Welcome to the Electronic Cigarette Market!
What is an Electronic Cigarette?
Electronic cigarettes are rapidly becoming popular in the United States as an alternative to smoking traditional tobacco cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes are electrical devices composed of a battery, an atomizer, and a packet containing nicotine, flavoring, and a propylene glycol or glycerin liquid base. Electronic cigarettes have a sensor that utilizes the battery to vaporize the nicotine/flavoring/liquid into water vapor, which is then inhaled by the user just as they would with a regular tobacco cigarette. It looks like you are smoking, even the tip glows, but you’re not.
Benefits of the Electronic Cigarette
One of the first benefits you notice with electronic cigarettes is there is no odor. No bad breath, your clothes and hair won’t have that burnt tobacco smell. When you use an electronic cigarette, you won’t be driving away your friends with the foul-smelling smoke of tobacco cigarette smoking.

Each year, over Six Million deaths are directly attributed to smoking traditional cigarettes. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates almost 50 thousand premature deaths are caused annually to non-smokers by, so-called, second hand smoke in the U.S. alone. In addition to the smoking related deaths, there are several other illnesses that are either caused, or exacerbated, by the combustion of tobacco. Several hundreds of thousands of injuries are reported each year, primarily due to fires, that are directly tied to smoking traditional tobacco cigarettes. Smoking cigarettes is the number one cause of house fires in the U.S.
Besides the effect on the human health, the environmental impact of burning tobacco is great. There are enough cigarette butts discarded every day, in the U.S. alone, to fill a 2500 cubic meter (88,000 cubic foot) hole, about the dimensions of an Olympic-sized pool. Over the course of a year, about 4.5 trillion cigarette butts are discarded.
