To say that the vape industry is popular is a huge understatement. It’s estimated that the industry will be worth $47.11 billion by 2025.

But how did vaping become so popular in the first place?

Keep reading as we examine five factors that led to the rise of the vape industry.

1. Juul’s Popularity

Whether you know next to nothing about vaping or you’re an experienced vape enthusiast yourself, you’ve undoubtedly heard of Juul before. The e-cig manufacturer is so big that they’ve become synonymous with the vaping itself.

Hang around any vape shop long enough and you’re bound to hear at least one person use the terms “vaping” and “Juuling” interchangeably.

Juul is so powerful that they ended 2018 with 76% of the market.

2. Vaping Is an Efficient Way to Stop Smoking

Thinking about replacing your cigarettes with an e-cig? Choosing the right nicotine dosage for your vape juice can help you say goodbye to cigarettes for good.

While the science on vaping isn’t clear yet, all studies point to at least one positive thing to come from the rise of vaping. It’s a wonderful way to stop smoking.

The New England Journal of Medicine found that 18% of study participants who vaped ditched cigarettes entirely after a year. In comparison, only about 9% of the nicotine-replacement group was cigarette-free after the same period.

3. There’s a Flavor for Everything

Part of the fun of vaping comes from choosing your experience.

Whether you prefer a classic menthol flavor or you’d rather your clouds taste and smell like your favorite sugary cereal, there are hundreds of e-juice flavors to choose from.

4. Teenagers and Peer Pressure

Not everything surrounding vaping is positive. Sure, it can help you stop smoking. But for many teens, it’s a gateway to nicotine.

The U.S. is in the midst of a troubling time in which millions of grade-schoolers are getting their hands on e-cigs.

Some of it comes down to good old-fashioned peer pressure. As long as there’s a trend to follow, you can be sure that teens are right there behind it.

But part of the concern stems from how teens are getting e-cigs in the first place. Most stores have age requirements, much like traditional cigarettes. Still, kids are turning to stores as well as friends and family to get their fix of nicotine.

5. Competitive Vaping Adds an Air of Fun

When you think of competitions, smoking is probably the last thing that crosses your mind. But believe it or not, there’s a whole underground competitive vaping scene that puts the e-cig experience in a whole other light.

Competitors treat their vape rigs like a street racer treats their car. Hundreds of dollars go into customizing the ultimate rig to enhance every aspect of performance.

There are competitions for just about everything from the biggest cloud to the most creative stunts.

Thinning the Cloud of the Vape Industry

At this point, it’s clear that the vape industry is here to stay. It’s a multi-billion dollar industry complete with its pros and cons.

Whether or not that staying power is a good thing is up to you. Still, it’s fascinating to look at how this juggernaut came to be.
