Exploring the Czech Vape Market: Growth, Trade Opportunities, and Tax Impacts in 2024


Czech Vape Market Growth & Opportunities

The Czech Republic’s vape market is booming, with revenues expected to hit $110.4 million in 2024. With an annual growth rate of 1.93% projected from 2024 to 2029, the region is witnessing an increasing number of smokers turning to e-cigarettes as a healthier alternative. This shift is making e-cigarettes more popular throughout the country.

Czech Republic: A Strategic Hub for Vape Trade

Strategically positioned in the heart of Europe, the Czech Republic serves as a vital bridge connecting Eastern and Western Europe. This advantageous location not only elevates its status in European politics but also significantly enhances its role in international trade. The Czech Republic’s developed transport network supports efficient logistics for global trade. According to the World Bank’s 2020 Business Environment Report, the Czech Republic ranks first globally for cross-border trade ease, highlighting its efficiency and convenience in the international trade arena.

Czech International Vape Expo 2024

Set for June 22-23 in Prague, the inaugural Czech International Vape Expo will feature around 70 booths spread over 4000 square meters, expecting about 4000 B2B visitors including local store owners and wholesale distributors. This event represents a major opportunity for industry stakeholders to network, explore new products, and discuss market trends.

Impact of Tax Changes on Vape Products in the Czech Republic

Starting in 2024, due to governmental austerity measures, the price of cigarettes in the Czech Republic is set to rise significantly, with a projected increase of at least 8 Czech crowns per pack. This tax hike will affect all nicotine-related products, including e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products. By 2027, cigarette prices are expected to increase by an average of 27 Czech crowns, largely due to annual excise tax increases set by the government.

E-cigarettes will not be spared from these tax increases; a new excise tax will be applied to e-liquids starting next year. For instance, the cost of a 10 ml e-liquid refill is expected to rise by at least 30 Czech crowns in 2024, with a predicted dramatic increase to 120 Czech crowns over the next four years.
