Portugal market adapting to new regulations and lower tax

30th August 2017 | Market reports |

After the fall of the market size due the e-liquid tax, it seems both companies and vapers have now adapted to the new regulation. As the market starts to grow again, we find advance modular systems have a high prevalence. With distance sales forbidden, Portugal stores have adapted the same strategy as companies in Belgium and Austria: the catalogue is online but there is no delivery.

E-liquid tax having negative impact on Portugal market

9th December 2016 | Market reports |

However, a lot of sales are occurring across the border in Spain, which is having a large, negative impact on the Portuguese market.
