E-cigarettes market is segregated on the basis of product type, distribution, and geography. On the basis of type, the market is categorized into rechargeable, disposable, ego e-cigarettes, APVs or mods, and some others.

Global E-Cigarettes Market Industry Analysis:
The market has evolved drastically over the past three decades and is standing at the point of influx, wherein a plethora of companies have entered the market either largely due to the unstructured government policies and low capital requirements and to utilize the demand for these cigarettes by releasing advanced products and to be a pioneer in the market. Moreover, an overall non-uniformity of taxation and regulation policies has enabled a large number of players to enter the market, significantly intensifying the competitive rivalry.
The market was then taken over by the leading tobacco giants through a series of mergers and acquisitions, bringing immediate value to the fledgling market. Big Tobacco companies started competing aggressively acquiring the top e-cigarettes brands and rolled out their own brands with newer and technologically advanced products.
