You may remember we mentioned beard oil on our top 2017 viral products list, and it’s been enjoying its top spot since!

Anti-snoring products are a sought-after dropshipping product for wellness stores, and their popularity has been growing steadily. The advantage of adding this type of product to your store is that they are not seasonal products; people sleep (snore) all year round! Anti-snoring products can include chin straps, mouth guards, nose plugs for those that snore, and earplugs for those living with a person who snores.
Last, but by no means least, we have trendsetter wireless headphones. They are steadily growing in popularity year on year, but as you can see below, their real shining moments are Black Friday and Cyber Monday!

If you want a best seller that has been popular over time, then look no further than the coffee cup. They have been consistently popular over the years, but if you want to make a splash, you should be designing your own. Or jump on the customization trend and let your shoppers create their own.
Silicone Baking Molds
Another silicone product, baking molds, is making a comeback! From shaping designer cakes to cute muffins, they are an affordable product that has taken over the baking niche. You just have to look at some of the sub-categories on AliExpress to see the thousands of orders placed on such simple, affordable products.
Black necklaces are not one of those jewelry trending products that popped up overnight. Instead, they have enjoyed a steady climb to becoming a popular product to sell in 2018.

Matcha is a green tea variety that has not only grown in popularity but offers sellers good profit margins. Think of it as the Ferrari of green teas, which targets those shoppers looking for premium tea flavors and extra green tea benefits.
Another favorite AliExpress product is the highly-searched stove cover, designed specifically to keep gas burners clean. It’s not just their popularity that makes them a good seller; their price point makes them affordable and their weight makes them easy to ship.

We know that kitchen products are a popular Ecommerce niche, with lots of best-selling products to branch into. Vegetable cutters are one such trending product and have seen great growth.

A long-time favorite product, green tea consistently makes the best-selling products list. Tea has become so popular that even Shopify has a whole guide dedicated to starting an online tea company. Green tea is said to be the most lucrative in the global tea market, with the highest growth rate. This tea trend has given birth to a lot of Ecommerce businesses and exciting new green tea flavors.

No trending products list would be complete without a mention of shapewear. This apparel/health product’s popularity has been growing steadily. It is so popular that there are Ecommerce stores that start their business selling nothing but shapewear.
LED mirrors are fast becoming a must-have product for beauty and grooming enthusiasts. Although the wall-mounted versions may not be something you would add to your beauty and makeup store, the hand-held versions could make a popular add-on for your store.
Phone cases are another best-selling product that has been growing in a big way since 2009. That’s because they are an inexpensive product that almost everyone (with a phone) needs. Silicone phone cases are hugely popular (most new covers are made with silicone), as are the new kids on the block: marble phone cases. But if you want to break into this competitive market, the trick is to take these trends and design something unique to your brand.
LED lighting is so hot right now. From bulbs and photography lightboxes to mirrors, it seems LED is on everything these days. Not only are they lighter on electricity, but they are a lot less breakable. It is very likely that in a few years LED will replace most of the current lighting solutions. The rise of smart lighting is also thanks to LED lights and technology.
With the growth of the photography industry comes the growth of trending photography products. One such product is the 360° camera. These products are still relatively new but were designed with VR capabilities in mind. For now, they allow photographers and videographers to shoot 360-degree photos and video, which makes for awesome travel photos.
