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.

In our latest report on the Italian market, we see that online remained the largest e-cig sales channel in 2016, with a significant increase in traffic early last year reflecting an increased e-cig usage during this period. However, Italy’s leading online retailers have significantly less traffic than in comparable e-cig markets such as the UK and France – and like other e-cig markets, leading online retailers drive the majority of traffic in the sector.

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