Our most popular blog of 2015 was something l wrote around this time last year about product trends on eBay and Amazon, which included the surge in popularity of vinyl and selfie sticks.

This Christmas, judging by social media, the game Pie Face, was on a lot of people’s letters to Santa and is currently the second best-seller in the games category on Amazon, just behind Cards Against Humanity.

How to Identify Trending Products
Richard Lazazzera, an ecommerce entrepreneur who runs the great blog, A Better Lemonade Stand, recently identified 11 trending products for 2016 to help sellers looking for new product inspiration.

Richard uses a wide range of tools and techniques to help identify trending products including Google Trends, Instagram, Pinterest and trend publications such as PSFK.

Google Trends provides a graph spanning ten years showing how popular the search term is. You will also see a regional breakdown and any related search terms.

Here’s our seven favourite products from Richard’s list which we think could be big sellers on Amazon and eBay this year.

You’ll also see the interest graph for the search term from Google Trends for each of the seven products to help you see how the popularity and interest of the product has grown in recent years.

However, with increased product popularity also comes increased competition so do your own research on Amazon and eBay to find out how saturated the market is.

Ecommerce Product Trends for 2016

1. Coconut oil-based products
I started using Lucy Bee coconut oil for cooking recently as a healthier alternative to olive oil after seeing it on fitness guru, Joe Wicks’(The Body Coach) Instagram.

It’s become a huge trend within the health and fitness sector and continues to grab people’s interest as you’ll see from the Google Trends graph below. Coconut oil can be used for many different purposes from making your own soaps to helping you get to sleep!

2. Beard oil
The beard trend of 2014 and 2015 looks set to continue into 2016.

Beard products including beard oil are expected to be popular this year in what is fast-becoming a very competitive marketplace.

Beard oil is designed to make beards smell better and feel softer.

3. Green tea
The health benefits of green tea have been widely known for years.

Green tea is predicted to gain increased popularity in 2016, especially at this time of the year, after Christmas over-indulgence.

Green tea contains less caffeine than tea and coffee, and has many uses and product variations including green tea extract.
