What to DropShip this Summer

Temperatures are rising, and summer is right around the corner. If you’re looking for the hottest product trends to jump on as we swing into one of the year’s biggest shopping seasons, we’ve got your back.

Using in-depth market research, the DropShipping experts at Armaan Resales have put together a comprehensive list of products to help you build the ultimate list of products for your eCommerce store.

1. Mobile Phone Accessories

We’re a high-tech society, and even when the weather is warm, consumers still like spending on their mobile and tech devices. Items like screen protectors, cases and wireless charging stations are inexpensive for buyers but offer great margins depending on your wholesale price.

Additionally, there’s exceptional demand in the market for mobile phone accessories, and they’re fast-moving – so keep an eye on your stock levels.

2. Smart Watches and Wearable Tech

Wearable devices aren’t just for the fitness junkies. They provide additional functions like watches, alarm clocks and heart rate monitors. Because of this, the demand for them has significantly increased over the last decade. While big brands are relatively expensive, there are less expensive brands that make them a viable purchase for most customers.

3.  Social Media Blogging Accessories

It seems that everyone wants to be a social media influencer these days, and the accessories around this career are highly in demand. From microphones and lighting to mobile phone tripods, there’s a whole host of products available to choose from.

4. Gaming and Streaming Accessories

Like social media influencers, the number of video game streamers is at an all-time high. Products catering to this career path provide decent margins (depending on supplier) and include:

  • Microphones
  • Headphones
  • Gaming mice
  • Keyboards
  • Mousepads
  • Lighting

Additionally, many of these streamers like to offer merchandise to their followers. If you’re a DropShipper that dips their toes in personalised merchandise, this is an ideal product path to follow that can be highly lucrative.

5. Automotive Products and Accessories

It’s no secret that consumers love their cars. From parts for maintenance to specialised accessories, the demand for automotive products grows steadily year on year. These types of products include:

  • Cameras (dash and rear)
  • Seat covers, floor mats and steering wheel covers
  • Cleaning products and accessories
  • Mobile phone holders
  • Organisers
  • Pet accessories for the car

6. Sporting Goods and Fitness

Summer means warmer weather and an uptick in people enjoying the great outdoors. Whether trail running or doing yoga in the park, there are tons of products on-demand to help people achieve their fitness goals and enjoy their favourite sports. Here are a few of the hottest trending products to add to your listings:

  • Yoga mats, straps, blocks and wheels
  • Resistance bands
  • Cycling accessories
  • Sports water bottles
  • Mobile phone carriers for runners

How to do Your Own Market Research

This is only a small selection of the most popular products to list this summer. As a DropShipper, it’s important to do your own market research to determine what will resonate with your target audience and sell well on the markets.

Market research isn’t as difficult as it seems. One of the easiest ways to do market research is with Google Trends. Google Trends provides search traffic data using parameters that you set, including:

  • Location
  • Time range
  • Categories
  • Type of search (image, news, Google shopping, etc)

Using this data, you can see how popular a search term is and infer whether that product is currently in demand. Marketplaces themselves offer a lot of insight too. This is vitally important to perform throughout the year – allowing you to adjust product listings to the ever-changing whims of consumers.
