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.

The world’s most highly populated country is for now a largely untapped potential market for e-cigarettes, despite most of the world’s vaping hardware being manufactured there. The prevalence of smoking among men, the cheapness of traditional cigarettes supplied by a state monopoly industry, and the lack of desire in most smokers to give up all contribute to resistance to switching to electronic devices.
