Artrix’s latest product, the Wavvy, boasts a unique saw-toothed design and compact size, crafted specifically to grab the attention of style-conscious young people. Its distinctive look helps it stand out on shelves, resonating well with Gen Z shoppers.




Strategic Insight: Evolution of Box-Shaped Disposable Vape Products




Between Q1 2022 and Q1 2024, the market share of these disposables surged by an impressive 92% in U.S. vape sales. This category, as tracked by Artrix across the top 10 bestselling disposable brands in the U.S., is defining a major trend in the market.








These box-shaped disposables, which represented 13% of the sales among these brands, are outpacing the growth of the more traditional flat and columnar shapes.



Another key feature that distinguishes these products is their capacity. Predominantly, box-shaped disposables offer larger capacities—80% boast 1g or more, with 2g configurations accounting for 20% of this segment. This contrasts with the smaller capacities generally found in flat and columnar disposables. Trends from Artrix Infobank data suggest that the dominance of 1g and 2g box-shaped disposables is set to continue, reinforcing their market presence.



On the consumer front, box-shaped disposables mirror the design and discretion of popular nicotine products like the Micro Bar, with its gradient exterior. This makes them highly appealing to young people in North America, born between 1990 and 2007. Given their competitive pricing and distinctive appearance, these products are well-positioned to meet the preferences of Gen Z and are anticipated to see substantial growth in the upcoming years.
