As a result of increasing competition and growing consumer demand for different e-liquid flavors, the U.S. e-liquid market is poised to grow over $4.77 billion by 2025 at a double digit CAGR from 2015 to 2025.

The report titled U.S. E-liquid Market: Focus on Type, Origin, Geography, and Distribution Channel: Analysis & Forecast, 2016-2025 includes a thorough analysis of the push and pull forces influencing the widespread adoption of e-liquids in the U.S. 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 U.S. is the largest revenue generating market for e-cigarettes and vaporizers globally and the exponential market growth has brought about a surge in the demand for e-liquid in the country. While new consortiums and alliances are being formed to either promote or bring down the growing popularity of e-liquids, an increasing number of convenience stores and online retailers are enhancing their e-liquid product offerings.
