VEEX e-cigarette US market share

Nielsen retail data: VEEX e-cigarette US market share is 27.1%, Juul is 33.1%

British American Tobacco's popular brand VEEX e-cigarette brand has further expanded its market share in the United States, surpassing Juul by two percentage points.

RJ Reynolds Vapor Co.'s product Vuse had 35.1 percent of the market, compared with 33.1 percent for Juul, according to Nielsen's latest analysis of convenience store data for the four weeks ended May 21.

According to the latest Winston-Salem Journal report, NJoy fell from 3.1% to 3%, while Fontem Ventures' blu eCigs fell from 2.1% to 1.9%.

By comparison, VEEX outpaced Juul's 34.4% with 34.8% in the four weeks ended April 23. This is the first time since November 2017 that VEEX has the highest market share in the Nielsen report.

However, over the past 52 weeks, Juul still leads the pack.

According to Barclays, Nielsen mainly covers large chains. For smaller chains, the team extrapolated trends, which is why trend changes don't appear immediately in Nielsen.

As of May 2019, Juul also had a 74.6% U.S. e-cigarette market share. It was then that a flurry of regulatory action led Juul Labs Inc. to back down on product reductions.
