By 2012 consumption was up to 5.1 billion pieces, 311.7% above 1990 levels although 2013 estimates suggest sales will fall 4% because of recent excise tax rises to end 2013 at 4.9 billion pieces.Long-term prospects remain relatively positive, not least due to strong population expansion and further buoyant GDP growth.
