Asia Pacific (APAC) region has a large number of smokers, despite this fact, the e-cigarette and vaporizer market has not gained as much popularity in the region as compared to the western countries, and is still at a nascent stage. Many associations and consortiums are now engaged in educating the populace of this region about the advantages and variety of e-cigarettes and vaporizers, as people lack the knowledge about e-cigarettes and its market. Despite regulations introduced to control tobacco consumption in countries like China, India and Indonesia, the number of smokers has increased considerably since 2006.
Since the last few years, the market for electronic cigarette, or commonly known as e-cigarette, has been propelling at a significant rate, due to the fact that numerous people have shifted their loyalties from traditional smoking to the newly emerged concept of vaping. However, keeping aside the fact that e-cigarettes are increasingly becoming mainstream; a number of public health debates are emerging around the potential risk of misinterpreting vaping to be safer than conventional smoking.
The electronic cigarette market is on the course of gradual advancement despite the lack of uniformity regarding its regulations in the global market. The electronic cigarette, or e-cigarette, is a battery-operated device used to emulate the overall conventional experience of smoking, by emitting variable doses of nicotine and non-nicotine solutions that are inhaled instead of burning tobacco.
