China bans online sales of e-cigarettes

Nov 04, 2019 16:13 IST

In the latest blow for the nascent vaping industry, China has banned online sales of e-cigarettes. A Chinese regulator and the state tobacco monopoly jointly urged manufacturers and sellers to shut down websites related to the marketing and sale of e-cigarettes. According to a research, China has more than 7.4 million e-cigarette consumers, and it is the largest maker of e-cigarette products. The industry has come under intensifying scrutiny around the globe, with India banning the production, import, sale of e-cigarettes earlier this year in September.
