Global Electronic Cigarette Market: Overview
Electronic cigarettes are gaining popularity across the world as an alternative to traditional tobacco filled cigarettes. They are battery-operated devices containing liquid nicotine dissolved in a water and propylene glycol solution. They heat that liquid containing some specific flavor into a vapor, which the user then inhales. Due to the seamless design of electronic cigarettes and their disassociation with the smoke created by conventional cigarettes, these are considered to be less harmful to health. Players in the global electronic cigarettes market are experimenting with the design of their products to boost their sales.

Global Electronic Cigarette Market: Drivers and Restraints
The ban on public smoking across several countries worldwide along with the intensification of anti-smoking campaigns is a boon to the global electronic cigarette market. A commonly cited driver of the market is the less hazardous effect of electronic cigarettes as compared to regular cigarettes along with the rising awareness regarding the ill-effects of smoking. The availability of a multitude of flavors and nicotine levels is also playing a vital role in the growth of the global market. Moreover, the rising prices of regular cigarettes and enjoyment of the experience of electronic cigarettes use are augmenting the market.
However, several government organizations do not approve of electronic cigarettes as smoking cessation tools and therefore are imposing stringent regulations on their manufacturing. For instance, in May 2016, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that electronic cigarettes and other tobacco products such as cigars and hookahs will be treated just like cigarettes and therefore, their manufacturers will have to seek marketing approval for their products from FDA. The organization has also banned sales of such products to people under 18. Hence, such regulations are adversely affecting the growth of the market.
