The e-cigarette market was estimated to be worth $2 billion in 2013 and is growing at dazzling speed, with some analysts predicting it will overtake the traditional tobacco cigarette market within ten years. New and apparently safer technologies, declining popularity of tobacco, and a range of smoking bans are among the drivers of its growth.
There are huge interests at stake, including the existing tobacco giants, pharmaceutical companies protecting sales of nicotine replacement therapies, government tax revenues, and public health. The e-cigarette industry itself, meanwhile, is a jigsaw of relatively small and innovative startups.
Regulation is fragmented, and changing fast. Opinions are vehement. Successful policy solutions will have to address many competing, often contradictory agendas, making this one of the most intriguing sectors to cover today.
