Vape retailers fear heavy blow from display ban, plain packaging

Vape retailers have expressed concern over the government’s yet-to-be-implemented move to ban vape displays and introduce “standard” packaging for the products, saying it will deal a heavy blow to their business. The measure would follow the gazettement of the Control of Smoking Products for Public Health Act 2023 in February, which requires that both tobacco and vape products be sold in plain or standardised packaging.


21.90% of the adult population are current smokers. There are approximately 5.3 million current smokers in Malaysia 42.10% of men are current smokers but only 0.50% of women.
