North Korean General Tobacco Corporation (NKGTC) is the state-owned tobacco monopoly organization. It has traditionally dominated the cigarette market in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea), which was created in 1948 after the Korean War. As of 2015, its share had fallen to 43% with the Jilin joint venture companies having market leadership with 50%.
- The ban on the legitimate import of cigarettes, which was imposed by the country in 2014, effectively means the market is closed to foreign manufacturers unless they are involved with local joint ventures.
- There are three major cigarette factories operated by the NKGTC, although the company is also understood to operate a number of others around the country.
- Few details are known of North Korean cigarette manufacturing capacity, although production levels are reported to have risen to between 25 and 30 billion pieces per year.
