While established tobacco giants have ventured into the western vaporizer markets through a series of acquisitions and product launches, the APAC e-cigarette industry is devoid of any big foreign names, instead consisting of a multitude of small locally manufactured brands. The industry is unable to harness the advantages of trusted and known brands, access to pre-established distribution channels and financial resources available with big transnational players. However, the low levels of entry barriers in the form of paltry capital requirements and absence of regulations have enabled a large number of players to enter the market, which have become its driving force.
The report titled the “APAC E-cigarette and Vaporizer, Device and Aftermarket, Analysis and Forecast - 2016-2025” includes a thorough analysis of the push and pull forces influencing the widespread adoption of e-cigarette devices and components. Moreover, special emphasis has been laid on current and future opportunities, prevalent distribution channels and impediments to successful growth of the market. Furthermore, considering the dependency of the market growth on the legal and regulatory framework and government initiatives, the report at each step has considered the effect of these factors
The APAC e-cigarette market currently valued at $840.3 million contributes a very small percentage in the global e-cigarette market. As the proliferation of e-cigarettes in the region increases and Asia Pacific (APAC) market gains momentum this share is expected to increase to around 27% by 2025.
