Coronavirus LIVE Booming Trends with Related Products for Dropshipping

Staying at home and trying to sell products online is probably the best thing to do right now. The range of products that are expected to trend due to the recent worldwide pandemic, the Coronavirus outbreak, is HUGE. This article is going to focus on more than just the products that only sell during the few panic days like toilet paper or water bottles.

This article shows a LIVE feed of Google Trends analysis of specific trends that I believe are here to stay for long. It then attaches to the trends the most relevant products you can source and sell online building your online business ethically during these times.

When you are running an online eCommerce business your success depends on your ability to understand and analyze trends in retail markets. These trends are correlated with the general public opinion and the general trends of communities around the world. Once you understand the trend, you can now source relevant products that will “ride” on its uprising wave of demand. Your goal is to dropship products that will sell like crazy.

How to Start an Ethical eCommerce Business These Days

If you understand digital marketing and dropshipping, you can start an ethical online eCommerce business even during the world Coronavirus crisis. The products that are most trending during the outbreak of the Corovavirus (Covid-19) are essential supplies that are sold on big retailers such as Walmart, Tesco, Costco etc. We’re talking about toilet paper, dry food, snacks, hand sanitizes and more, just take a look at this list, it’s mad. One of the bad implications of the panic purchases is price gauging. This is a wrong, unethical and dangerous practice that if you participate in you might get banned.

Wise dropshippers analyze the needs and feelings that are going to trend for a long time, even all year long, and find great products that will show steady growth in demand. This article is focused on these products. I hope you find the information in it useful, please consider sharing it with someone that could benefit from reading it as well.

One last thing before we dive deeper into the trends and products, I owe you a full disclosure: I am a co-founder at DSM Tool which I use to add these and million other trending products to my store. You know what, here you can see it for yourself

Which Products Will Trend as a Result of the Coronavirus Outbreak?

If you plan to continue dropshipping also after the Coronavirus outbreak is over, you should consider sourcing products from niches related to people’s general HEALTH. Health might be the number one concern of the entire world in the upcoming months, maybe years. Therefore, sourcing products that make people more healthy is what I believe will result in great sales.

All of the products in this article were found in AliExpress, this was done to make it simple for you to compare and analyze the products. I believe you should source products for your dropshipping store from multiple suppliers’ websites.

Before you dive deep into analyzing the products, you should take in a count that this article use, for example, specific products I found for this demonstration. That is because my goal is to inspire you to understand how to relate products to trends. 

Of course, you can just add these specific products to your store as is. But what I am really after is inspiring you so you to further explore similar, related, cheaper and unique products that are all related to the trends discussed in this article. Let’s get started!

Dropship Products That Sanitize the Environment

Live feed from Google Analytics for the keyword “Sanitize”

Absurdly, washing your hands is a far more effective and far less used method to reduce the chances to catch the virus. But if I understand it, and you understand it, that means we should expect washing hands to be a 2020 trend in many houses around the world.

Below are some interesting products related to a clean sanitized house.

Automatic Sanitaion with Soap Dispensers

Automatic soap dispensers count as more healthy as they do not require a human to press the pump to take soap out of it. No human touch is literally one of the requirements to make sure we don’t contain each other with a virus.

Soap dispensers sales are in general expected to rise, but the automatic dispensers provide an added value to them that makes it worth dropshipping.

Sanitation: The Version For the Kids’ Bathroom

The beauty of dropshipping is that the only limit to what you could sell that would be related to the trends in 2020 following the Coronavirus outbreak is your imagination. Soap dispensers are trending? Go find a sub-niche of related products, for example, most soap dispensers are being used in bathrooms… But children’s bathrooms might contain dispensers that are designed for kids.

Highest Sanitation Level: Alcoholic Hand-Rub Dispenser

If we’re already disinfecting our hands, using an Alcohol might be an effective way to do that. You can see hand-rub dispensers in places like hospitals or medical clinics all the time. This is much better-looking home-version of it which the buyers have to fill with liquid by themselves.

Dropship Products That Cleans The Air (Purifiers)

Live feed from Google Analytics for the keyword “Purifier”

It is already broadly known that the virus is not contaminating through the air, you need to be in touch with the person who has it to get it (or touch something that was touched by them beforehand, and then touch your face). I estimate that while you and I know it, the hysteria around getting face masks will make people think that they also need to purify the air.

You can’t control what people believe in, this is an upcoming trend. I suggest you think like a business and ride the wave, as long as you don’t do price gauging and you try to bring value by sourcing unique, interesting products at a reasonable price – I am a big supporter of riding the wave of success with these trends.

Purify Air Directly From the Socket

Probably the smallest air purifier out there. The cheapest way for those who want to try an ar purifier for the first time or that want to use it in a small space. Being so small, or being so cheap, can be what differentiate this air purifier from other products in the same category making it an interesting product for dropshipping.

Purify the Room While Keeping it Classic.

If there is one thing we should expect from this outbreak is that people would look for their lives to be further taken care of. In some cases it is recommended to humidify the air at home, at work and anywhere people stay. In that case, why not doing it in style?

The beautiful style and the health benefits is the reason to dropship beautiful looking humidifiers.

Fans That Can be Used for Air Purifying

When choosing a fan, people might consider the advantage of the option to add a mist which can humidify or purify the air in the room. This is why fans like this one would not only be a stylish choice but also a healthy one.

Such advantages are what makes a product more interesting for dropshipping.

When Purifying the Air Don’t Forget the Car

Since we expect air purifiers to trend, we dropshippers should prepare to sell air purification products for any environment.

Why? To some people, it is more important to purify the air at home, but what about people that spend most of their time in the car, Taxi drivers for example? That is, of course, one example out of many potential buyer audiences.

Dropship Products that Sterilize

Live feed from Google Analytics for the keyword “Stetilize”

When choosing products to sell in your dropshipping store in 2020 you should consider the new priorities of people around the world. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the concept of sterilization is going to gain more and more popularity

Dropship products that will help people build safer environments for themselves, families, employees and customers.

Many products can be used for sterilization, I chose to focus on one niche of products: UV lamp-based sterilizers.

Sterilizing the Most-Touched Device –  Your Phone.

The most used device in our house (and in our life) is our mobile phone. I personally clean mine with alcoholic spray daily. This device can sterilize any phone quickly and might address potential buyers like… well… me…

Part of a stetilized home is a sterilized bathroom. This is where the UV light toothbrush sterilizers come into the picture being a wonderful product to dropship

Sterilize Anything, Anywhere, With the Wand

Isn’t it magical in a sense that you can use a wand to sterilize the environment? Reminds me more of a Harry Potter spell.

I can’t vouch for the reliability of the concept of UV sterilization. Yet, whether I will be skeptical about it or not, I believe such products are going to trend, therefore I might try to dropship it.

You Can Go Pretty Serious About UV Sterilization

This product is an example of a very niche product, people who buy a room UV light sterilizer are not likely to also purchase such a big machine. Yet, any kind of UV sterilization might be trending now following the outbreak. Maybe this one as well. What do you think?

Dropship Products The Promotes Wellness


Live feed from Google Analytics for the keyword “Vitamins”

By drop shipping, you can promote products to people who care about their general immune system strength. From my understanding of the extent that viruses go to, they interact with the DNA of the cells they attack. Therefore, strengthening our immune system by investing in our wellness is a trend I predict to see keep growing during 2020.

If you are a dropshipper, this is a good trend to know. That’s because wellness comes with… well… wellness products. And there are LOTS of them.

Fresh Juice is One of The Best Ways to Absorb Vitamins

We’ve been told since childhood that to Absorb most of the vitamins from a fruit or a vegetable we need to eat it fresh or drink it’s juice fresh. Juicers are the product that helps people get those vitamins

Dropshipping products such as juicers is not that simple, these are big complex machines usually. That is why you should dropship either blenders or the mobile version of the blenders, which are referred to as Juicers as well due to them being targeted to people who use them to make shakes. (Protein shakes, fruit and vitamins shake, etc.)

Iionizing Water On the Go

Since we’re already talking about the advantage of dropshipping on-the-go products, we should as well mention the water ionizers which are used to create hydrogen-rich water. I am not familiar personally with this concept so I have no doubt of its benefits but I estimate it could be sold under the ongoing trend quite well

For Warm Drinks There are Just as Many Opportunities

Tea and other warm drinks are part of the wellness movement, and part of our lives. That is what makes Thermoses such a great product for dropshipping. If you think about it in terms of the current outbreak, just think how important it is going to be for people to get even slightly sick.

I am not saying that you need to take advantage of that, I am saying that it’s a legitimate thing for people to wish for and a good opportunity for businesses to help. As a dropshipper you can find a range of interesting products all around thermoses. Look at this bottle, what are the characteristics of its potential buyers in your opinion? Are they a couple? Dreamers? Party people that love the black and white theme?

Keep Your Shoes Dry and Healthy

When someone comes back from the outside with wet shoes then drying them faster can help both to use them again earlier and to sanitize them by making sure no germs has the opportunity to grow in them while it is wet.

Such problem-solving is something worth dropshipping. I expect people to care more about their general health from now on and such products might sell well.

Cost: on AliExpress I found it starting from $35.44, but this is a fancy dryer. You can find cheaper ones easily

Dropship Products That are Handy at Emergency


Live feed from Google Analytics for the keyword “Emergency Supplies”

Putting entire countries in quarantine made massive panic buying in supermarkets. The pictures of long lines outside supermarkets will stay long in the memories of everyone. When I learned behavioral economics we learned that the public perception of the chance to get involved in an accident increases when it’s being covered by the media.

The demand is going to grow, and as an eCommerce business owner, you want your business to survive these hard times as well. That is why I recommend considering adding these products to your store.

Battery Based Generator as Part of People’s Survival Kits

People keep at home different products for an emergency, emergency light is a great example. A generator is another example. But not everyone is comfortable with operating a gasoline-based generator. For them, this is the perfect solution.

Such a block can stand dozens of mobile phone charges, which is very relevant in today’s survival modes.

The Water Purifier in Survival Mode

Electricity is one thing people need under survival mode, water is another. I found so many water purifying products, in many cases, they address outdoor enthusiasts which makes sense. Will they now also address the people who think the end of the world is coming? I don’t know. What do you think?

Last But Not Least, the Digital Thermometer

I think there is no need to even explain this one. Digital thermometers are directly related to the recent outbreak because it is a device that is being used to detect one of the disease symptoms.

It is probably already booming and going to continue to sell well during 2020

Summary

What is most important to remember regarding dropshipping products in 2020 following the worldwide Coronavirus outbreak is that the economy is going to get hit hard. This means unemployment is going to rise, companies are going to lose their value and not achieve their financial goals – meaning they might face difficulties raising capital in the stock markets, and won’t have the cash to pay their employees.

Right now is a good time to consider creating an income channel using eCommerce. It is one of the industries that is still expected to grow, especially following worldwide quarantine that makes people to order more online.

I hope these products inspire you to further research and find awesome products to sell online, my heart goes to the victims of the pandemic I encourage you as eCommerce entrepreneurs to consider doing good and help around to those in need, consider sharing this article with someone you think could benefit from starting an eCommerce business this year. I hope these recommendations will help you succeed
