The recent decision by Hyundai Motors to start putting USB ports in all its cars instead of the industry standard cigarette lighters has been seen as an acknowledgement to the growth of the e liquid market.
Austin, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/07/2013 -- Further proof e liquid and related products have come to stay can be seen in the recent move by Korean automotive giant Hyundai Motors that have decided to stop the industry related trend of putting a cigarette lighter in vehicles and replacing it with a USB port. In breaking a tradition that has been in place since the late 1920’s when cigar lighters started appearing in the United States cars and further consolidated in 1928 CASCO in Bridgeport applied for the patent the first automotive cigar lighter. Later the modern lighter was introduced by Casco in 1956. This has been seen a break from the industry tradition that will irk many driving smokers.
Yet according to many it is being seen as a sign that even if e cig and also annual sales of related items such as e liquid are expected to reach volumes of over $1.7 billion in 2013 which is less than 1 % of annual tobacco sales, this industry is going to grow large. Also it has also been hailed as a break through as there have been cries from vapers to make this a standard feature and in frustration they have resulted to DIY options. It has been estimated that by 2020 the e cig liquid industry will be valued at $20 billion per annum and would have easily exceeded tobacco. This means that for Hyundai Motors with sales of over $84 billion in 2012 has become the world pioneer in embracing e cigarettes globally.
Whilst it may be seen as that this move has been made to accommodate the users of electrical gadgets such as cell phones and GPS units, it is the removal of the familiar cigarette lighter and replacing it with a USB port that is the same as the unit that can be used for recharging e liquid dispersers. There have been a large number of people that have started using the e cigarette either exclusively instead of regular cigarettes or together with tobacco cigarettes. With estimates that there will be more e cigarette liquid users than tobacco users within a decade Hyundai Motors has been called innovative.
What must be known is that regardless of the upcoming rulings by on e cigarettes and e liquid manufacture by the FDA in the US and the European Union, there is no doubt that tobacco smoking is losing out to this new innovative smoking option. And with no documented fatalities that can be directly blamed on e cigarettes the amount of users has been predicted to keep on growing as the search for the best e liquid continues.
