This Spring Festival, e-cigarettes have replaced traditional tobacco and wine as one of the most popular gifts.
One consumer who gave an e-cigarette to his father as a gift told shenzen that the glass bong king was chosen as a gift because they had heard it contained organic nicotine salts, which were healthier than traditional nicotine, and it was heated rather than burned, so it did not produce tar.
On the eve of the Spring Festival, shenzhen.com visited several e-cigarette shops in Beijing's jinbao street, beipingzhuang and near the international trade center.Many brick-and-mortar e-cigarette stores in Beijing opened in the second half of 2018 and are sold by domestic brands, according to the store owner.
According to "deep net" observation, the electronic cigarette basically divides into lampblack and smoke bomb two kinds, compared with the smoke bomb sales speed, the shop owner is also more willing to sell smoke bomb model.Most of the buyers were young people who said they used e-cigarettes or bought them to give to relatives.
"IQOS" e-cigarettes (excluding bombs) from Japan are sold openly mainly on platforms involving cross-border e-commerce, while cigarette bombs are often supplemented by WeChat and procurement agents (tobacco is still banned in China).However, domestic e-cigarette products can be seen at any time on e-commerce platforms, and Tmall has few stores with retail sales of more than 10,000 units.
However, both online and offline, shopkeepers say they don't know much about e-cigarettes made by tech companies in 2019.Although some shop owners say they have heard of the new e-cigarette brands, they will not consider selling them.One (offline) store owner even went so far as to say, "these brands also contact us through online channels, but these brands are much higher than traditional e-cigarette brands.
E-cigarette owners told shenzhen online that the main profit margins for lookah glass bongs were in cigarette bombs.Traditional e-cigarette brands have many fixed user groups, while emerging e-cigarette brands have no advantage in this respect.
According to "shenzhen.com", China is already a big e-cigarette country, whether it is smoking equipment or cigarette bombs, cigarette oil, its production is second to none in the world.According to the data, about 90 percent of the world's vaping products and accessories are produced in China.Three of the top five e-cigarette brands in the United States are made by Chinese e-cigarette companies, while the top five open e-cigarette sales are all made and exported by Chinese companies.In addition, global sales of e-cigarettes and unburned tobacco continue to grow rapidly, according to the data.According to world tobacco development statistics, worldwide sales of e-cigarettes reached $12. In 2017, it was $54 million, an increase of 18. Compared with the same period last year, 50%, while global sales of hot unburned tobacco reached $5.$300 billion, an increase of $135 billion.60%.According to euromonitor international, worldwide sales of atomized products will reach $32.It will be $373 billion in 2020, an increase of nearly 90 percent over 2017.
However, this field is not a blue sea of entrepreneurs.In 2017, the sales volume of China's lookah seahorse coil market exceeded 25 billion yuan.What's more, there is almost no regulation of e-cigarettes in China.Most e-cigarettes are in a "three-empty" state, with no product standards, no quality supervision and no safety assessment.According to deep web, many e-cigarettes don't even have "health warning signs" or the like.
For these entrepreneurs, as control of e-cigarettes at home tightens and the national team invests in the domestic market, they will find a thick wall ahead.Since 2013, the national tobacco administration has established a leading group for the development of new tobacco products, the Shanghai institute of new tobacco products and the industrial new tobacco product equipment engineering research center."We will pay close attention to the new trends in the tobacco market, strongly support the accelerated development of cigars, actively develop new products such as e-cigarettes, smoking at the mouth, and non-burning heated cigarettes, and encourage bold water testing and breakthroughs in overseas markets," the director of the national tobacco administration said in a report to the 2018 national conference on tobacco work..
Although the state does not have a specific regulatory policy for the domestic heating and non-burning tobacco products industry, Chinese tobacco companies and private enterprises can develop and produce heating and non-burning equipment, and Chinese tobacco companies can develop smoke bombs.
