Daily Mail

"Tim Phillips, managing director at analysts ECigIntelligence, agreed there will be dramatic changes. In addition to the EU and the US, where the Food and Drug Administration is expanding its regulatory power to e-cigarettes and hookah tobacco, Phillips said China can be expected to regulate its vaping industry, possibly along the lines of what is adopted in the EU and US."

Tobacco Journal International

"This really is the first time that the industry will have detailed independent data from vape shops, where much of the growth in the sector is now occurring, reaching more than $1.5 billion in annual revenue," said Tim Phillips, CEO, ECigIntelligence."


"According to statistics released in February 2017 by ECigIntelligence, the global electronic cigarette retail market amounts to some US$6.4 billion. In 2016, the market size in China was about RMB3.2 billion Chinese (US$465 million)."

"The new figure comes from a more in-depth study and analysis from ECigIntelligence which used a based its calculations on a different research. ECigIntelligence managing director Tim Phillips said: "We took a conservative approach when performing our market analysis, but we still found the European market to be significantly larger than expected. This highlights the startling potential of the e-cigarette sector."

Slovenia has been collecting €0.18/mL since Aug. 1. “With a quarter of the EU’s 28 member states now putting category-specific taxes on e-cigs, [taxation] is no longer the rare policy anomaly it once seemed,” ECigIntelligence wrote."
