Summary
The Belgian market has traditionally been linked to Luxembourg because of their customs unions, Union Economique de Belgique & Luxembourg, or UEBL, despite both countries having different taxes and market characteristics for cigarettes. The cigarette market is stable in the UEBL because of modest growth in Luxembourg and a small decline in Belgium. Both countries have relatively low taxes and prices on cigarettes, which means that cross-border shopping is still a large feature in the UEBL market, with many shoppers coming from the UK and France, for cheaper cigarettes. Most cigarettes sold in both countries are imports from Germany and the Netherlands, which has made international brands dominate in the market.

Key Findings
There are no cigarette produced in Belgium which means all cigarettes are imported from neighbouring countries, namely Luxembourg, Germany and the Netherlands.

Low priced brands are becoming more popular in Belgium and Luxembourg because of high prices and rising taxes

Smoking rates are declining in the UEBL area and as of 2014 only 15.9% of the total adult population are smokers, which is down 32% in 1990

PMI is the dominate cigarette manufacturer in Belgium with 41.7% of the market
