Market Report, "World Cigarettes Venezuela", published

World Cigarettes Venezuela focuses on the extent to which the market has evolved during the last twelve years in line with changing smoking habits in Venezuela, the competitive environment and economic developments. The end result is an accurate and objective interpretation of market trends (since 1990) and directions, assessing underlying currents of change and projecting the market scenarios of the future, providing forecasts to 2022.

Key Findings
In 1990 Venezuelan cigarette sales were 15.6 billion pieces but by 2012 they were down to just under 7 billion pieces. Illegal sales are currently flourishing, accounting for 22.5% of overall sales in 2012, up from 17% the previous year.

Full Report Details at

Smoking prevalence has traditionally been high and is, unusually, just as high among women as men. However, smoking rates have declined in both groups although the smoking population, at 5 million in 2012, is still up 13.5% on 1990 levels. Due to the sharp contraction of sales in 2011 and 2012, the market is expected to grow over the next decade with volumes increasing by 20% from the 2012 low to 8.34 billion pieces.
