Disposable vape bans are not all bad news for the e-cigarette sector, say ECigIntelligence experts

Disposable vape bans might not be all bad news for the vape market sector, according to experts at ECigIntelligence. With disposable vape bans in the UK and France grabbing media attention – and other countries are likely to follow – the industry experts believe the move may end up boosting sales in other sectors of the vape market and adding to overall credibility of the products.

Both the UK and France have recently said they will prohibit the sale of disposable single-use vape products in the near future, amid claimed concerns about youth usage and the products' environmental impact. Meanwhile, several other governments have discussed taking similar steps – Scotland saying its ban will begin in April 2025.

But restrictions on disposables are not necessarily bad news for the vape sector”, according to industry watchers at ECigIntelligence, the leading provider of data and insight on e-cigarettes since 2014.

ECigIntelligence continued: “As well as addressing problems related to waste and under-age use, these measures should help to remove many low-quality products from the market and encourage consumer confidence.

“They could also provide a boost to sales of other, more environmentally friendly e-cigarette formats.

“And legislating now on disposables could remove the need for more stringent regulation later on, which might harm adult smokers trying to give up.”

CEO Tim Phillips and editorial director Barnaby Page discuss these bans and what they mean for the e-cigarette industry in a new webinar, just released.

ECigIntelligence says it is the leading provider of detailed global market and regulatory analysis, legal tracking, and quantitative data for the e-cigarette sector worldwide.

We provide our clients with the tools to navigate this fast-moving sector, tailor their business strategy, optimise resources, and make informed decisions. Our global perspective on the international vape sector offers valuable data such as market trends, key players, regulatory obligations and industry dynamics.”
