Tobacco is major agricultural product in many countries in the world. Depending on climate
conditions, it is either exceptionally popular or marginally represented. At world level, the
annual tobacco production ranges from 6.500.000 to 7.000.000 t. Within this range is the
final production of cigarettes which, by acceptance of the American blend, becomes more
and more globalized.Trade with raw tobacco in the world is fairly stable, with a balance
between supply and demand. The market is traditional and in most cases perfectly defined.
Over 95% of tobacco production is spent on cigarette production and the remaining 5% on
other tobacco products.
Macedonia has stabilized its tobacco production at approximately 25.000-30.000 tons, with a
tendency to improve the quality as much as possible.Macedonia is a country with its own
strategy and it will not accept to reduce tobacco production, because replacement of tobacco
with another crop will not provide existence to tobacco growers, having in mind the climate
conditions and the economic impact. In regions where tobacco is grown, climate and soil
conditions are unfavorable for other crops. Regarding the economic impact, production of a
new crop will be accepted only if it is profitable replacement for tobacco that will provide
existence to growers, which is hardly believable.
