The legal classification of e-cigarettes in Indonesia is far from clear – whether they come under regulations relating to tobacco, pharmaceutical or consumer products.
What does seem clear is that e-cigs continue to be legal for now, despite some reports last year to the contrary. It is possible they may become illegal in future. Our in-depth regulatory report looks at every aspect of e-cigarette regulation in Indonesia.

Due to a tax on e-liquids containing nicotine, most e-liquid bought in Portugal is nicotine free. Vapers are then adding nicotine separately to avoid increasing the price. However, a lot of sales are occurring across the border in Spain, which is having a large, negative impact on the Portuguese market.

Philip Morris International (PMI) this week submitted its iQOS technology for approval as a reduced-risk product by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a strategy which if successful would provide a tremendous boost to the credibility of heat-not-burn and perhaps pave the way for PMI’s partner Altria to dominate that market in the United States.

In this November 2016 analysis we focused on stores which we believed to be dedicated to vaping, the traditional definition of a vape store. The directories to a large extent are populated with these stores, however we cleaned the data of stores which were clearly tobacconists or other non-specialist stores.

Local e-liquid manufacturers, small vape stores and a culture of cloud chasing dominate a very small e-cig market in the Philippines, where traditional cigarettes are cheap and nearly half of all men smoke. But that could change with the entry of British American Tobacco into the unregulated market.
