While The Tobacco Act classes e-cigarettes as tobacco-related products, Estonia’s government is considering a draft amendment to that bill that could see domestic online sales may be banned in 2019. Currently, e-liquid is not taxed, but that is likely to change in 2018, when e-liquids could be taxed at the rate of €0.2 per millilitre.

In our latest report on Belgium, we find that the market is only growing slowly due to online restrictions following the implementation of the TPD. Online sales are banned, meaning sites can only offer in-store collection, and having to print packaging in three languages has proved a barrier to some manufacturers. Meanwhile, French companies – the source of much of the e-liquid – have a strong presence in the south of the country.

In 2016 the EU Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) came into force, and the compulsory pharmaceutical licensing of nicotine containing e-cigs and e-liquids ended. This means vape stores and other bricks-and-mortar retailers are now allowed to stock nicotine-containing products, which might increase the proportion of sales coming through this channel. In this March 2017 report on Denmark we look at the offline channel to see if it is has developed as it’s online counterpart has in terms of products on offer and prices.

Hungary has finally opened its market for sale of nicotine e-cigarettes by adopting changes to its national tobacco laws and aligning them with TPD standards. Nevertheless, Hungarian regulation remains among the most severe in Europe. Enforcement of the ban on cross-border and online sales is very efficient, making it almost impossible to buy vaping products online in Hungary. Hungary is also one of the few EU states to have banned flavours.

In our latest report on the Italian market, we see that online remained the largest e-cig sales channel in 2016, with a significant increase in traffic early last year reflecting an increased e-cig usage during this period. However, Italy’s leading online retailers have significantly less traffic than in comparable e-cig markets such as the UK and France – and like other e-cig markets, leading online retailers drive the majority of traffic in the sector.
