Vapes and the Future: Industry Trends, Regulations, and Environmental Impact – Vaping, or what is better known as electronic cigarettes, has become a trend in various circles of society in the world, including in Indonesia. This trend has increased in recent years, as more and more people become aware of the dangers of conventional smoking.
The global vape industry is expected to grow by 12.5% per year from 2022 to 2027. This growth is driven by a number of factors, including increasing awareness of the dangers of conventional smoking, increasing numbers of new smokers, and increasing regulation of conventional cigarettes.
Vape Industry Trends
There are several trends in the vape industry that can be observed in recent years, including:
Rising popularity of disposable pods
Disposable pods are disposable vapes that do not require refilling e-liquid or batteries. Disposable pods offer a number of advantages, such as ease of use, affordability, and portability.
Increasing use of liquid saltnic
Saltnic liquid is a vape liquid with a high nicotine content. Saltnic liquid is absorbed more quickly by the body so it is more effective in reducing dependence on nicotine.
Increasing use of vape among young people
Young people are one of the main target markets for the vape industry. The vape industry targets young people with various strategies, such as the use of aggressive marketing and attractive vape designs.
Regulations on vaping continue to develop in various countries around the world, including in Indonesia. This regulation aims to protect public health and to prevent the use of e-cigarettes by children and teenagers.
In Indonesia, regulations on vaping are regulated in Minister of Health Regulation (Permenkes) Number 28 of 2018 concerning Supervision of Alternative Tobacco Products. This Minister of Health Regulation regulates various aspects related to vaping, from production, distribution, to use.
Environmental Impact of Vaping
Vaping can have an impact on the environment, especially regarding its waste. Vape waste, including batteries, pods and liquids, can become an environmental problem if not managed properly.
Waste vape batteries can contain heavy metals, such as lead and mercury, which can pollute the environment. Pod and liquid vape waste can become plastic waste which is difficult to decompose.
The Future of Vaping
The future of vaping remains uncertain. There are several factors that can influence the future of vaping, including:
Regulation of vaping can affect the level of public acceptance of vaping. Strict regulations could make vaping less popular.
Further research into the health effects of vaping could influence public perceptions of vaping. Research showing that vaping is more dangerous than conventional cigarettes could make vaping less popular.
The development of vape technology can make vaping safer and more popular.
In general, vaping has the potential to be a safer alternative to conventional cigarettes. However, vaping still has health risks, especially if used long term. Strict regulations and further research into the health effects of vaping are needed to ensure that vaping is a safe and effective alternative for reducing nicotine dependence.
Here are some things you can do to ensure that vaping is a safe and effective alternative for reducing dependence on nicotine:
need to implement strict regulations on vaping, especially regarding safety and health aspects.
need to produce safe and effective vapes.
