The Vaporizer Era is here and its starting to sweep the globe, leaving behind its predecessor the Portable Vaporizer. The Vaporizer Era introduced a new way to partake in vaporizing, one that was better for your body and the environment. The original Vaporizers emitted toxic smoke which could not only harm you when inhaling but also caused some nasty odors around you. The original vaporizers also only produced a very small amount of vapor, often times too little to even notice. Both of these issues have been addressed with the newer models, the Portable Vaporizer and the Aura Vaporizer.
While vaporizers have come a long way since their introduction, they still remain relatively untapped. The two most common styles of vaporizers, the Portable Vaporizer and the Aura Vaporizer, both feature their own distinct advantages. The former has a lot more going for it, boasting advanced temperature control and a larger selection of e-liquid flavors. This allows a user to experiment with various brands and flavors without fear of affecting their experience. The Aura Vaporizer also boasts a number of special features and functions, many of which are built into the unit itself.
The British American Tobacco Company (BITC) made history when they were the first to introduce a product that combines vapor production and electronic smoking. The Altria Group, which includes all of the major Altria Groups including the Altria Group Europe, worked with the British American Tobacco Company to produce the Vaporesso. The Vaporesso was an electronic cigarette that contained not only nicotine but also propylene glycol (a flavorless ingredient used in certain fruit juices), as well as synthetic vitamin B. Altria claimed that the Vaporesso performed better than standard cigarettes at eliminating withdrawal symptoms that occur with regular cigarettes. Propylene glycol is used because it has a longer lasting effect on the body than nicotine, eliminating any uncomfortable after effects that plague smokers who quit.
When the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the Vaporesso, it was hailed as a breakthrough for the e-liquid industry. The FDA thought that the combination of nicotine and propylene glycol in the e-liquid helped alleviate some of the health issues associated with smoking cigarettes. The Altria Group, which includes Altria, respects the FDA’s decision and has begun producing an array of different liquids that take after the Vaporesso formula.
In South Korea, a similar formula was manufactured under license by another company. It didn’t take long before the South Korean tobacco industry learned about the formula. The South Korean government banned the production, distribution, and sale of HNB products, but this did little to slow the HNB popularity. In fact, the HNB industry has increased in size in South Korea, selling upwards of two million packages per month. The HNB industry has not, however, taken off in the European Union. The EU has attempted to tighten the regulations that apply to HNBs, but to no avail.
Will the global vape market become a leader in the global smoking population? No one can be certain. There is no clear trend among European and North American countries for the percentage of HNB sales to go up or down. In North America, the sale of HNB products is steady and does appear to be on the rise.
In terms of European Union countries, it appears that the HNB sales are on the decline. The forecast period for HNB volumes going up or down remains very unclear. Some experts project that the trend may continue between the first half of this year and the second half of next year. In North America, HNB sales are on the decline, but this is expected to reverse as the European Union begins to tighten its restrictive laws. This could herald a reversal in the growth pattern seen over the last few years in North America and Europe.
In conclusion, the European Union has recently tightened its regulations on the sale and marketing of cigarette products in its member states. The tightening of the legislation comes as several reports indicate a steep rise in HNB tobacco use across the EU. If the current trends continue, then vaporizers will soon be seen as more lucrative markets than cigarettes. If you are interested in investing in the European E-Cigarette business, it would be wise to keep your eyes peeled for possible regulation changes over the next few years. The tightening of the EU laws will most likely attract more companies to begin selling electronic cigarettes in the E-Cigarette industry, resulting in increased consumer interest.
