The top vaping trends of 2023 & beyond: what to expect in the world of e-cigarettes

Since e-cigarettes were introduced, we've seen a considerable shift towards vaping. Many smokers have been able to quit and the World Health Organisation confirming vaping is 95% safer than smoking. The standard vape kits of 2007 are better than ever, but there are also plenty of other trends to explore.

In this post, we're going to do just that. So sit back, relax and find out what's hot in the vaping world this year!

Refillable disposable vapes
We know, refillable & disposable? With products like the Aspire R1 rechargeable and refillable disposable vape leading the way into helping people transition from disposable vapes to traditional vape kits, with a focus on cost, it’s obvious we will see more refillable disposable vapes take the market by storm as vapers realise the money they will be saving by using one.

All-in-one (AIO) vape kits
With best sellers such as the Aspire PockeX AIO kit, it would be of no surprise to anyone if we saw more all-in-one vape kits pop up. 

Designed to be small and discreet and removing the worry of having to carry spare parts such as tanks or coils, they are perfect for on-the-go and for all the stealth vapers out there.

A even more diverse range of e-liquids 
We've seen so many unique flavours in 2022, and e-liquid manufacturers are constantly coming up with new and exciting combinations.

There's only so much you can do with tobacco and menthol, but we're seeing a massive increase in e-liquid flavours, including drink, candy and dessert blends.

However, there's always room for more, and manufacturers know that remaining creative is central to surviving in a highly competitive market.

In the future, we might see more weird and wonderful concoctions, including alcoholic drinks and healthy combinations.

Disposable vapes continue to be sought-after
According to Retail Technology Review, Elf bar sales skyrocketed between 2021 and 2022, with an 883% increase. These shocking figures show just how popular disposable vapes are, and while many wrote them off in the beginning, they're certainly putting up a fight.

One of the reasons people love disposable vapes is the sheer convenience they offer. All you have to do is remove the cover and vape to your heart's content. Also, these vapes don't compromise flavours, so you can sample as many as you want.

Stricter regulations might be introduced
There's no doubt about it; vaping is here to stay, but that doesn't mean more regulations won't come into play. The UK takes a strong stance on teenage vaping and regulates the flavourings of e-cigarettes (Commons Library).

However, we'll likely see even more rules and restrictions in the next few years, which could be stricter rules on teenage vaping and regulating where people can use e-cigarettes.

Of course, this is all speculation at the moment, but it's something to keep an eye on.

More focus on 'ice' ranges
If you're unfamiliar with the term, 'ice' refers to menthol or mint-flavoured e-liquids. The scorching summer meant many vapers turned to the new ice combinations for some much-needed refreshment.

More and more vapers are looking for a cooling sensation when they vape, and manufacturers are starting to create lines of e-liquid that cater to this demand.

We predict that we'll see even more ice ranges in the next few years and an increase in the popularity of ice devices such as pod mods.

Vaping devices continue to get smaller
Let's face it; nobody wants to carry around a large vape device, but while traditional pens are smaller, they're often only suitable for starters. It will get to the point where you want a stronger hit of e-liquid and nicotine, but mod kits are heavy.

As manufacturers face high competition, they'll likely start creating smaller devices, which retain their power but are much easier to carry around.

We've seen many tech devices evolve through the years, with today's smartphones being a classic example, so there could be a lot to look forward to in the future.

However, if you're looking for convenient and cost-effective vape kits, UK vaping brand Evapo has an extensive collection.

Vapes could pair with your smartphone
If you thought your vape device couldn't get any smarter, you might be surprised. In the next few years, we could start to see devices that pair with our smartphones, giving us even more control over our vaping experience.

While we can't exactly say what will happen, the technology could allow you to monitor your nicotine intake to adjust the wattage and temperature of your device.

Of course, this is all just speculation at the moment, but it's certainly an exciting prospect for the future of vaping.

More unique vape accessories
While there are plenty of different vape devices and e-liquids on the market, sometimes it can feel like everyone you know is using the same products.

However, this isn't necessarily bad, as it allows you to stand out from the crowd with some unique vape accessories. After all, your vaping experience should be personal to you, so why not make it as individual as possible?

Many different types of vape accessories are already available, such as drip tips and replacement coils. In the next few years, we predict we'll see even more innovative and exciting products.

Final thoughts
So, there you have it - our vision of vaping trends coming in 2023! 2022 was a colossal year for vaping and there's every reason to believe that current trends will continue and new ones will develop. With so much excitement surrounding the vaping industry, competition is fierce, but some companies manage to survive.
