eCommerce was already estimated to grow by 50% from 2020 to 2023. Now it’s set to grow even more.
With millions of people currently stuck at home, people are taking advantage of the lockdown by spending shopping online more often.
This is amazing news for you!
Why? Well, now more people are spending money, now is one of the best times to cash in on this opportunity.
However, you can’t just sell anything online. If that were the case, we’d all be millionaires now, right?
The smarter solution is to take advantage of the fast growing trends. New trends that have opened up a new world of opportunity to earn more money with.
With this in mind, here is a list of 10 products currently trending in the hottest niches.
1) Neck Gaiters.
Most people would consider a neck gaiter as something you only wear to places like the desert, a blizzard, or other windy conditions.
But, in the blink of an eye, neck gaiters have changed from a simple accessory to an essential medical supply, as more people are recognizing the importance of their use.
Plus, with face masks now becoming a mandated essential in the US, demand is only set to soar from here onwards. Making now the perfect opportunity to add neck gaiters to your product range.
To find neck gaiters that you can print designs on, head over to Printful. They’ve recently released a new line of neck gaiters, which many other sellers are seeing a lot of success with.
2) Cooking Aprons
Being indoors all day allows people to devote more time to their favorite hobbies, including baking.
And with a shortage in bread, people are compromising by making their own, which correspondingly has led to a higher demand of baking supplies—especially cooking aprons.
Printify is one of the few websites which currently sell aprons, so maybe looking there would be a great place to start.
3) Chopping Boards
Print on demand isn’t just limited to clothing. There are so many quirky and unique products you can print onto, like chopping boards.
Used for almost every cooking encounter, custom chopping boards are another snazzy way to add style to your kitchen—and for some, make the cooking process all the more enjoyable.
People like to engrave statements, words or sayings onto chopping boards. For instance, “Sam’s kitchen” or “Amy the queen of cakes.” Small yet meaningful message like this can be the perfect conversation starter in the kitchen.
Plus, It’s no doubt they’ll be used more often, now that restaurants and food stores are on a temporary close.
If this sounds like a product you’re interested in, Teelaunch offers both wooden and glass chopping boards that you can customize and add to your store.
4) Latte Mugs
Latte Mugs are seeing a higher demand despite the coronavirus pandemic.
Previously, if you wanted to enjoy a cup of coffee, you’d take a trip down to your local cafe.
But now this isn’t an available option, people are making their favorite espresso shot from the comfort of their own homes.
Coffee is simply one of those drinks that are loved by many. And since many people rely on it for an energy boost, it’s not something that can be easily substituted.
Although people may feel restricted being indoors all day, the quarantine has allowed gamers to game even more!
And what better prized possession do gamers need other than headphones to chat and connect with others.
While there aren’t a ton of gaming-related products to print designs, Teelaunch is one of the only websites to offer two custom headphones.
Both are Bluetooth and have a built-in microphone, an ideal type for any regular gamer.
6. Sports Bras
It’s easy to assume that being stuck at home could possibly lead people to become lazy and procrastinate.
For this current case, however, it’s the opposite—people are keeping themselves busy through more physical activity.
Because physical activity requires appropriate gym wear, sports bras are becoming an increasingly popular accessory to wear when working out.
Printful may be a useful place to explore custom sports bras. What’s great is that you can place your design anywhere on the bra, instead of being limited to the mid-section.
Being tied at home means employees can ditch their usual work uniform, and stack up on comfortable loungewear that they can ‘laze’ around the house with. And what other better loungewear is there than sweatpants to laze around the house with!
Not only are sweatpants common to wear at home, but they’re also a trend set to keep growing from here onwards. Even after the coronavirus pandemic has ceased, it’s highly likely that many employees will still be required to work remotely, to save on labor costs. So, be sure to take advantage of this.
8) Baby onesies
Now, at first glance, this may seem unusual.
Baby onesies haven’t been directly affected by the pandemic. So why are they on the list?
For any parent, watching a toddler can seem like a 24 hour job. Whether they are in the room or not, thoughts about the baby constantly whiz through their minds.
Therefore, parents are much more likely to consider their little toddler when shopping online too.
Not only have baby onesies risen in demand, but like t-shirts, they are easy to print text based designs on. This is ordinary text that anyone can print onto a top, and they are currently highly demanded by the market. To learn more about these designs, check out this article.
9) Baby t-shirts
Baby t-shirts also present themselves as a profitable opportunity to take advantage of.
Parents, aunts and uncles already love to spoil babies with gifts. This is especially the case for customizable gifts, like baby t-shirts.
Besides, baby products will constantly stay high in demand despite the coronavirus pandemic. So long as we keep making babies, the need for baby products will always remain.
10) Dog bowls
Just like babies, people see their furry friends as their own child.
The pet supplies industry in the United States alone is estimated to be worth $86 billion, and 37% of pet owners say they’re buying more products online than they used to.
Although there are numerous pet supplies to source, there’s only a limited number of websites that allow you to place your design on. Teelaunch and Zazzle are one of a few which currently sells custom pet supplies.
From toys and treats to collars and grooming equipment, there’s more than enough opportunities to take advantage of.
The Bottom Line
While the coronavirus pandemic has to put a hold on many areas of our lives, it’s also opened doors to making even more money online.
From neck gaiters to latte mugs and even headphones, there are several trending products out there to profit from.
