The Kuwaiti cigarette market reflects the preferences of others in the Gulf region, with a strong emphasis on American blends. Filter cigarettes account for 100% of sales; king size lengths are by far the most popular with 90% of sales. There is growing demand for 1mg strength cigarettes, which comprise over 10% of sales in Kuwait. With no local manufacturers, Kuwait is entirely supplied by imports. These are led by PMI.

Key Findings
- The Kuwaiti cigarette market stands at over four billion pieces annually and is entirely supplied by imports

- The market is quite well-developed in terms of strength segmentation, partly as a result of the low maximum levels now prevailing

- With increasingly tougher regulations on smoking in public places now in place, the outlook for the Kuwaiti cigarette market will become increasingly difficult, particularly with expected tax rises. Consumption is forecast to decline to just over three billion pieces by 2025
