Application of eSUN Biodegradable Injection Plastic in Electronic Cigarette Industry


According to iiMedia Research, the global retail sales of e-cigarettes have grown from $16.1 billion in 2016 to $45.3 billion in 2020. In 2021, the market size of China's electronic cigarette industry was 116.00 billion yuan, which has increased 1.7 times than the former year. Among these, export is the main market for electronic cigarette sales.


Relevant consulting analysts believe that with policies and regulations clarified, e-cigarettes will grow more in the future. It is expected that China's e-cigarette market will reach 295.27 billion yuan in 2023.




*Smoking is harmful to health. Minors are prohibited from using e-cigarettes. Non-smokers are not recommended to use e-cigarettes.


On January 12, according to the overseas reports, e-liquid manufacturer Riot Labs claimed to have launched the world's first low-carbon disposable e-cigarette. And all parts of the product can be reused. (The original news can be copied to the browser to view or click the end of the article to read the original text)


The e-cigarette industry is developing rapidly, meanwhile, the standards of related products are also becoming clearer and stricter. In the era of the new plastic, e-cigarette products will turn into environmentally friendly and low carbon items gradually. Whether it is the shell, oil storage cotton, filter tip or other film packaging, it can be made of more environmentally friendly materials.


For example, the raw material of eSUN biodegradable injection plastic comes from polylactic acid (PLA), which is made by crops fermentation renewable resources, such as corn. The production process of polylactic acid is pollution-free and can be biodegraded, which made it an ideal green polymer material.


Recently, eSUN biodegradable injection plastic has successfully expanded in the electronic cigarette industry.

The electronic cigarette plastic shell made of eSUN biodegradable injection plastic not only meets the requirements of low carbon release and environmental protection, but also has the advantages of toughness, strength, heat resistance, and scratch resistance. The material has a short processing cycle and is easy to form, which can greatly improve production efficiency. In terms of product design, it can meet the transparent color requirements and color customization.



After the electronic cigarette has been used, the biodegradable injection plastic shell can also be recycled and reused.


eSUN has mastered polylactic acid (PLA) industrialization and recycling technology. The company can obtain lactate by recycling and reusing it to produce a variety of "double-high" lactate, which realizes the recycling and efficient utilization of resources. Utilization not only improves economic benefits but also considered the environment, which agrees with the future development trend.
