THE vaping industry has become a flourishing business in Malaysia, with a 42% share of the total tobacco market — surpassing that of illicit cigarettes (37%) and legal cigarettes (21%), a study by the Malaysian Vape Chamber of Commerce (MVCC) in December 2020 reveals. But until today, there have not been any specific regulations governing the sale and use of vapes and electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes).

Vape players have spent years calling for the government to regulate the industry. Yet, sales of vaporiser liquids containing nicotine and e-cigarettes remain illegal at the federal level, although they are openly sold and easily accessible.
