The cigarette market in Mexico is very large due to its young and growing population, which stood at over 122 million people as of 2013. Cigarettes are mostly consumed by urban middle class consumers, which is a unique trend compared to most other nations because the high prices and taxes prohibit poorer Mexicans from smoking. The market is chiefly dominated by two manufacturers, Philip Morris Mexico and BAT Mexico, with both companies producing cigarettes in the country making imports negligible. Overall, the cigarette market is experiencing long term decline because of high prices, growing health awareness, and government initiatives to curb smoking rates.
