For a dropshipping business owner, the ultimate goal is to get as much profit as possible. This is a feat only achievable if you are selling the right products in your store. You could probably make sales out of the general products but there is no guarantee your business won’t fall into the medium category, where it isn’t exactly failing, but your sales don’t improve too much either.
Niche products are the best way to make profitable dropshipping. They don’t fall into the category of things anyone could buy from any store and yet, there are certain groups of people who are willing to pay a huge price for these products. However, that’s only if the niche is popular. Some niches might be so obscure that ultimately, no one is interested in the things you are selling on your website. So, to make sure your dropship business stays afloat, let’s take a look at some niches that are actually profitable in 2020.

Baby clothes continue to be popular over the years. However, they also cost a scary amount. It is kind of funny, considering you would think clothes made for small people that barely take up any space shouldn’t be so expensive. But it stands to reason that they tend to be made with the most comfortable, quality material. Regardless, babies are born every year and so is the increase in demand for clothes and other material for them.
This is another less paid attention to but obviously profitable niche. Not everyone in this world has pets but a large amount of people do and these people treat their pets like their children- as they should! The best thing about this niche is that you don't have to watch out for an in demand as the demand has always been through the roof.
From regular pet food to items that would help owners take care of their pets, such as a special kind of bowl that makes it easier for cats to drink water - these are all in high demand, year round. Owners love spoiling their pets and seem to almost compulsively buy any products that they think their pets would like. So, there is no confusion on whether this niche is profitable.
We live in a world where we don’t really need a watch. Most people are able to afford smartphones or other awesome gadgets and yet, something like an analog watch is almost more expensive than those electronic items. Still, the love for watches doesn’t seem to be wavering by any means.
That’s not the problem within this niche, though. The thing is, most watch brands offer extremely expensive products that regular people aren’t able to afford. And while you can certainly keep branded watches in your stores, your sales would likely be lukewarm, though profitable.
Instead, you can find a middle ground for your customers. Because the concept of minimalism has been on the rise and like all things, watches with minimalistic redressal are also in demand. A minimalistic item would also cost less for both you and your customer, so this is an alternative you could offer your customer.
There are way more people invested in the fitness trend than we think. Or rather, it’s accurate to say a lot of people try to get actively into fitness, even if they ultimately end up forsaking it. So, every year, we have the regular, sporty people who love buying sports bags, sports equipment, etc. Then, we have people who have promised themselves they are seriously going to workout this year. As a result, they end up buying sports gears and clothes, and then, after the first 3 to 4 training sessions, they never touch any of them again.
People care about the brightness of their room. As a result, as better light sources are produced, the fixtures in your house are changed. Right now, the focus is particularly on LED lights. These are bright and yet, they don’t emit gases or have any health hazards associated with them. It is also an energy saving product and if you care about the environment- which a lot more people are starting to, you probably want to do your part in reducing your carbon footprints this way.
Well, technology is never not in demand. Bluetooth gadgets are no different. People like hands-free convenience. People like being able to connect one gadget to another seamlessly and not have hundreds of wires in between them. It’s a niche that will continue to rise.
You know one of those areas in your house you want to make as comfortable as possible and you aren’t even consciously aware of it? Well, your bathroom is among those. People buy things like faucets and toothbrush holders to make the time spent in the bathroom as relaxing as possible.
Concerns regarding the future of our environment have been on the rise. Everyone’s starting to realize the current sources of energy we’re burning through are in no way inexhaustible. So, people have been consciously buying products with renewable energy as its main source of power.
For you, that means more solar fuelled items in your store.
When have beauty products ever been out of fashion? It’s an industry that’s always on the rise and you can hardly go wrong while choosing makeup items. These are also items you can be certain will sell every single time.
Again, this is a result of the current downward trajectory the environment is taking. People are buying products like reusable bags, eco-friendly toilet paper, etc, to lessen their contribution to pollution as much as possible. Keeping those items in your store would indirectly help you contribute to a good cause.
Well, what do you think about these 10 dropshipping niches you can dabble in? Do more research on them and find the one that would suit the theme of your store the most.
