The prominent consortiums discussed in this segment are The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), Tobacco Vapor E-cigarette Association (TVECA) and British Medical Association among others.

Market Overview

When the e-cigarette market gained momentum, Europe lagged behind the U.S. in terms of product adoption, however, the region has now emerged as the global leader in terms of revenue generation. E-cigarettes are increasingly being used as smoking cessation products, while the sale of nicotine replacement products has been falling in the region by over 6% year by year since 2014, e-cigarette sales have been growing at double digit rates. The market now has the presence of both leading Big Tobacco players and several small local players leading the revenue generation. As a consequence, multiple business opportunities have surfaced with the vaping industry, vape shops being one of them.

Since the market is still in the initial stages of its growth, there is a significant share of population which is still unaware or skeptical about the pros and cons of using e-cigarettes and has never used them. Moreover, a large proportion of those who tried were not thorough with the different product types and their features and functioning. Vape shops play a vital role in educating users and building trust among them. Vape shops are the dedicated brick-and-mortar retail outlets which offer e-cigarette device and components. They usually provide demos and the facilities of testing and trying different devices, e-liquids, flavors and components. They also provide users with free samples for trial purposes. Thus, they help new users find e-cigarettes that suit their requirements and needs. 

There has been a significant surge in the number of vape shops since 2014 in European countries. There are over 12,000 dedicated vape shops in Europe currently which does not include tobacco shops or other retail outlets (brick-and-mortar). Most of these are concentrated in the small number of countries, namely the U.K., France, Germany, Poland, Italy and Russia which have large e-cigarette markets in terms of value. The recent development of the U.K. exiting the European Union is anticipated to impact the vape shop business in the country as significantly as it was speculated at the time of EU TPD implementation. Currently, there are no significant changes, however the situation will be more critically analyzed in 2017.

The U.K., Germany, Poland and France generate the maximum revenue. Russia as a market, has been identified as an opportunity for vape shop owners, owing to the high smoking population and low vape shop count. The implementation of the EU-TPD was followed by shutting down of hundreds of vape shops in various countries, Spain being one such example. The thriving e-cigarette industry may further be adversely affected due to imposition of taxations across a number of countries. In terms of products, bottled e-liquids, personal vaporizers, batteries and atomizers are the most widely sold products through vape shops while rechargeable e-cigarettes and disposables are commonly available in convenience stores and supermarkets.
