WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwired) -- 07/14/14 -- The Smoke-Free Alternatives Trade Association (SFATA), dedicated to advocacy, awareness and education in the vapor products industry, today announced it added 102 members during the first half of 2014, bringing its total membership to 171 companies. The increase makes SFATA the largest association of vapor product distributors, manufacturers, and retailers in the U.S.
According to SFATA Executive Director Cynthia Cabrera, the surge in membership coincided with the trade group's annual Spring Conference, which marked the first industry-wide discussion on vapor product standards. As the industry matures, SFATA is leading a wave of new entrepreneurs who have accelerated the growth by offering customized products such as open-tank systems and e-liquids.
"As the economy is rebounding, many of these businesses are helping the recovery by creating jobs through innovation," commented Cabrera. "Vapor products are fundamentally driven by technology, so there are continuous opportunities for growth and enhancement."
The vapor industry has expanded significantly in recent years as vapor products like electronic cigarettes have become more popular among smokers seeking an alternative to combustible cigarettes. The overall industry is expected to grow to $10 billion or more by 2017, according to reports.
As the leading professional group in the vapor category, SFATA offers members the tools and resources to grow their businesses, help customers understand the benefits of vapor products, and navigate the regulatory and legislative processes necessary to ensure the continued health of the category.
Founded in 2012, The Smoke-Free Alternatives Trade Association is the largest trade association in the vapor products industry. With 171 members, SFATA builds the networks necessary to support grassroots efforts and research endeavors important to the future of the industry.
