GCC Illicit Tobacco Indicator 2017

New analysis from Oxford Economics show that incidence of illicit tobacco across four GCC markets (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait and Oman) has increased in recent years – having been just 1.2% of Total Consumption in 2016, the Illicit Incidence rose to 1.6% of Total Consumption in 2017 and to 5.3% in the first half of 2018.
