Tobacco vs E-Cigarettes Virtual Roundtable
Beth participated in a virtual roundtable focusing on the market outlook of tobacco and e-cigarettes. Industry experts joined panelists to discuss the following topics:
- Pace of adoption for E-cigarettes and vape kits vs traditional tobacco products. How is the market evolving in 2018 vs your expectations?
- Will Juul continue to harness the lion's share of growth in the e-cigarette market?
- How is the distribution model evolving for nicotine products (c-store, vape shops, online, etc.)? What is your outlook for mix shifts across major channels?
- Views on the FDA's stance on E-cigarettes. Can we expect additional regulation, or continuation of the status quo?
- How easily can the traditional tobacco companies grow/retake share with e-cigarette and vape products? Do you see the tobacco giants doubling down here in developed economies?
