The days of walking into a crowded, smokey bar are gone in many states. While the rooms may still be crowded, the stale lingering smell of cigarette smoke has been relegated to outdoors in several states throughout the country. Not all of thise smoke, however, has been eliminated by state laws and no smoking ordinances. The reason for the lack of smoke in some environments is that many consumers have been stopping at the corner cape shop to see what ecigs for sale are available, instead of buying a packet of cigarettes.
The average cigarette contains 7,000 chemicals; 69 of those are know to cause cancer. Cigarette smoking has had a devastating effect on society:
–8,600,000 Americans have at least one serious illness directly caused by smoking.
–1,000 people a year are killed in smoking material related fires, most starting beds, furniture or trash.
–Women smokers are up to 40 times more likely to develop chronic obstructive pulmonary disease than non-smoking women.
–Nonsmokers who are exposed to secondhand smoke at home or work have a 20-30% higher chance of developing lung cancer increase.
With these frightening statistics, is it any wonder that vaping is a growing trend? In fact, more and more businesses are advertising ecigs for sale as they attempt to attract customers from the e-cig market which was valued at $1.7 billion in the year 2013. Both men and women are attracted to the e-cig culture. Male smokers make up for 56% of e-cigarette users while women account for 44% of gaping. An even more staggering number is that the Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette Association currently estimates that 4 million Americans now use battery powered cigarettes. Many of the smokers turning to this option seem to be looking for a lower nicotine experience. Marketing studies show that E-liquid in very low to zero nicotine strength, anything 6 mg per ml and below, outsells medium-to-high strengths, anything 12 mg and above by a rate of nearly two-to-one.
While “E-Cigs for Sale” signs are popping up on every corner, the vaping industry itself continues to work to increase its “lower or no nicotine” option. A recent study shows that as of 2015, the U.S. e-cigarette market has increased to $2.5 billion in annual sales. This compared to an ecigs for sale market that was almost nothing eight years ago.
Smokey bars and restaurants throughout the country may be a thing of the past. The discerning customer seems to be more attracted to the less nicotine and no smoke option of gaping.
