2014 was a monumental year for electronic cigarettes. We saw the FDA finally address the need for sensible regulations, as the industry continues to grow at a rapid rate. We saw the innovation of products happen at a crazy fast speed, with consumers wanting more and more advanced products. We received plenty of success, watched as Oxford Dictionaries named “Vape” the word of the year, and have seen firsthand how mainstream vaping overall has become. It has been a good year! So what lies ahead in 2015? Here is a look at our predictions, as we have a feeling it will only continue to get more epic!
-More Smokers Switching
As the products get more exciting, and more users are taking to them, there will be even more smokers switching to vapor cigs. With the expanding popularity, more smokers are beginning to feel comfortable and confident switching to e-cigs.
Gotta love innovation, right? Better products will be hitting the market, especially geared towards beginners. Beginners will also be more inclined to start up with more advanced electronic cigarette products because they are becoming so popular.
Research has been happening increasingly over the years, and it is definitely continuing. The public wants research. E-cig users want research. Scientists want research. E-Cigarette companies want research. Everyone wants research, and it will be coming. Evidence supports the cause, and it’s exactly what users and businesses want on their side.
-A Bigger Push From Big Tobacco
They aren’t willing to let e-cigs take over without a fight! And with vaping as popular as it is, and their own industry on the decline, they will certainly be inching into the e-cigarette market both by appealing to lobbyists however they can, and also by introducing their own vaporizer type products.
Vapor shops will continue to open and receive business, as more people begin vaping there will be a need for brick and mortar options.
