The Rising Popularity of Vaping
A decade ago, it would have been hard to predict such amazing rise in vaping popularity. Just like the many products of the current century, the social media, e-commerce and several others, the e-cigarettes have become really important for the daily life of a lot of people. For some people, it would not be possible to not vape in a day. There are other reasons that vaping keeps on rising in popularity.
In the year 2009 when vaping was introduced and welcomed in the European and also the US markets, the sales have shown an exponential growth. From that worldwide e-cigarette related sales of 360 million pounds in 2009, the industry has grown by 50 to 80 percent each year. This simply equates to about 1600 percent in just a matter of six years.
After the US, the UK is presently the largest market for sales in vaping devices. 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 those patches and gum fell by three percent and this is the first dip after four straight years of five to six percent growth. In the year 2015, the e-cigarettes had been six times more in sales. 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 should know that vaping has taken the nicotine replacement model and such turned it into a much more natural and also a more fun switch from 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. But such has been done in vaping.
What is great about vaping is that you can have the fun of smoking minus the ill-effects. As a matter of fact, vaping has also given a rise to such more social activity as compared to 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.
You can get that tailor-made experience with vaping and this is what is great about it. The vape mods allow you to have such personalized vaping experience. Whether you like more power or life from the bigger battery, the greater ability to produce such vapor or control on the voltage or wattage, there is a mod to suit. Usually, the modification is aesthetic and this would give the e-cigarette a really unique and also a personalized look.
