettes in Jamaica, 2020

Cigarettes in Jamaica, 2020 is an analytical report by GlobalData that provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the tobacco market in Jamaica. 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 2030.

The Jamaican cigarette market is small with duty paid consumption falling dramatically in recent years; it was estimated at 520 million pieces in 2019 which is 60% down on sales in 1990. Recent increases in Special Consumption Tax (SCT) in particular have done much to dent duty paid sales, stimulating the non-duty paid sector as well as loose tobacco use. A recent suspension of these increases appears to have brought about stability to the market since 2017. Per capita consumption, at 185 pieces in 2019, is 33.4% of that seen in 1990.


– 2019 sales is forecast to reach 520 million pieces, to take volumes to 40% of their level in 1990.

– West Indies Tobacco Company is the leading manufacturer with sales and shares of 480 million pieces and 92.3% in 2019.
