2022 vaping trends see no end to vaping’s popularity, and the industry and its products are developing and evolving at a rapid pace. So, what’s on the cards for 2022? From devices to flavours and regulation, let’s take a look, in this first part of a two-part discussion.
#1 Flavours – anything goes
When it comes to vaping flavours, there’s already a huge amount on offer. 2022 looks set to deliver more luxurious flavours – imagine an ice mango, double apple or grape! Or what about some more intriguing dessert flavours like strawberry cheesecake, or cinnamon rolls – dessert and vaping all in one! Definitely something to look forward to!
#2 Devices – small yet efficient
Smaller sometimes is better – in terms of convenience that is. Most vapers prefer devices that are easy to handle and use. It’s probable that we’ll see vaping devices like personal charging cases (PCCs) shrink even more, meaning that vapers will be able to carry e-cigarettes or vaping pens wherever they want! The trick is to not compromise on the vapour-producing ability. So, while efficiency increases, so too does ease of use.
#3 Stricter regulation (sorry)
We’ve spoken before about vaping and the so-called sin tax. Year after year we see the usual increases in duties on wine, beer and cigarettes. 2022 added an additional category to the sin tax collective – vaping products. Government has proposed the introduction of a new tax on vaping products of at least R2.90 per millilitre from 1 January 2023. Probably not something that will inhibit sales and usage, but good to keep an eye on developments in this regard.
#4 Smartphone-oriented devices?
Wouldn’t it be cool to connect your vaping devices to your smartphone via Bluetooth? Sound far-fetched? Not really, it’s been on the cards for some time now. This would enable users to get relevant info about vape status for instance – another e-convenience in our digital world.
#5 Ice, ice baby
Possibly not something that will be as popular in winter as in summer, ice liquids combine enticing flavours with cool and refreshing ice to satisfy the vaper’s soul. And on the plus side, the sale and popularity of summer vape flavours may surge too. It’s a win-win!
These are just some of the 2022 vaping trends set to take the vaping scene by storm. Our next blog elaborates on a few more, so don’t miss it. In the meantime, head on over to Vaper’s Corner and check out our products.
