Globally, awareness about health concerns due to smoking has been increasing. This has resulted in the development of alternatives that help consumers to quit traditional cigarettes.

E-cigarettes eliminate the risk of cancer and prevent the intake of more than 4,000 chemicals, which are produced by burning of tobacco cigarettes.
Additionally, smoke generated from burning tobacco is equally harmful to humans as it is to the environment. E-cigarettes eliminate the emission of smoke, and instead, produce mist, which easily dissolves in air within seconds. This reduces the side-effects of smoking e-cigarette to a great extent. Apart from this, it also eliminates the need for dumping cigarette butts and flicking ash openly. Such factors promote safe smoking and are driving the global e-cigarette market.
E-cigarettes are being adopted by consumers as an alternative to tobacco cigarettes, as they are considered to be less toxic and safer than conventional cigarettes. Consumers are focusing on replacing conventional cigarettes with healthier and less chemical vaping technology, which will pose ample of growth opportunities for market players in the coming years.
The e-cigarette market has potential growth opportunities in untapped emerging economies of APAC, Latin America and Africa regions. Tobacco companies and e-cigarette manufacturers in these regions are expanding their business to achieve greater reach for their products through various channels, including e-commerce, retail partners, and grocery stores. Apart from this, companies are also acquiring local and national distributors of e-cigarettes to distribute their products in dedicated markets.
Innovations and advancements in technology are expected to pave the way for next-generation products. Traditional tobacco manufacturers across the globe are moving into design, development, production, and sale of vaping products because of the increased interest of people in these products and the growing demand for tobacco cigarette alternatives.
Besides, tobacco companies are entering into agreements with other companies to increase their business, including agreements based on raw material supply, patents, product rights, and other regulating factors.
Some of the key players operating in the e-cigarette market are British American Tobacco plc, Altria Group Inc., Japan Tobacco Inc., Imperial Brands plc, Philip Morris International Inc., VMR Products LLC, NJOY Inc, International Vapor Group, Vapor Hub International, Inc., and FIN Branding Group LLC.
