ECigIntelligence estimates the Malaysian e-cig market to be worth 513.4m ringgit ($120m) in 2017, with 600,000 vapers.

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.
