R.J. Reynolds’ top-selling Vuse electronic cigarette saw an increase in market share after a recent small decline, according to the latest Nielsen convenience store report for the four-week period ending Dec. 2.

Vuse’s market share rose from 41.5 percent to 42 percent, surpassing No. 2 Juul which dropped from 24.7 percent to 24.3 percent.

In May 2019, Juul held a dominant 74.6 percent share of the U.S. e-cigarette market, but regulatory actions led to a decrease in product availability.

Despite Altria Group’s ownership of No. 3 NJoy, their market share remained stagnant at 2.6 percent.

Fontem Ventures’ blu eCigs, affiliated with Imperial Brands Plc, also had no change in market share at 1.2 percent. Overall, the e-cigarette category saw an 8 percent decline during this period.
