Total worldwide cigarette volumes have been roughly flat since 2007 at around 5.6 - 5.7 trillion cigarettes. Steep declines in developed countries - including a fall of over 35% in the US since 1997 - have been offset by steady increases in emerging markets. China remains the world's single biggest market, accounting for almost 45% of total volumes in 2015, or 2.49 trillion cigarettes. It is followed by Russia (296bn cigarettes in 2015), the US (270bn), Indonesia (248bn) and Japan (182bn).
