After its arrival in Australia and the United Arab Emirates, KIWI is now entering Japan, a country that is a true reference for innovation and technology worldwide.
Thanks to the collaboration with BEYOND VAPE JAPAN, KIWI will be distributed in the Japanese market, giving more and more people the opportunity to change their habits and improve their lifestyles.
Vaping in Japan: an unstoppable growth
Japan is currently witnessing a revolution in the smoking world with the increasing popularity of vaping. Electronic cigarettes are a less harmful alternative to traditional tobacco, and more and more smokers to embrace this new trend.
The vaping industry in Japan has experienced significant growth in recent years, driven by the growing awareness of the damage caused by traditional smoking and the search for healthier options. Government restrictions and regulations on the use of electronic cigarettes, thus protecting consumers.
The largest multinational company in Japan recently released its sector's financial results: cigarette sales decreased by over 18% in 2022, surpassing the 11% decline in sales observed in 2021. To provide a practical perspective, traditional cigarette sales in Japan during the first 9 months of 2016 amounted to 144.8 billion, however, six years later, during the same period in 2022, they were 72.9 billion.
In Japan the market for conventional cigarettes has literally halved in the last 6 years. This epochal revolution demonstrates how the global journey towards a smoke-free world is rapidly approaching its goal.
