Estonia is the smallest of the three Baltic states, along with Latvia and Lithuania, but with a sizeable cigarette market despite its small population of 1.3 million people. Historically, cigarette consumption has been high in Estonia but due to rising prices and non-duty paid contraband cigarettes, from Russia and Belarus, legitimate consumption has drastically declined in recent years from 3.5 billion pieces in 2007 to 1.8 billion pieces in 2015. Contraband is a massive hindrance to the market because of high prices and extra government taxes on cigarettes. As of 2015, contraband accounts for 16.4% of the entire market.
