  1. Expanding e-cigarette market to South America is an important decision, because there’s a big untapped market there. I have known many Latin immigrants who are also heavy smokers, male and female. Some of them have switched to e-cigarettes and admit they feel a lot better after that. Distributing e-cigarettes in South America may be very lucrative, since production costs are relatively cheaper and South Americans are keen to try new products.
