ECommerce is a buzzing word at the moment, so many people are switching to shopping online that entrepreneurs in their hundreds are selling online. It has never been more simple to start an online shop via a platform and start selling it online. But what niches are those to watch?
So, let me share with you the top trending eCommerce niches that are booming in 2021.
1. Vegan Products
Veganism is still a rising trend. Whether it is for health consciousness, to save the planet, or that people are just evolving from eating animals. There are thousands of people cutting meat out of their diets. Alongside this, people want ethical products too.
They don’t want to use a lipstick that was tested on a rabbit or a face cream that was used on a dog first.
We are moving towards a very animal-friendly civilization and that trend is happening in some form or another across the globe.
Selling vegan products, cosmetics, and ethically sourced produce is a sure-fire way of getting business in 2021.
2. Pet Products
With the vegan trend comes a lot of love for our pets. People are spending a great deal of money online for their four-legged friends. Not to mention, the issues that the pandemic has brought.
Many people working from home have spent 100% more time with their dogs. This has created an excellent bond but has often led to the dogs becoming very anxious when their owners go out.

Separation anxiety in dogs is challenging and laborious to train out of a dog (though it can be done).
Many owners have decided to opt for medicating their pets when they go out to dull the effects of separation anxiety. CBD oil for pets has become a massive market in eCommerce.
3. Men’s Beard Products
We would hazard a guess that nearly every single man in the world has started to grow a beard at some point during the pandemic. It stands to logic that most of them have kept them.
Now that we are moving into warmer weather, pubs will be re-opening soon and people will be meeting up. Especially after these stringent lockdowns which many of us had to endure during the pandemic.
Those men are going to need some way of taming their chin curls.
Beard products, especially beard oil are on the rise as an excellently profitable eCommerce product.
4. Subscription Boxes
Now that people are used to shopping online, they also want a little surprise in their lives. With the help of Subscription boxes, you can do this!
People don’t know exactly what they are getting but they know they will enjoy opening it. Like a little treat once a month :)
Subscription boxes go from beer to goodies, make-up to toys.
You name it; there is probably a subscription box that covers it or will do it soon.
5. Garden Accessories
This spring people will be buying what they need to make their garden a chunk of paradise. Selling gardening accessories online from seeds to furniture will be a big buzz in 2021.
There are plenty of ways that you can begin to sell online. Ensure you have a clear idea of what you are doing and how you will do it.
Research before you jump in and have a broad understanding of the market you are entering, and push your eCommerce daily using advertising and content creation.
