Analysis fo the E-cigarette market
The major market driver for electronic cigarette is the rising health awareness around the world. For instance, the addiction to tobacco and many other toxins and carcinogenic chemicals that cause cancer and lung diseases are not found in e-cigarettes. The market has also seen substantial investments in the e-cigarette industry.
The increasing application of e-cigarettes as a smoking cessation tool is anticipated to boost the growth of the e-cigarette market further.
Tobacco manufacturers are constantly focusing on new developments in technology to have a lead over their rivals. This has encouraged e-cigarette vendors to spend more in R&D activities to create and innovate new varieties, compact vape designs and powerful battery packs to keep the e-cigarette industry competitive. Major tobacco companies have signed deals with product suppliers, innovators and e-cigarette flavouring specialists.
Furthermore, the increasing popularity of vaping products has also led to the introduction of new flavours and fragrances. Aromas such as menthol, mint, chocolate, cola and various fruit are being introduced to increasing numbers of customers. This trend is expected to continue and will contribute to the e-cigarette industry.
