It is widely available across the globe in multiple variants that differ on the basis of shapes and sizes. The easy product availability via the online and offline distribution channels is providing a boost to the sales of e-cigarettes worldwide.

Global E-Cigarette Market Trends:
The global market is primarily driven by the increasing number of smokers. This can be accredited to the shifting lifestyle preferences and the inflating disposable income levels of the masses, which is creating a positive market outlook. Since e-cigarettes are reusable and cost-efficient as compared to conventional cigarettes, there has been a considerable rise in their adoption among individuals, especially young adults. Moreover, several leading manufacturers are heavily investing in continuous product innovations, such as launching e-cigarettes with a hit control feature for controlling the nicotine delivery. Besides this, the introduction of tobacco heating systems that produce nicotine-containing emissions without burning the tobacco is further gaining widespread prominence among smokers. Other factors, including rapid urbanization, the availability of a wide range of flavors and fragrances, the rising adoption of innovative and premium packaging solutions, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players, are also positively influencing the market growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 30 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.5% during 2022-2027.
