Introduction

The electronic cigarette (e-cig) market has been slowly developing and is starting to gain some traction in some regional markets, with the UK expected to top 1 million users in 2012, while by comparison the UK’s population is estimated to hold around 12 million tobacco smokers. This represents a potentially major shift, and the e-cig market may eventually come to replace the tobacco industry.

Highlights

An e-cig is a new product which replicates the sensation of smoking and delivers to the user a small dose of nicotine that can satiate cravings. This market makes some bold claims as to the health benefits and cost savings to smokers over normal tobacco.

The tobacco industry is undergoing some major changes. In many areas the value of the product is growing but there is a volume drop, meaning tobacco is getting more expensive. READ MORE >
