As the vaping lifestyle trend expires, the Chinese vaping industry struggles to become an option for smokers in a country where smoking is culturally ingrained. Meanwhile, vape stores close and the big online marketplaces dominate
In this report ECigIntelligence takes an in-depth look at the market in China. 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.
