Market analysis of e-cigarettes

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the e-cigarettes market in the US to grow at a CAGR of around 33% during the forecast period. The increased desire among consumers to quit smoking tobacco is the primary driver for the growth of this market. For instance, according to the US government, approximately 480,000 people die in the country every year due to active smoking. E-cigarettes are considered a healthier alternative to tobacco smoking, and, therefore, are becoming popular among end-users.
