Generally speaking, Q1 is considered to be the worst quarter for sales, especially online sourcing. Returning after major holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Newyear, not many are ready to spend more. However, statistics from CNBC prove this wrong. People are ready to hundreds if not thousands to kick start their new year resolutions with 40.14% people ready to spend up to $500.
Having said that, 2022 is a challenging time for businesses sourcing from China. The approaching Chinese New Year will most likely cause disruption to sourcing, logistics, and shipping products. Therefore, it pays to understand the market and source things beforehand to help face the oncoming challenges.
Products to Import from China in 2022
People spend money on various products at different points of the year. The key is knowing which products they keep coming for. Here are some of the products that are expected to be the most profitable for businesses sourcing from China.
Disposable Face Masks
With the ongoing pandemic, there is no doubt that disposable face masks are in high demand. Moreover, they are easy to manufacture and ship considering that they are lightweight and hence have a high margin in profit.
However, the FDA regulates masks like N95 and surgical masks and will require customs clearance.
Tempered Glass Phone Screen Protectors
Screen protectors have been one of the most profitable products to import from China for the last few years. However, the key is in investing in the right models. For example, protectors for iPhone 12, 11, and XR models are highly demanded. Therefore, it also pays to keep an eye on the market for the new models.
Cell Phone Car Mounts
The cell phone car mount is another product that is high in demand but has quite a bit of competition. There are a wide variety of styles, and not every type is popular among consumers. However, the ones with magnetic hold and charging features are highly sought out.
Wireless Phone Chargers
Wireless phone chargers are a thriving and upcoming market since most modern smartphones come with wireless charging. These charges come in a variety of wattages, depending on the device. Most phones require a charger with a capacity of 7.5 to 9 watts.
Source for chargers with “Qi” functionality since a vast majority of the smartphone batteries charge through Qi.
Hydrocolloid Patches have been used in wound dressing for a while now. However, in recent times they have gained popularity for their acne-soothing properties. They are gaining so much popularity that they rank in the second position on Amazon’s Best Sellers list.
They are simple to manufacture, and with their lightweight composition, they can be imported for pennies per pack.
Jade Facial Roller Tools
Facial rollers hold the top position on Amazon’s Best Sellers list in the health and beauty category. They are famous for their soothing and anti-aging properties. Semi-precious gems such as Jade and Quartz are the material of choice among consumers. Since the Jade used for facial rollers are of a lower quality, they are pretty affordable but sell for sizable retail markups.
Air fryers is another cooking equipment that gained popularity during the COVID-19 lockdown last year. On the downside, they aren’t easy to import and store. Though consumers seek brand names such as Phillips and Instant Pot, there is always a market for affordable options.
