Dropshipping Trends in 2020 Are Same as Retail Trends

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 source relevant trending products that will “ride” on its uprising wave of demand. Your goal is to dropship products that will sell like crazy.

Dropshipping trends are not something unique to the people who use the dropshipping model for their business. Even big retailers are following their products trend to increase their potential sales. For example, products that are trending on Amazon go into the Movers and Shaktes list, these products are very likely to appear on the first page results for Amazon’s buyers.

Dropshipping During Coronavirus

If you understand digital marketing and dropshipping, you can start an ethical online eCommerce business even during the world Coronavirus crisis. You can do it by using dropshipping suppliers that will fulfill your orders during Coronavirus. and by selling their most trending products.

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 sanitizers, and more, just take a look at this list, it’s mad. One of the bad implications of 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.

Caution!

Check the policies of your selling platform to know which products you can sell online. For example, some of the coronavirus-related products are eBay-banned items.

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 a 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 into account 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

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 Sanitation 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 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 a much better-looking home-version of it which the buyers have to fill with liquid by themselves.

Ionizing 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 have 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

Product search analysis of 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
