Market Overview

The U.S. is the largest revenue generating market for e-cigarettes and vaporizers globally and the exponential market growth has brought about a surge in the demand of e-liquid in the country. While new consortiums and alliances are being formed to either promote or bring down the growing popularity of e-liquids, an increasing number of convenience stores and online retailers are increasing their e-liquid product offerings. As a result of increasing competition and growing consumer demand for different e-liquid flavors, the U.S. e-liquid market is poised to grow over $8.26 billion by 2025 at double digit CAGR from 2015 to 2025. The biggest challenge for the e-liquid manufacturers and suppliers currently is the imposition of hefty taxes on e-liquids. Minnesota and North Carolina were the first states to impose taxes e-liquids and e-juices.

Both e-liquid volume and value for pre-filled cartridges and disposable e-cigarettes dominated the market in 2014. The cost effectiveness of rechargeable e-cigarettes and disposable e-cigarettes are the key drivers that will enable a continued dominance of pre-filled e-liquid supply mode through the forecast period. The e-liquid market will witness profound transformation in terms of revenue generation from local e-liquid manufacturers. The ongoing formulations of regulations and meeting compliances will eventually increase the ASP of imported e-liquids. Moreover, quality will be given more preference over the forecast period which is anticipated out of the U.S. manufactured e-liquids.

While established brands such as Blu, Vuse, Logic, MarkTen, and NJOY among others contribute significantly to the e-liquid market value in the U.S., dedicated e-liquid players such as NicQuid, Purilum, and J Vapes E-liquid have also been identified as key players in the market.
