Glass dab rigs' harm reduction market
by linbin on June 17, 2020
There is no denying that we are in an era of rapid technological change. Many products and services are being rapidly changed by technology.
The choice of refusal or embrace is indeed a bottom-level issue and, of course, a question of how to face innovation.
After the dimension of full marketization has been dramatically innovated, many "non-marketization" or "extremely difficult glass bongs standardization" fields are also undergoing reforms, which Internet people are used to call "the second half".
For example, Pinduo entered the mobile Internet through the way of "looking for goods" and achieved e-commerce success through instant consumption. Another example is the "subsidy" method used by the Internet to hire cars, which has changed people's habit of taking taxis ...
Such a market is called "marginal market". At first glance, it is almost impossible, or it is extremely difficult to enter, but the market is real and has unlimited business opportunities lookah seahorse.
After WHO issued the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control in 2005, countries around the world have basically stepped up efforts to ban smoking and control tobacco. This field has always been a highly regulated market and will become more and more strict in the future.
However, sensitive businessmen found the market because there are 1 billion smokers in the world.
One billion smokers! Addiction population with super strong "just need".
How to serve 1 billion smokers, shrewd businessmen seem to have found a solution, which is glass dab rigs.
A story that may be familiar to many people is that at the end of last year, 1,500 employees of JUUL, a US-based glass dab rigs start-up, received a total of 2 billion US dollars worth of dividend bonus, with an average of about 1.3 million US dollars.
While lamenting the "highest year-end award" on social media, people may have overlooked the news behind it: US tobacco giant Altria Group paid US$ 12.8 billion for a 35% stake in Juul Company-the decision to pay a substantial dividend.
At this time, the corresponding Juul company's valuation is 38 billion US dollars.
This valuation level is close to the market value of Jingdong Mall.
There are more stories. online headshop IQOS, once popular, is produced by the international tobacco giant Fimo, and Juul's investor Altria Group is the parent company of Fimo.
See, the big players are not outsiders, they are still international tobacco giants.
By Q3 2018, IQOS has been listed and sold in 43 countries and regions around the world, with tens of millions of consumers worldwide, becoming the world's largest nonflammable glass dab rigs enterprise.
In fact, global tobacco giants, including China Tobacco, are looking for new ways to reduce the harm of traditional tobacco. Of course, they also hope to avoid the impact of "tobacco control and smoking ban".
For example, international giants such as Fillmore International, British American Tobacco and Japan Tobacco have almost all entered the "glass dab rigs" and started the transformation of the tobacco industry.
Obviously, this field is full of big business.
Therefore, instead of "questioning" glass dab rigs, let's analyze its consumers.
Regarding the cognition of glass dab rigs, non-smokers tend to hold unfriendly attitudes. For smokers, if there is a way to "reduce harm" instead of smoking, it is obviously a good plan. After all, "addiction problem" cannot be cut with broadsword. There is also a group of people called Vaper who "play with cigarettes" by spitting out all kinds of cigarette rings, mostly young people. since they do not inhale smoke, there is no harm.
The last group was young people who did not smoke originally, because of the fashion and curiosity of glass dab rigs, they entered the "smoking" group. This is certainly not good.
However, this is almost the "common fault" of young people. Every year, many young people still join the smoking army. They are not unaware of the harm of tobacco. There are always people willing to try everything new on the road of life. Glass dab rigs, like all kinds of electronic products, has certain attraction.
Of course, the Glasdabrigs industry should also introduce policies, self-discipline and a clear "ban". In fact, the glass dab rigs industry does do the same, and neither IQOS nor Juul support selling to teenagers.
For the 1 billion "smokers", we will sell them glass dab rigs, which can reduce the harm by more than 90%, so as to replace the traditional cigarettes, so as to satisfy the "addiction" of smokers, and be relatively healthy without disturbing the surrounding population. This is the original intention of international tobacco giants to enter tattoo glass pipes.
They define this as "harm reduction market".
Because of the strong dependence of nicotine, the market scale is as large as trillions.
Of course, it must be pointed out that, based on the "harm reduction" itself, the domestic efforts in the glass dab rigs field have only just begun, and the current market period is still the "fake machine" time. therefore, many glass dab rigs manufacturers may not have such original intention, and the products they churn out may even bring new harm.
There are always some businessmen coming for quick money.
