Tobacco use remains somewhat limited in Angola, with cigarettes remaining the most popular category in 2021. Moreover, despite more stringent tobacco control legislation, attitudes towards tobacco remain relatively favourable, while cigarettes are largely affordable to most consumers.
In 2021, the COVID-19 pandemic is continuing to have an impact on tobacco in Angola. The main issue is due to the fact that most tobacco in the country is imported, and due to the restrictions of travel as a result of the pandemic, the price of both raw materials and brands have increased.
Tobacco use continues to play a significant role in Angolan society, although the review period saw changes in this respect as acceptance of smoking and tobacco use is declining. Nevertheless, Angola’s tobacco industry remains important to the national economy because it generates significant revenues for the government of Angola as well as employing numerous Angolans, both directly and indirectly.
Angola has a relatively low smoking prevalence compared to other markets with current trends indicating a decline in the number of older smokers, for health reasons, although first-time smokers are taking up the habit due to peer pressure. However, some sources have stated their belief that estimates vastly understate the real level of smoking prevalence.
Tobacco products are widely distributed in Angola. This is especially true for cigarettes, which are easily accessible in in urban areas.
