The Asia-Pacific e-cigarette market is experiencing growth due to several factors, including rising consumer awareness, government initiatives to combat tobacco use, the growing prevalence of tobacco and drug abuse in the region, and the expanding e-commerce industry. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), smoking-related cardiovascular diseases claim the lives of one million people in the Asia-Pacific region annually. Additionally, approximately one in four individuals in the region are smokers, putting them at a higher risk of developing cardiovascular conditions. Moreover, non-smokers who are exposed to second-hand smoke also face an elevated risk of heart disease and stroke, contributing to approximately 168,000 deaths in the region each year.
