This report is part of the project The Factbook on the Illicit Trade in Tobacco Products (hereafter ITTP). It focuses on Spain, where the illicit trade in tobacco products is an emerging issue, particularly in certain regions. After tax increases in 2009-2010, Spain became a destination market of illicit tobacco and the ITTP penetration peaked at 8.8% in 2013. Nevertheless, the ITTP level is lower than the European average. In the past, ITTP penetration had decreased from 6% to almost 1% between 1998 and 2010, due to the successful enforcement actions against contraband. Spain used to be a transit country.
