According to the US media Baltimore post examiner, after a series of targeted accusations and prosecutions and the introduction of various laws to restrict e-cigarettes in the United States, Juul e-cigarettes, once popular in the United States, are like a tiger with teeth pulled out, allowing disposable cigarettes to gradually erode their market share.
The article points out that although the number of young people using e-cigarettes in the United States has not decreased significantly, many teenagers who once liked Juul turned to other brands because Juul stopped selling fruit flavored e-cigarettes.
The following is the full text:
Are teenagers still infatuated with Juul? The short answer is "not a lot." The truth is that many teenagers are turning to disposable e-cigarettes like puff. But in this article, we'll take a closer look at Juul's health care crisis to explain why so many teenagers still use disposable e-cigarettes.
At present, there are many brands of disposable e-cigarette products in the United States, which is mainly attributed to the rapid expansion of young e-cigarette users due to the emergence of Juul, which controls about 50% of the disposable e-cigarette market in 2019. Now, however, many teenagers are moving from Juul to other brands.
In the past, Juul has paved the way for other brands by promoting disposable aerosol products as a safe alternative to traditional cigarettes. The company risks fines and product seizures in its unethical practices.
Soon after that, New York state banned most flavored e-cigarettes across the state. Michigan and San Francisco have also banned e-cigarettes.
The ban comes as a result of last year's outbreak of electronic aerosol lung disease in the United States, where the CDC identified hundreds of severe lung diseases caused by aerosols.
The Centers for Disease Control and prevention also reported dozens of deaths from the use of e-cigarettes.
However, although Juul's product was not the cause of these deaths, the CDC still told Americans "consider not using electronic cigarette products."
Even though the ban on e-cigarettes has protected American teenagers, the popularity of other disposable e-cigarettes continues to reduce Juul's share of the youth market, and many teenagers have moved to other brands such as bang, crush, dripmore and puff. Obviously, Juul can't satisfy teenagers' preference for disposable e-cigarettes.
Banning the use of the product could reduce the number of teenagers addicted to disposable e-cigarettes, and it could hurt adults who are interested in quitting.
Other disposable items are now in the lead because of taste restrictions.
Other brands, such as ezzy oval, gost vapor, helix bar and many others, often introduce new flavors that appeal to teenagers.
With the impressive taste of disposable e-cigarettes (such as guava ice, blueberry and countless other flavors), it's not hard to understand why so many teenagers are switching from Juul to other devices. Because Juul simply can't provide enough varieties to maintain its position in the e-cigarette industry.
Parents are also upset about the widespread use of disposable e-cigarettes by teenagers. These young people are becoming addicted to these nicotine infusions. This may lead to the decline of their performance and the deterioration of their social life.
Some parents believe that disposable items are making an entire generation addicted to nicotine. Even if Juul is no longer popular, the company has sparked a one-off e-cigarette epidemic, and other brands are still gaining popularity among teenagers.
Last year, due to the widespread use of Juul, many students secretly used the product in schools, and the school bathroom was the most popular place for students. To limit the popularity of e-cigarettes in schools, hundreds of school districts in the United States have installed electronic smoke detectors in their bathrooms, and some bathroom doors have been removed, making it more difficult to hide e-cigarettes.
Juul's design is considered to be a problem for teenagers to use. The company's devices are stylish and look like flash drives, making them easy to hide.
Other disposable e-cigarette brands have followed suit. Unlike the larger oiled e-cigarettes, these brands produce disposable e-cigarettes that are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. Moreover, the disposable electronic cigarette does not leave lingering cigarette smell, which makes the atomization even easier to hide.
Although the use of e-cigarettes can help adults get rid of traditional smoking habits, there is no doubt that Juul's popularity has increased the number of teenagers using e-cigarettes. According to the FDA, more than 3.6 million teenagers used e-cigarettes in 2018, while more than 4 million American teenagers regularly used e-cigarettes in 2019.
Many of these teenagers no longer use Juul. With innovative disposable electronic cigarette technology and taste entering the market, most people are turning to other brands. And, while young people continue to use e-cigarettes, Juul no longer has the market as it used to be.
