01. Monk fruit extract

google trends chart for monk fruit extract

One of the hottest trending products to sell in 2022 might also be the sweetest—literally. Experts predict that the natural sweeteners market will hit nearly $166 million in 2022, with an anticipated compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.7% over the next five years. Leading the way is monk fruit, most commonly sold as monk fruit extract. It’s 150 to 200 times sweeter than sugar, contains zero calories, and some studies show it may have disease-fighting antioxidant properties. You can sell monk fruit in liquid, granular, or powdered form, and “monk fruit powdered sugar” is a breakout keyword performer. Monk fruit is trending in the U.S. and Canada.

02. Matcha tea

This hot product is brewing up tons of revenue, interest, and online sales. While Google Trends data (captured above) seems to suggest a decline in matcha-related searches, revenue numbers show a different trajectory. The global matcha tea powder market is expected to reach a CAGR of 9.4% between 2021 and 2031. And the tea industry overall is forecast to hit $229 million in 2022.

It wouldn't be a far stretch to say that matcha is becoming a more commonly known term—its health benefits pepper online articles, and bakeries and cafes have upped their assortment of matcha-flavored goods—leading to a decline in everyday searches. Still, match is a trending term, particularly in Hungary, Czechia, and Canada.

03. Gummy supplements

As shoppers look to boost their overall wellness during the COVID-19 pandemic, they’re turning to gummy supplements for help. The overall industry is growing at a CAGR of 6.1% and could reach a market size of $6.7 billion by 2031. Two trending gummy supplements in 2022:

CBD gummies

Interest in edible CBD gummies spiked big time in mid-2021. They’re just one item in a whole line of trending products containing CBD, the non-addictive, non-hallucinogenic part of the hemp plant. CBD gummies are often infused with other ingredients and may help fight anxiety, chronic pain, and sleep. They’re currently trending in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. Note that you need to comply with several legal requirements when selling CBD online, and some eCommerce platforms don’t currently support CBD businesses (fortunately, Wix does).

Melatonin gummies

As pandemic-era stress keeps consumers up at night, many eCommerce shoppers are purchasing melatonin gummies. These products help regulate your sleep cycle and are generally believed to be safe for both adults and children. They’re currently trending in the U.S., Australia, and New Zealand, with three of the top five breakout searches focused on “kids melatonin gummies.”

04. Non-fungible tokens (NFTs)

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) became one of the hottest trending products to sell in 2021, with sales topping a whopping $4 billion. NFTs can include music, art, collectibles, gaming assets, fantasy sports, and more. They attract enthusiasts across multiple verticals. And while they could only be purchased with cryptocurrency in prior years, shoppers can now buy NFTs with credit cards from online merchants, making them a great addition to your online store. The hottest NFT markets are in China, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

05. Crypto wallets

Two thousand twenty one was the year that cryptocurrency hit the mainstream, led by Bitcoin, which recorded several all-time highs. Crypto wallets give cryptocurrency holders a place to store their online keys and access their cryptocurrencies. While some crypto wallets are purely online products, others are physical products that look like USB drives.

Crypto wallets stole the spotlight in 2021, and while search activity has slowed since the initial hype, interest in crypto wallets remains strong coming into 2022. Nigeria, Burkina Faso, and New Zealand are some of the highest-interest areas for crypto wallets.

06. Mineral sunscreen

Experts predict that in 2022, global travel will be even busier than pre-pandemic levels. That means plenty of beach trips and a need for consumers to protect their skin from sunburn. And, as shoppers gravitate toward more natural and sustainable products, interest in mineral sunscreen is spiking, especially during warmer-weather months. These sunscreens use zinc oxide or titanium dioxide to reflect the sun’s UV rays from the skin. You can sell them in powdered, spray, or lotion form. Trending countries include Canada, and the U.S.

07. Collagen

When it comes to year-round skin care, collagen is emerging as a trending product in 2022, with the market expected to grow by 9% annually through 2028. Collagen is a protein that makes skin stronger, which in turn reduces wrinkles, eliminates sagging, and plumps up aging skin. Collagen-based beauty supplements are most often sold in powder or supplement form. They’re posting big growth in Vietnam, the Philippines, and Singapore.

08. Dog poop bags and donut beds

More than 23 million Americans bought a pet during the pandemic, and all those pet owners need plenty of supplies. Trending pet products include dog poop bags, which have shown steady search interest in the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, and the U.S. over the past two years. Breakout stars online include “compostable dog poop bags” and “earth rated dog poop bags.”

google trends chart for dog donuts bed

Just like the name suggests—dog donut beds are round, fuzzy comfort cushions shaped in a circle. Pet owners (and their canine companions) can’t seem to get enough of them. They’re trending in the U.K., Canada, U.S, and Australia, with country-specific searches (“dog donut bed uk” and “dog donut bed australia”) among the breakout eCommerce stars.

09. Portable solar panels

google trends chart for portable solar panels

According to a 2021 study of more than 10,000 people across 17 countries, 85% of consumers say they’ve shifted their purchase behavior over the past five years to embrace more sustainable products. That’s why portable solar panels are one of the trending products to sell in 2022. Their popularity stems from the renewable energy and money saved on power bills. Mini portable solar panels can be used to charge laptops, smartphones, tablets, car batteries, and camping gear. They’re trending in Australia, New Zealand, and the U.S.

10. Minimalist wallets

As people carry less cash with them, they’re giving their wallets a serious diet. Minimalist wallets are lightweight and slim alternatives to their bulkier old-school cousins. They allow people to carry just a few credit cards and a limited amount of cash. They’re trending in the U.S., Singapore, and Canada. With lots of different options on the market, your online store can find the right ones to match your market and drive your eCommerce sales up and to the right.

11. Car parts

google trends chart for cart parts

Experts predict that the ongoing inventory shortage of new and used cars will continue well into 2022. That’s a boon to the automotive aftermarket sales industry, which reached $325 billion last year and is growing by 11% annually. Searches for “car parts'' are surging in the U.K., Ireland, and New Zealand—and both car and truck parts are providing great opportunities for eCommerce merchants. Want to get into the game?

12. GPS navigation systems

Despite the rise of Google Maps and app-driven mobile solutions, many cars today still lack an integrated GPS system. Among this cohort (albeit the cohort is smaller than in previous years), standalone GPR systems are still in demand, with a market size that's expected to reach $32.2 million by 2026. These systems are particularly popular among shoppers in Australia, Canada, the U.S., Philippines, and India, with “car gps navigation system” being the top-trending keyword.

13. Ergonomic chair

As the pandemic enters its third year, workers worldwide are expected to continue embracing flexible schedules and work-from-home options. For most workers, ergonomic chairs are a must-have for their home offices. These chairs are designed to correct your posture and reduce back and neck pain. Search interest in ergonomic chairs swelled at the start of the pandemic and has remained strong ever since. Singapore, Australia, and Canada are hot markets.

14. Projectors

The home theater is back, and in a big way. As a growing number of consumers choose to watch movies on streaming services in their homes instead of in a theater, shoppers are gobbling up projectors of all shapes and sizes at a fast rate. Some choose full-size projectors, but mini projectors are gaining in popularity. Some consumers are buying up projectors to use inside the house, while others are using them to turn their backyards into an outdoor theater. No matter which type of projector you choose to sell, it’s a good bet you’ll find customers in trending spots like New Zealand, Australia, and Ireland.

15. Home security cameras

With many jobs remaining remote, more time spent at home means a greater need to keep you and your family safe. That’s why wireless home security cameras are some of the top-selling Amazon products, even now. Consumers love their relatively inexpensive price point. Security cameras are trending in Australia, Canada, and the U.S. There’s interest in all types of home security cameras, including everything from basic 1080P cameras to more sophisticated 2K and 4K models.

16. Wearable devices

What do you get when you combine a renewed interest in health (and wellness) with the global rollout of 5G technology? Answer: you get a superstar market for wearable devices. Global shipments of wearable devices like sports, fitness, and wellness trackers are expected to reach 344.9 million in 2022, a 13.2% increase from 2021. China, Philippines, and South Korea are hot markets, with “wearable medical devices” and “wearable smart devices” cropping up as popular Google searches.

17. Power banks

People love their mobile devices, and they want to keep them charged wherever they go. That’s why power banks remain a top-trending product to sell in 2022. Unlike mini solar panel chargers, power banks are most often battery-powered and sell at relatively low price points (typically between $25 to $75). Qatar, Oman, and Zimbabwe are areas where interest in power banks is surging.

18. Blue light glasses

Most of us spend an exorbitant amount of hours looking at our laptops, smartphones, and tablets. Blue light glasses aim to protect our eyes by filtering out potentially harmful light waves that are emitted from our devices. They’re trending in New Zealand, Australia, and the U.S. Popular Google searches like “do blue light glasses work” highlight an opportunity for you to win over consumers by providing helpful facts on your product listings.

19. Athleisure
