What Age Groups Use Electronic Cigarettes?

By: Matt

Over the course of a few years, e-cigarettes have grown tremendously in popularity. While they’re still relatively new, enough have purchased the devices for us to get some insight into the question put forth above.
Also, as you begin using a new invention like the electronic cigarette, you’re naturally interested in who else uses them?

Are they reserved strictly for 20 somethings?

Or do older, more established adults use e-cigarettes?

While it’s difficult to give precise answers, a recent survey conducted by cdc.gov sheds some light on the matter.

Within a 65-day time period, the forum site asked the simple question of age and if they used an electronic cigarette. A total of 562 individuals casted votes in the survey.

As you can see from the chart, those in their 30s and 40s constitute by far the majority of e-cigarette users – not too far behind falls those in their 20s.

Rounding out the results are users in their 50s, 60s, 80s and 70s respectively. Vapers in their 50s in fact are almost as numerous as those in their 20s.

One interesting point revealed by this poll – adoption of electronic cigarettes isn’t limited to one age group.
Many products and services out there only apply, or appeal, to certain age groups.

E-cigarettes though are different and attract a broad range of age groups. While we don’t have data readily available, we can also assume that other demographic indicators are just as diverse when it comes to e-cigarettes.
This poll was completely un-scientific.

And while we’re sure there are vapers in their teenage years, we do not market or sell Modern Vapor e-cigarettes to anyone under 18 years of age.
Seeing the diversity of age ranges is certainly inspiring though. We thank Electronic Cigarette Use Among Adults – CDC for conducting this survey.
