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 that we believe will flourish and dominate Amazon’s listings in 2019, 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’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 to sell on Amazon:
