El Salvador is the smallest country in Central America with an equally small population of 6.1 million people. However, it has one of most developed economies in the region with a relatively large smoking population, almost a quarter of the adult population, making it an important market for cigarette companies. The market is dominated by two international companies, PMI and BAT, with a combined market share of 98.5%. The cigarette market is expected to decline in the country due to high prices, non-duty paid cigarettes, and greater anti-smoking laws, which will create struggling times ahead for manufacturers.

Key Findings
- Of the total adult population, 24.7% are smokers

- Per capita consumption is very low, by global standards, at 152 pieces

- PMI is the largest company in the market with 53.8% of sales, as of 2014, with 44.7% going to BAT and the final 1.5% made up of smaller manufacturers

- Contraband is expected to hinder the markets growth and, as of 2015, cigarette consumption stood at 900 million pieces
