If you’re looking for the products that can bring you quick profits, consider one of the following ideas!

Tech niche ideas

Technology never stops improving. All over the world, there are enthusiasts who work day and night to make our future brighter, cleaner, and better. If you love hi-tech stuff and keep an eye on the latest releases and announcements, here’s what you can benefit from!

Wi-Fi 6 products


Wi-Fi-6 is the technology that secures faster processing and higher wireless connection speed. Analysts explain that it allows a 3 times faster download speed than Wi-Fi 5 that we are using now. Of course, it’s great news for Web surfers all across the world!


As of the summer of 2019, there were not so many Wi-Fi 6 products on the market: mostly, these were high-class routers. However, lots of other devices, like laptops and smartphones, were announced, and tech-savvy users are eager to get them ASAP. What would you say to this market opportunity?

Wireless tech


Look at these crazy numbers of orders from AliExpress! It’s safe to say that various pieces of wireless technology are certainly a good pick for your store.

WhaTech reports that the wireless router industry is estimated to reach $3200.92 million by 2022. Business Insider, in turn, expects that the market of hearables, also known as smart headphones, will grow by 45% annually during the next 5 years. Wireless Audio Market Global Forecast predicts that the wireless audio market will reach the mark of $31.80 billion by 2023.

Sounds really impressive, right?


The demand for these items looks very promising, too!

Wearables and accessories


Fitness and health trackers become much more accessible to the general public. The technology is improving, and even the people in lower income countries can easily afford these health & sports devices. It allows the sellers reach the customer segments that they couldn’t achieve earlier!


The niche potential is truly incredible. As per the Wearable Devices Market Forecast, the market of wearable devices will grow by 25,76% every year in the next 5 years, and reach the mark of $24.640 billion by 2022.

Surely, trackers, as well as other kinds of wearables, are a lovely choice for your dropshipping store!

360-degree cameras & accessories


360-degree cameras are increasingly demanded for lots of different purposes. Video surveillance, mapping, VR videography and gaming, panoramic photography, robotics… All these and many other spheres require the use of 360-degree cameras and their accessories, which is why the market is thriving.


The value of the global 360-degree camera market will reach $2130 million by 2025, making it a great industry for you to consider.

VR devices


Since we’ve just mentioned VR, let’s talk about this tech niche, too!

VR and AR systems are not something ‘hype’, ‘high-tech’ or ‘inaccessible’ any more. Thanks to the technology advancements, they are available to all sorts of audiences. Even schools use them to create an engaging and entertaining educational process!


There is no wonder, then, that the global VR market volume is expected to reach $98,4 million by 2023. That opens up some exciting opportunities to the market players – who knows, maybe you’ll become one of them, too?…

Lifestyle niche ideas

Do you want to bring value to your customers? Think about the niches and products that are helpful in our daily life, and build your store around them!

Smart home devices


(Oh no, not tech stuff again! :D)

One of the most prominent kitchen trends of 2020 is an extensive use of smart devices for various cooking, cleaning, and organising processes.

But of course, not only kitchens can benefit from the exciting innovations brought to us from researchers all over the globe. Your customers can improve countless aspects of their daily household routines thanks to household devices – and they are really interested in it!


Even though the demand for these items seems to depend on the season, you can clearly see this niche has a highly promising potential.

Tourism gear


In 2020, adventure tourism will be more than just a popular type of leisure activity. Analysts say it will be one of the major trends shaping the whole travel industry. Certainly, you can’t overlook this curious market movement!


As more tourists are exploring unusual and physically demanding types of travelling, they are increasingly looking for the necessary equipment. Remember that your buyers’ health and safety depends on the quality of the items you’re selling, so be very picky in your products choice!

Indoor gardening tools


Home gardens are expected to be a big thing in 2020: plants will be all over the place! Finding their way indoors, they will require their owners’ attention and care – and of course, special treatment accessories.


Actually, you can launch a thriving business based on this idea!

One-piece swimwear


Swimwear can be fashionable or outdated, too! Just like any type of clothing, it gets re-imagined every new season. It gives you exceptional opportunities in terms of a profitable dropshipping niche choice.

Just think about it: you can fill your dropshipping store with fancy swimsuits of all cuts and colors! Whether you’re targeting vacation-goers or swimming training fans, you can offer plenty of options that suit all of them.


As you can see, there is a strong seasonal pattern here. What’s also curious, the peak rates are consistently high every year, which means this niche has an interesting long-term potential.

Water bottles


High-end water bottles are thought to be a status symbol of the 21st century. They solve multiple users’ issues at once: let them stay hydrated throughout the day, save the money they would have spent on other beverages, show their responsible attitude to sustainability, and many more.


There is no wonder these items are on the rise!

Fashion niche ideas

If you’re looking for a niche that easily triggers impulse purchases, fashion items are probably your best bet! They cause an emotional reaction and motivate the viewers to hit the ‘Buy Now’ button without a second thought.

Let’s see which exact fashion items and accessories will see the highest demand in the upcoming season!

Rattan bags


The runways of Spring/Summer 2020 New York Fashion Week were filled with numerous versions of rattan bags. None other than Michael Kors was the person behind this newly emerging trend, which is why we’re expecting rattan bags to become the must-have of 2020.


Interestingly, a wider audience thinks the same!

Hair clips and barrettes


Half-up hairstyles were massively featured on runways, too! And if your buyers want to repeat this ‘romantic hair’ look, they will need to secure their hair with a catchy clip, a cute pin, or a lovely barrette. Thankfully, you have enough well-demanded AliExpress offers to meet their needs!


What’s especially great about this product type is that it’s certainly going to stay demanded regardless of cutting-edge fashion trends! Hype comes and goes, but the number of AliExpress orders clearly shows that these hair styling products has always been sought after.

Metallic clothing


Paris Fashion Week’s obsession with metallic textiles just can’t go unnoticed. What would you say to the opportunity to spice up your product offer with these items?


Given the current interest in shiny and sparkly materials, your business prospects look quite bright, too!

Women shorts


You might think that there is nothing really special about shorts. After all, it’s nothing but a regular type of clothing that is worn on numerous occasions. However, 2020 is promised to be ‘all about shorts’, especially micro shorts.


So, if you’re looking for ways to drive new audiences to your apparel store, consider adding this product type to your offer!

Lace clothing


Spring 2020 Paris Fashion Week saw lots of elegant clothes with lace and exquisite embroidery. Even though these clothing decoration methods aren’t really innovative or groundbreaking, they just look good – and that’s all you need to know to create a compelling product range.


Media’s attention was widely attracted to lace-decorated clothing in 2016, and since then, the public interest to it has stayed quite stable.

Evergreen niche ideas for dropshipping

Researching the hottest 2019/2020 technology, lifestyle, and fashion trends, we were still keeping in mind these niches’ lifespan. Trends come and go, but your store will be operating for a long time!

That’s why even when we’re talking about hot and hype products and niches, we still try collecting some stats on these niches’ expected performance over the course of years.

But what about the dropshipping niches that will stay popular forever? Are there any items or topics that will be popular no matter what?

The answer is yes!

Here is just a tiny selection of ‘evergreen’ niches you can benefit from.

Kids’ clothes, toys, and accessories


Just take a look at the number of orders these AliExpress items have! Whatever happens, these products see a steady demand, and nothing can change it.

All over the world, people keep creating families and providing the best possible care to their little ones. We have already covered this niche in one of our previous research articles, so you’re welcome to check it out!

Pets’ accessories


Pets’ well-being and entertainment is the issue of paramount importance to their owners. For these people, online shopping is a more affordable alternative to buying these items in brick-and-mortar stores. However, the trick here is to promote and position your dropshipping store in a proper way. If you want to learn more about it, just go to this article.

Women apparel


For thousands of women all over the globe, it’s challenging to find time and money for a relaxing and satisfying offline shopping. Therefore, if you’re working in this niche, you have a huge customer segment to target. Plus, you can enjoy an unbeatable opportunity to keep your buyers interested thanks to hype and trendy product updates! For more info, please read this guide on dropshipping apparel.



Low-cost fitness is a massive industry you can greatly benefit from. Think about offering cheap yet highly rated sportswear that everyone can easily afford. This way, you’ll be targeting two segments at once. It’s both the regular gym-goers who don’t want to spend extra on their fitness clothes, and the people who work out in the comfort of their own homes.

Eco-friendly lifestyle items


As we already mentioned it before, the use of eco-friendly, sustainable products is a full-scale fashion statement these days! But beyond that, it’s a great habit that is gradually becoming widespread on the global scale. Noticing that recycling, waste reducing and items recycling actually makes a difference for the environment, people get much more interested in adopting this lifestyle.

This is absolutely awesome. Thank you for this list. It makes stepping into the ecommerce world that much more easier.

MarkCM December 13, 2017 8:20:20

SO when it’s the Year of the Chicken … everyone will run out and adopt or buy a pet chicken, right? LOL

Tarry December 13, 2017 9:09:48

I’m wondering the same thing. I didn’t quite get the logic of that part..maybe it’s just me

Troy January 24, 2018 18:09:15

Do you see many people have or consider having chickens as pets? No. But you see a lot of people considering having dogs as pets. You cant apply the same logic because it’s not the same thing. People are superstitious so getting a dog on the dog year is good luck.

Bea February 13, 2018 4:04:14

Few people even know what year it is in the Chinese calendar, and fewer still, outside of very specific areas, would think it relevant for decision making.

MarkCM June 1, 2018 10:46:08

You need to do a bit of work on your sense of humour, Troy. I was just joking. … LOL 🙂

Britt June 28, 2018 22:10:01

Of course not 🙄. Dogs are already popular pets, and even certain breeds can become niches. Since it’s the year of the Dog though, some people will capitalize on that. It’s reachable – Chickens aren’t reachable. Only a certain particular person would raise chickens; people view dogs as a pet that anyone can get. There are far more dog lovers than chicken lovers – Hince why people will take advantage of the trend. Don’t be stupid.

bedan December 13, 2017 8:20:48

Hey thanks for this enlightening, eye opening article. The timeliness and importance of such info can not be over-emphasized…Keep it up.

Bonjour Bedan November 28, 2019 16:06:34

Bonjour Bedan,

Avez-vous une boutique en ligne, je compte en ouvrir une, que pensez-vous d’alisdroshipping en qualité, est-ce pour durée ou pas, la livraison est-elle sérieuse.
Merci pour votre réponse.

bill December 13, 2017 8:40:25

are these the prices for the buyer or the seller

Paul December 13, 2017 13:22:19

Great! Now 170 people will start a niche in dog toys on com level…will all do great SEO and pum money in FB and Adwords advertising……..and you are done and finished with your business in no -time due to killing competition.

Alex Drastico December 21, 2017 4:03:09

All of the above mentioned niches already have a huge competition. There is no niche on earth where you are the only seller, unless you are a monopolist.

Pido December 30, 2017 9:56:01

Awesome ,am sure the trend will continue,think about doll houses as well

Dylan January 4, 2018 15:56:15

Hi, thanks for this info!

Is the cardholder niche also profitable?

josh January 11, 2018 17:45:21

Every niche rises at november. These niches only are rising because of christmas

alex disouza January 29, 2018 10:14:38

Great ideas Olga!

Norma March 19, 2018 13:29:43

Brianna March 28, 2018 17:33:36

What do you think about the baby niche. Too tough to get into or narrow down for marketing?

Phil May 8, 2018 20:47:48

Hello Olga, we are now in May, do you recommend new niches today ? Can you give us an advice ? Thanks so much. Phil.

Laxmish June 9, 2018 16:18:21

Kolawole July 1, 2018 13:58:24

This is one of the best business inspirational article I’ve ever read. Thanks soo much for this
Piece.. Keep it coming

Ahmad August 27, 2018 21:17:46

Thanks Olga, very useful and helpful information, but the question here, if there is a high demand on those niches, it will be a big challenge to me if I’m new to this business, is there any chances to compete with others with this list above?
If I use the tool that analyse the niche to choose from the above list then its not good to go with it due high demand and high average order which is not recommend as you advised in other article as the focus should be on niches from 300-500 orders and avoid orders exceeding 10000!
Can you elaborate further about this point please ?
Or I can start with any of 12 niches without using the free tool that I will consider ?

Yawar September 20, 2018 19:38:53

hi Olga L ,

Mullai January 21, 2019 9:24:17

Hi Olga! thanks for the info on trending products.

Balogun Omotayo April 29, 2019 11:57:44

Nice one Olga, what an eye opener. and a good guide. Thanks

Jav Censored June 1, 2019 9:02:53

That’s so cool! I don’t suppose I’ve read anything such as this before. So pleasant to obtain somebody with some primary thoughts on this matter. Really thank you for beginning this up.

Karen B. Spitzer June 17, 2019 16:43:22

I know there’s a turn towards vlogging but I love to write and read other people’s blogs. Yours is no exception.

The reason the fidgets Spinners took off is the woman who originally held the patent on it let it expire and everyone jumped on it. So it became a hot trend for a while and a lot of money was made. It cost next to nothing to make and some of them sold upwards of $25. I know a lot of people also got stuck with them after the rush was over. That’s why I don’t like products like that. I’d rather get into something that’s evergreen.

Olufunke Ogunbiyi June 22, 2019 16:32:22

Thank you so much for the list. It serves as an eye opener.

Sandra Židan June 23, 2019 9:52:32

Thanks! Great article!

Vee July 12, 2019 19:02:08

Hello im very interested in starting my own drop shipping business, but im new to all of this and have no idea on how and where to start.
Can anyone give me some advice on which drop shipping company to go with and whats the best place to start my website on?
Thanks in advance!

Olga L. July 15, 2019 11:24:35

Hi, thank you for your question!
The best platform to start your website on is WordPress – it’s free and it has lots of advantages for a newcomer. You can read more about it here:
And then, with the help of AliDropship plugin, you can turn this website into a fully functional dropshipping store! Please, watch this video to learn more:

Shades August 16, 2019 8:26:06

I’ve been reading and watching my eyes still can’t narrow down my search or nterest to just one niche.Secondly do I have register my company or business name first with the regulatory bodies?

Olga L. August 20, 2019 10:41:01

Hi, thank you for your feedback!

Please, look through this article on the most profitable dropshipping niches We hope you will find an interesting idea for you there!

Also, please, check what are the online business laws in your country. Lots of our clients don’t register their dropshipping businesses right after they launch them, but, when they achieve a large turnover, many of them register as sole proprietors or small business owners.

Sue November 22, 2019 1:45:27
