The Japanese e-cigarette market is expected to register huge growth in the forecast period. With a rapid rise in the number of consumers addicted to tobacco smoking in Japan, e-cigarettes are gaining value as an alternative to traditional tobacco cigarettes. Tobacco companies are shifting from traditional tobacco products to next-generation vaping devices, attributed to a greater number of the populace, particularly teens, suffering from serious health concerns caused by tobacco intake. With a focus on replacing traditional tobacco cigarettes and providing healthier and less chemical vaping technology. The Japanese market for tobacco alternatives is dominated by heated tobacco, rather than e-cigarettes. Domestic retail of nicotine-containing e-cigarettes is banned, but zero-nicotine vaping remains a complementary category, often combined with other ingredients with perceived benefits, such as vitamins. Personal importation of nicotine-containing e-cigarettes is permitted; however, personal imports are not a major factor in the market and do not seem to be increasing. E-cigarettes and heated tobacco are commonly perceived by Japanese consumers as similar products. However, there is an important market and regulatory differences between them. Tobacco alternatives have grown significantly in popularity among smokers in recent years. Female users are more likely to become soul users of such products. According to the research report "Japan E-Cigarette Market Research Report, 2028," published by Actual Market Research, the market is expected to add USD 1.18 Billion by 2028. The E-cigarette market size is dominated by modular type e-cigarettes as it offers greater customization and has overtaken rechargeable models as the most preferred type of device. Modular e-cigarettes can be refilled by the user, but it also allows the user to regulate the power from the batteries to the atomizer. The e-cigarette and vape market has grown significantly in recent years, as devices have gotten more efficient in terms of battery life and the variety of flavors offered. Furthermore, a wide range of flavors, including menthol. Tobacco, fruits and botanicals, beverages, and sweets are available on the market, attracting a significant number of clients. The manufactures offering of customization capabilities such as temperature control and nicotine dosages is projected to boost product demand. Moreover, players’ continual improvement in new product development is expected to accelerate market expansion. Japan Tobacco Inc. developed tobacco capsules in two new flavors, namely Pianissimo Aria Menthol and Pianissimo Pineapple Peach Yellow Cooler, under the Ploom TECH brand, in March 2019. Similarly, British American Tobacco p.l.c. developed two new cigarettes powered by vaping technology — Vype iSwitch Maxx and Vype iSwitch — for replacing the conventional coil-and-wick heating system, in December 2018. The introduction of a variety of e-cigarettes and vaping devices in the market has made a significant impact on consumers’ attitudes toward smoking. E-cigarettes are increasingly impacting the lifestyle of those addicted to smoking and those seeking to quit tobacco. The fewer negative health impacts of e-cigarettes over combustible cigarettes are the prime reasons affecting the adoption of e-cigarettes among consumers. Due to this, e-cigarette manufacturers are rapidly opening retail outlets and vaping stores to promote their products to cater to the change in lifestyle preferences of consumers in the e-cigarette market. Smoke generated from burning tobacco is equally harmful to humans as it is to the environment. E-cigarettes eliminate the emission of smoke and instead, produce mist, which easily dissolves in the air within seconds. This reduces the side effects of smoking tobacco to a greater extent. As e-cigarettes don’t produce smoke and ash, they can be used in places where cigarette smoking is not allowed due to the harmful health effects posed by traditional cigarettes. On account of this, smokeless and ash-less vaping is driving the e-cigarette market in the country. The Offline segment accounted for the highest market share. Earlier, e-cigarettes were sold in retail outlets such as vape shops and gas stations. These shops assisted customers to try out and test these devices before making a purchase decision is expected to drive the retail store segment growth over the forecast period. The online segment is anticipated to register a significant CAGR over the forecast period. The benefits of an online marketplace in terms of competitive pricing, convenience, and access to a wider variety of products encourage people to purchase e-cigarettes and vape online. The country has also been witnessing a rising demand for e-cigarette products, encouraging sellers to sell e-cigarettes online. Covid-19 Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the global e-cigarette market witnessed a sharp decline. The pandemic forced people to pay attention to their health and quit habits like smoking in order to tackle this situation. Thus, it impeded the demand for e-cigarettes throughout the pandemic period. Further, retail stores and outlets also stopped offering their products in order to abide by the government rules, which hampered the growth of the e-cigarette market. On the country, the ease of lockdown restrictions has increased the sales of e-cigarettes like before.
