Australia’s stock of steam products, such as replaceable coils and smoke bombs, is shrinking rapidly as a result of the isolation measures implemented in China as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.
With 90% of the world’s steam electronic cigarette hardware produced in Shenzhen, China, Australia’s steam electronic cigarette inventory is decreasing, retailers and distributors are worried. Some people have run out of stock, others are worried that their supply will last only a few weeks. “We feel tremendous pressure,” said Chris monchgesang, chief operating officer of vape traders, a major distributor. “It’s not the best time.”
Since China’s annual Lunar New Year public holiday, due to the prevention and control of the epidemic, a number of blockades and isolation policies have been implemented, which means that many people in China cannot return to work.
Monchgesang pointed out that the next most likely step for Australian industry is to start importing from the United States and the United Kingdom. “It all depends on whether the coronavirus starts to weaken or continues. Imports from the U.S. and UK markets are the last option, as there are larger hardware inventories in both markets. But they’ve run out of them. They’ll run out one day. “
