Electronic Cigarettes to Become a $3 Billion Industry
Heavy smokers rejoice, electronic cigarettes are here to stay.
What are they? They’re thin pipes that create an inhaled vapor by
heating liquid nicotine from a disposable cartridge.
Although similar in appearance to a standard smoke, they’re
different in almost every other way.
E-cigarettes were first produced in 2003 but gained mainstream
popularity over the years using the Internet as a medium.
What began as a fad has quickly picked up steam and turned
into a viable product that could potentially put a dent in regular cigarette sales.
But why shouldn’t they?
Electronic cigarettes are safer, less addictive, and a fraction of the cost
of regular cigarettes. The growing popularity stems from the product’s
unique ability to address the physical, social, and behavioral aspects of a
smoking addiction. Millions of people are already reaping the benefits.
Research experts with Citi Tobacco believe regulations alone will not stand in
the way of e-cigarettes on their way to becoming a $3 billion industry.
Take a look at the market projections:
As the industry becomes an increasing area of interest for investors
around the world, look for those numbers to continue rising. Currently, there are
45 million smokers in the United States and 2.5 million e-cigarette smokers.
Out of the 2.5 million e-cigarette smokers, 31% made the switch altogether
within 6 months.
Compare that to the 95% of people who fail to kick the habit without a smoking
cessation program and the choice is clear that you’ll need some help to reach your goals.

marketplace is 7’s. They boast an extensive lineup of products to choose from
