Last updated on June 22nd, 2018 at 12:27 pm

Every year millions of new products being added to Amazon, the largest online retailer by a large margin. But the fact is that very few of those become best-sellers. Before we dive into our list of trending products 2018 that we believe will flourish and domtinate Amazon’s listings this year, let’s take a closer look at some of the factors that help to predict the potential success of a new product.

If you are experienced seller on Amazon, most likely you are familiar with the manufacturing cycle of a product and its logistics ecosystem. However, if you are not sure what to sell on Amazon and searching for a new trendy and profitable product that has a lot of potential, it’s crucial to understand that your position in product’s manufacturing lifecycle is one of the key elements to success and potential profit margins. Spotting potentially top selling items can get you there.

Without going too deep into economics and marketing theories, let’s draw a simple chart illustrating how vendor type is correlated with competition, market advantage and profit. It creates more context for trending products 2018.

competition-market-advantage

It’s not rocket science, but it suggests that if you are a small retailer, following creative innovators will increase your chances to find a new profitable product. It will help you to stay ahead of your competitors and sell more products on Amazon or any other marketplace.

Depending on whether you are a small retailer, a manufacturer (innovator) or selling white-label products, our list provides some of the most trending products, that we observed over the time while covering our daily news section. Although some of these consumer goods are not available on the market yet and due to be released end of this year, successful crowdfunding campaigns suggest that there is a huge demand for such products.

The 2017’s holiday season is only three months away and we can expect that some of these products will top Amazon’s best-seller listings by 2018.

10 Trending products 2018 to sell on Amazon:

Touchscreen gloves
Smart backpacks
Laser engravers
Ear wax removal kits
Portable mini 3D printers
Fidget toys
Seal & Pour packages
Solar USB Chargers
VR gadgets
Plastic folding furniture

1. Touchscreen gloves

Although touchscreen gloves have been around for awhile, there is a huge niche market for this product. A quick search on Amazon for touchscreen gloves, reveals how immature this product is. Surprisingly, almost all items are available only in dark grey or black colors. Clearly, there is a lack of visually appealing, colorful and stylish gloves. So if you are still wondering what to sell on Amazon this holiday season and in 2018, touchscreen gloves seem to be a good choice.

A good example is Napo Gloves, a new startup from Warsaw, Poland, is aiming to fill this niche. The company’s new product combines luxury fashion with technology dedicated to touchscreen devices such as tablets, smartphones, ATMs and car navigation systems.

2. Smart backpacks

Smart backpacks allow travelers to charge their tablets, game consoles, smartphones and other gadgets on the go. Backpacks equipped with powerful batteries and USB connections are certainly on the rise. Unlike small power banks, that might be not so comfortable to carry it along, a backpack is not limited to a single purpose. This niche market is gradually becoming saturated. But a quick search on Amazon shows that despite the fact that there are many products listed under this category, most of them are quite popular.

3. Laser engravers

Personalization and customization of products is in high demand. Laser engravers are primarily used in industrial production. But a new technology allows to make them small, portable and user-friendly. Cubiio is a good example of this trend. Although Cubiio can only engrave on wood, paperboard, cardboard, fabric, felt or leather, the new gadget successfully raised $798,495 of its initial $25,000 goal. A perfect product for DIY enthusiasts.

5. Portable mini 3D printers

Scoot Galloway, marketing professor at NYU Stern School of business, made a strong statement saying that 3d printing is dead. And he was right in a sense. However, over the last 12 months, we have witnessed a new trend. Small, portable and highly customizable personal 3D printers became a new trend.  Here are few examples of how new start-ups are taking advantage of this emerging trend.
