China’s Vape Industry Really Isn’t Slowing Down Anytime Soon

It’s no surprise that China is the manufacturing hub of the e-cigarette industry. From fashion to technology, the majority of the worlds biggest brands choose China to manufacture their products purely for the price of goods, and why wouldn’t you.

We all know that nearly anything made on home soil is going to break the bank, but it always comes back to quality vs quantity.

In the past, Chinese goods were synonymous with bad quality, but if there’s one thing the Chinese absolutely nail these days (besides exceptional knock-off Louis Vuitton hand bags) it’s the devices that have revolutionised the way we consume our sweet, sweet vapor!

Although, due to China’s main focus being wholesale export it’s actually really uncommon to find retail stores, so purchases may need to be made either online or by visiting one of the many industrial areas during your visit.

The video above – courtesy of Vice – shows just how China came to the party as the leader of the manufacturing game.

Chances are the device you are holding has the “made in China” tag on it, probably only figuratively though. Of course, there are products out there that have the proud “Made in America” stamp on it, but when we are talking volume and the huge demand for e-cigarettes, China really do have it covered.

Events: IECIE Vape Shenzhen eCig

As a country with a population of over 1.3 billion it’s no surprise that when it comes to events and trade shows, they really do know how to put on a show.


Compared to shows throughout the USA and Europe they’re on an entirely different level, but this is the appeal for so many businesses looking to exhibit their brand in the mecca of vape.

On the 14th-16th of April China will play host to the world’s largest e-cigarette event: The IECIE SHENZHEN ECIG EXPO.

Situated in the Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Centre, the IECIE Shenzhen eCig Expo will spread across a 37,500mexhibition area, hosting 1,500 brands and 50,000 professional visitors from 45 countries and regions.

Walking through the halls past the colossal stands you’ll find online retailers, trading companies, distributors, overseas brands and buyers, retailers, franchisers, group purchasers, media, and avid vapers.

You’ll also find the team from Vapetrotter.com – who are one of the main media sponsors for the event – as they join the tens of thousands of people who make their way from all around the globe to check out the latest and greatest products, from e-liquids, hardware, packaging, and accessories all exhibiting at the biggest vape trade show on the planet.
