World Cigarettes Bulgaria

The profile of contraband is expected to diminish although not significantly and duty paid sales will continue to be under pressure. By 2022 sales are expected to be up by around 15% on 2012 levels at around 13 billion pieces.Volumes for 2012 are more positive with stabilisation in prices following the 2010 tax hike and some success in reducing the profile of contraband both benefiting the market. Volumes are up by around 6% to 11.6 billion pieces. However, the market is expected to contract in 2013 as a result of the poor economic situation, rising unemployment, the public smoking ban and the prevalence of contraband.Subsequently the level has declined quite noticeably to around 1,534 pieces per year in 2011 before recovering somewhat in 2012. Contraband sales are probably the single most important factor in the decline in per capita rates.
