The E-Cigarette is a battery-operated device which emits doses of nicotine, propylene glycol, glycerine, and other chemicals, for the user to inhale. The main aim of electronic cigarettes is to provide a similar sensation to inhaling tobacco smoke without the smoke. Most of the e-cigarettes contain a mouthpiece, an atomizer, and a rechargeable battery and are also known as E-Vaping devices, electronic nicotine delivery system, or vape pens. The mouthpiece is a cartridge that is fixed to the end of a tube and can be refilled or replaced when required. The atomizer heats the e-liquid with the help of the battery to form vapours. The E-Cigarettes is readily available in a variety of flavouring agents such as watermelon, menthol, lava, and many more.
The main key factor contributing to the growing demand of the Global E-Cigarette market is the rising penetration of the e-cigarettes among millennials across the globe. The expansion in the variety of e-cigarettes, easy availability option, and longer battery life is attracting a large number of customers towards the E-Cigarette market.

However, the strict regulations imposed by the government bodies across multiple nations such as U.S. and Germany are likely to hamper the growth of the market. In addition to this, the stringent trading laws aimed to reduce the import of vaping devices will have an adverse impact on the Global E-Cigarette market.
