The National Cancer Institute reveals some key figures on the electronic cigarette in France

How many people have already tried the electronic cigarette?

In 2020, 34.7% of the French metropolitan population had already tried the electronic cigarette. 5.4% of French people said they were currently vaping (compared to 3.8% in 2017) and 4.3% used it daily.

In 2018, only, 1% of daily vapers have never smoked tobacco. They represented less than 0.01% of the total adult population.

For vapers and ex-vapers, the use of the electronic cigarette meets an objective of stopping smoking (6 French out of 10) or reducing their consumption (3 French out of 10). 30% of vapoteurs use the electronic cigarette with an objective of reducing the consumption of tobacco cigarettes.
