In 2021 the South African vaping market is 10% higher than 2020. The tobacco and vaping law drafted in 2018 hasn’t been yet been introduced and it is very unlikely it will be by the end of 2021. There has been a sharp increase in the popularity of disposable e-cigarettes. Independent vape stores are positive about the future, though the possible implementation of new regulations concerns them. Prices for both hardware and e-liquids have stabilised in 2021 after the 2020 temporary sales ban on e-cigarette products.
