Manufacturers are showing they have faith in pod

Market reports

Pods are a new hardware category which aims to fill the gap in the U.S. market between the traditional products on offer. In this March 2017 report, we see that the key concept is to close the gap between easy-to-use products and high-performance ones: by improving the performance of lower-end products, and/or simplifying usability of high performing ones.
There is a divide in the category between higher power “pod mod” products with larger pre-filled pods, and lower power pods which offer extreme compactness. Pod hardware manufacturers are collaborating with well-known e-liquid manufacturers, with benefits for both sides.

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.
