Vaping in the News: Are Vape Shops Dead?

Vaping in the News: Are Vape Shops Dead?

Vaping has once again cropped up in the news, but this time it has nothing to do with studies into health benefits or whether vapes should be available on prescription; but instead the economic state of the vaping market is being called in to question.

The Article

The BBC recently posted an article online implying that the vaping market has become so saturated that new vape shops can no longer survive.

An interview with a vape shop owner speaks of people opening vape shops left, right and centre looking to cash in on the booming vape market. He tells how there are now so many vape shops that they are fighting for business and many are drowning.

It is true that the vaping market has taken off extremely quickly, and while it may seem that there are now vape shops popping up everywhere, this could simply be down to the fact that the vaping industry is still new, and so people are not used to seeing vape shops in the same way they would see coffee shops or shoe shops.

However, the article does not seem to consider that these vape shops are failing not because they are in a saturated market, but simply because in the current economic state it is not uncommon for new businesses to not be successful.

A good point that is raised in the article is that customers have come to expect a certain level of service, knowledge and variety of stock from vape shops. This means it is difficult for people who have a limited knowledge or are not able to get their hands on the latest stock, will struggle to run a successful vape shop.
