The market has exploded in size and revenue and smokers are increasingly likely to have tried an e-cig or be thinking of using one.

Highlights

Electronic cigarettes (e-cigs) mimic the shape and style of cigarettes and are designed to produce a similar sensation to smoking, while delivering the same nicotine hit. The designs, however, are very different
The electronic cigarette and the tobacco industry are inextricably linked as future e-cig users are likely to be drawn directly from the tobacco industry. The tobacco industry is facing a difficult time currently as governments continue to restrict and limit their business actions in the name of protecting the consumer.
Our first case study on electronic cigarettes showed it was uncertain just what Big Tobacco was going to do about the electronic cigarette industry. Some players had made steps to enter the market but others seemed tentative. Now, Big Tobacco is flying into the industry snapping up key brands and releasing new ones.

Your key questions answered

* What is an e-cig and who makes them?
* Are they safe to use and could they be safer than traditional tobacco products?
* Why does Big Tobacco want a piece of the action?
* How is the traditional tobacco market doing and has it been affected by e-cig sales?
* Could regulation cripple the market and if so would this be a good idea?
