Greece was one of the fastest growing cigarette markets in the 1990s, with expansion continuing for much of the early part of the 2000s. However, the market is no longer growing, suffering its tenth successive year-on-year decline in sales during 2014. Papastratos had long been the leading Greek manufacturer by virtue of its licensing arrangements with PMI, whereby it produces Marlboro, the leading brand, for the local market. Forecasts for the Greek market are for further falls in sales to 13.94 billion pieces in 2025.

Key Findings
With falling duty paid sales, the level of smoking has declined with per capita sales down to 1,607 pieces by 2014. Total smoker numbers have been largely stable during the past decade, suggesting that while duty paid sales are in decline, the overall consumption of cigarettes and smoking tobacco has remained stable

PMI acquired Papastratos at the end of 2003 and as a result saw its share reach 37.9% in 2014

Tax rises and aggressive pricing by manufacturers have pushed value brands such as Karelia and Winston to the fore, with momentum spurred further by the current economic crisis. Imperial's Davidoff has also been making steady progress, suggesting a polarization between premium and value brands
