Growing Working Population Leading to a Surge in the Popularity of E-Cigarettes

The growth in the working population has contributed to a surging demand for electronic cigarettes due to various reasons. Since consumers’ lifestyles revolve around work and offices, anxiety and stress levels are increasing among the working people, which results in the growing consumption of nicotine which is a stress relieving agent and helps calm the consumers.

Moreover, the social environment of the workplace, where smoking breaks are very common, influences the non-smokers, to inculcate the habit. The rise in disposable income among the working class further fuels the growth of the market. Marketing strategies targeting working professionals play a very crucial role in promoting smoking as a lifestyle choice. As the working population expands, the market for cigarettes is creating a surge in demand and helping the market expand.

For instance, in November 2022, Imperial Brands PLC launched a new range of disposable vapes under the Blu banner. It is a collection of compact, small pocket-sized vapes, each consisting of 20 mg of nicotine in a 2 ml liquid, giving around 600 puffs. These vapes have an LED indicator that lights up whenever the product is in use. The product is retailed in the market for USD 5.99. It was launched in flavors including banana, mango, watermelon, peach, and strawberry.

Peer Influence Among Millennials are Boosting the Market

Peer influence among millennials has contributed to a surge in demand for electronic cigarettes. Social environment, desire for acceptance, and fear of missing out push non-smokers to start smoking. Thus, influenced by peers, non-smokers tend to normalize smoking. Millennials often associate stress relief with cigarettes and the influence of social media further amplifies the trend. Consequently, the urge for social acceptance and peer pressure influence fuels cigarette consumption among millennials, expanding the growth of the market in the coming future.

Key players are taking advantage of the situation and innovating and promoting their products to attract consumers towards their businesses. For instance, British American Tobacco PLC announced the launch of latest version of its vaping devices, Glo range in January 2024. The Glo Hyper Pro offers better performance compared to the previous versions. The latest version takes a charge of about 90 minutes for an all-day output. Once fully charged, the consumers can expect to use the device for around 20 sessions. The new Glo range is available in Japan, Italy, and Poland, with further global expansion planned by the company in 2024.

The inhalation of tobacco smoke introduces harmful chemicals into the respiratory system of an individual. Chronic exposure damage and lung tissues are leading to conditions, like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and emphysema, restricting respiratory function and causing permanent coughing.

Moreover, the carbon monoxide in tobacco smoke reduces the blood’s oxygen-carrying capacity, straining the heart from proper oxygen supply.

Additionally, cancer caused by smoking cigarettes is very common. Lung cancer is the most common, smoking cigarettes causes cancers of the mouth, throat, esophagus, pancreas, bladder, and other body parts. The carcinogens in tobacco damage DNA, leading to the development of malignant cells.

Reproductive health is compromised by smoking, with an increase in infertility and pregnancy complications. Passive smoking affects non-smokers, causing respiratory and cardiovascular risks.

As manufacturers refine and expand these technologies, the trend of the latest and modern options and customizable vaping experiences is expected to continue to propel the growth of the market.
