Vaping’s Increasing Popularity
Ten years ago, it would have been hard to say such great rise in vaping’s popularity. Like the different products of the modern century, e-commerce, social media and others, the e-cigarettes have really become a very important part for the daily life of many. Daily living would seem odd without vaping. There are many other reasons why vaping continues to rise.
Since 2009, when vaping took a foothold in the European and the US markets, the sales have really experienced exponential growth. There had been a growth in the sales of 360 million pounds in 2009 and also the industry has really grown by around 50 to 80 percent yearly. Such equates to around 1600 percent in only a period of six years.
You should know that UK is currently the biggest market for sales in vaping device after the US. The switch to such vaping from those traditional smoking alternatives such as nicotine gum and patches is reflected in the numbers too. In the year 2014, spending on the gum and patches actually fell by 3 percent and such is the first dip after 4-straight years of five to six percent in growth. In the year 2015, e-cigarettes made six times the sales for the traditional therapies. You must know that such numbers are quite big. However, when you look at what these two options provide the user, you cannot say that they are largely surprising.
You must know that vaping has importantly taken such nicotine replacement model and then turned it into that more natural and fun transition from such cigarette smoking. You may be happy with this or not but the cigarettes have with them the social element which the gums as well as the patches are not able to replicate. However, vaping can.
Know that vaping really provided all the fun of smoking, without a lot of the ill-effects. In fact, vaping has given that rise to a more social activity unlike what the cigarette smoking could. You should know that the vaping culture has become more popular and there are many groups in the UK and also in other parts of the world. There are many dedicated online communities which bring together those vapers to discuss such intricacies of their hobby.
What is also great about vaping is the tailor-made experience. The vape mods allow you to have such personalized vaping experience. If you want more power or life from a larger battery, greater ability to release vapor or control the wattage or the voltage, then you can have the mod. Often, the modification is aesthetic and such gives the e-cigarette a very unique and personalized look.
