In 2014, the Wall Street Journal noted the combined e-cigarette/Vapor market size was $2.2 billion, with e-cigarettes holding the lion’s share at $1.4 billion and vapors at $800 million. Seen as healthier than smoking, and with a variety of flavor options beyond just tobacco (from savory to sweet and everything in between—Unicorn Puke anyone?), e-cigs and vapors are popular with those trying to quit smoking as well as those who see them as trendy and cool. Although the initial cost of a kit and/or “smoking juice,” as the vapor is also known, may seem expensive, a 1.5mL bottle of the latter is actually comparable to 5-7 packs of “old school” cigarettes.
A quick Google search of trade shows and websites related to the e-cig/vapor industry shows just how popular and diverse this industry is, and social media groups are equally prevalent. Are you a part of this record-breaking growth? Whereas the traditional cigarette market was controlled largely by the three so-called “Big Tobacco” firms, e-cigs and vapor makers and marketers tend to be start-ups anxious to get in on the astronomical growth and stake their claim.
Smaller companies make up the majority of e-cig and vapor sellers and, based on volumes alone, many are outsourcing their fulfillment to companies like Fulfillment.com. E-cigarettes and vapor products are a perfect fit for our business, which caters to B2C customers shipping small parcels in large volumes. Our global shipping levels enable us to offer extremely competitive pricing for these types of clients. Even when compared to Amazon and Shipwire, Fulfillment.com was deemed the best choice for order fulfillment services.
