Project Vape Manifest Report Now Available

Our first report, called Vape Index 2015, is now available on the EcigIntelligence website. 


Report Description: This unique and exclusive report analyses data on 540 vape shops across 42 U.S. States collated through a joint venture called Project Vape Manifest. The report contains essential information on vape store revenue attributed to e-liquid, tanks and atomisers, and mods, including regional breakdowns of the top selling brands, flavours, nicotine strengths and bottle sizes. It also contains valuable information on ownership/franchising models, typical in-store retail environment as well as what vape store owners and managers think the future holds for the industry in the United States.
