The vaping market in Indonesia (hereinafter referred to as "Indonesia") has grown steadily since 2015, and experienced a surge in 2016. Since on July 1, 2017, Indonesia imposed a 57% consumption tax on vaping products, which is a high tax rate. Due to traditional tobacco, the growth rate of electronic atomization products has slowed down after 2017. However, the market continued to grow from 2017 to 2019, and the compound growth rate of the market size from 2016 to 2019 was 34.5%.
However, according to a report by 6Wresearch, the spread of the new crown epidemic has led to a decline in the Indonesian vaping market in 2020, due to supply chain and production disruptions. However, the market rose again in 2021, with Indonesia's market capitalization reaching $239 million, an increase of 8% compared to 2020.
Indonesia is Asia's second-largest cigarette market with a population of over 255 million and around two-thirds of Indonesian men consume tobacco-related products, meaning there is a huge market. The Tobacco Atlas states that there are 53.7 million adult smokers and 2.6 million youth smokers in Indonesia (total number: 56.3 million), and it is estimated that Indonesian smokers use about 5%-7% of their monthly income to purchase cigarettes or other tobacco-related products . According to 6Wresearch, the Indonesian vaping market size is expected to witness potential growth during 2020-26.
In Indonesia, vaping products are mainly traded on online platforms (35.3%) and retail stores (64.7%). At the same time, due to the large base of youth in Indonesia, Instagram (“INS” for short) is a social media platform commonly used by local youth. Therefore, Indonesia ranks second among all countries in the number of posts on INS sharing related products such as vaping liquid. Throughout the 2020-26F forecast period, Indonesia will drive the growth of the vaping market through increased distribution channels in hypermarkets and active promotion.
Also, in Indonesia, users of vaping products prefer fruit and candy-flavored pods, as well as products with lower nicotine content.
From the perspective of user gender, male users have become the main force in using vaping products, but with the improvement of local work-life balance, the number of women in the local workplace has increased, and the willingness of women to use vaping products has increased. 6Wresearch predicts that in the future For some time, female consumers will stimulate the revenue of the entire Indonesian vaping market.
