The vaping market is growing at a rapid rate. In the last year, electronic cigarettes sales in the United States reached $3.6 billion. Experts predict that a global market will grow up to $50 billion by 2025. We are not going to look that far. Let’s see what 2019 has in stock for the vaping industry.
Which vape devices will be in the greatest demand?
It’s hard to predict what particular models of vaping devices will top the list of the best seller vapes in 2019. But there’s one sustained trend on the market. Different groups of customers usually buy the same types of vaporizers. It doesn’t seem that this will change. We’ll notice one upcoming trend – all in one vaporizer. But first things first.
Vape customers are divided into three groups on the basis of experience. And each group has its own preferences.
A novice will be more likely to enjoy the first vape if they choose an easy-to-use device. It’s especially crucial for those who decide to try vaping as a quitting tool. A smooth transition increases the chances of success. So, it’s best to start vaping using the next devices that are super easy to operate:
- All-in-one vaporizers
This is a self-contained device with enclosed the coils and tank. The new all in one vape is perfect for hassle-free vaping sessions. You won’t need to set up, install, or modify anything on your own.
AIO systems have an advantage of replaceable coils and allow using your own e-juice instead of pre-filled cartridges. The best all in one vape mod works as lovely as a classic mod box, just as the best AIO vape pen performs as nice as a common vape pen. The difference is that AIOs are more beginner-friendly.
These e-cigs reminds real cigarettes the most. Disposable models are one-piece units that you can use and discard. Rechargeable models are two-piece models that come with replaceable cartridges.
- Vape Pens
Pen-style devices are bigger and more powerful than cig-a-likes. They have larger tanks (also called clearomizers) and longer battery life. A fully filled and fully charged vape pen could last you up to 3 days.
- Pod vapes
The easiest way to explain a vape pod is as “a system somewhere between a cig-a-like and a mod.” It’s portable like a vape pen and has a powerful battery like a vape mod. A pod vape is a two-piece unit with a battery and a refillable or replaceable pod.
- Intermediate vapers
When a vapor feels confident with simple devices, and want to check if something more complex can provide better vaping sensations, they start trying more upgraded models.
- Vape mods
These modified electronic cigarettes are more advanced than the devices listed above. They belong to the category of advanced personal vaporizers (APVs). They can be mechanical and regulated. Vape mods have many features which are appealing for vapers who like to set up the vape according to individual tastes.
- Box mod starter kits
Box mod kits are large and capable vaporizers. Due to their size, they perform much better. The long-running internal or external battery is also a huge bonus. A set of features is satisfying. A device can be paired with other tanks.
- Intermediate to advanced users
The vapers who clearly know what they want from the vaping device prefer the most up-to-date and powerful vaporizers. Experienced vapers also like experiments. They are trying the latest models or even build them on their own.
- High wattage sub-ohm starter kits
These models are very popular on the market as they are geared for chasing big clouds and providing intense flavor. Two or three batteries give extra power.
- Regulated squonk mod
Though the squonk mods were introduced in the early days of vaping, they were expensive to manufacture. Now, these top-performing devices are available to us. Squonking uses a bottom-fed rebuildable tank atomizer. There’s no need to drip. It’s a sort of an all-in-one solution.
The state of things on the global vaping market
In 2019, vape products are manufactured, sold, and used nearly everywhere. The range of vape products is bewildering – cig-a-likes, vape pens, vape mods, vape kits, and all in one vape, the latest member of the family.
Top vaping manufactures are situated in China, the United Kingdom and the United States. Given that e-cigarette was created in China, it’s logical that the country is the biggest supplier of vaping products, producing about 90% of the world’s e-cigs. Unfortunately, quality control there is at a low level. Many Chinese vape products are simply counterfeits.
But things may change soon. The new Electronic Commerce Law which was implemented on January 1, 2019, requires manufacturers to obtain relevant licenses and qualifications.
The UK e-cigs are known for good quality. The industry is mainly supported by independent mall businesses, which the country has more than 1,100. Britain exports to Asia, and even China.
The U.S. also has its share in this lucrative business. There’re more than 6,000 vape shops here.
The opportunities for entrepreneurs in 2019
Beju Lakhani, a CEO of Vape Brands International, once said: ‘The reality is, as long as there are smokers, there will be smokers looking to stop smoking.’ And the vaping business will keep capitalizing on this reality, by offering an alternative to smoking. That said, electronic cigarettes are, in 2019, a profitable sector for startups.
According to forecasts of economists, 2019 will be one of the most innovative, transformative and just interesting years in e-commerce. Vaping experts also predict the growth of online vape shops. The possible reason for that is a lower initial investment.
Local vape shops will increase in importance. There’re millions of vapers in the U.S., but it still can be challenging to find a favorite e-juice at convenience stores and gas stations.
So, if you’re going to start a vaping business, it will be a smart decision to invest in kiosks in target locations or develop an e-commerce site to sell the products online.
All in all, vaping is going to have a good year. It’s still one of the fastest-growing and vibrant industries. And its development is unlikely to disappoint experts and vapers.
