Why Sell Umbrellas Online?
With approximately 33 million umbrellas sold to Americans each year, it’s safe to say that the umbrella industry is a reliable one. Even Google Trends can confirm that the umbrella industry has been steady for the past five years making it a great niche for store owners looking for a stable niche. As your store begins to grow in popularity you can expand into other verticals such as outdoor products, fashion, or stores with everyday items. Umbrellas tend to be popular in South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom making them great markets to sell your products to.
Dropshipping umbrellas is the least risky way to start an umbrella business. With a dropshipping business, you can choose to offer your customers a wide range of umbrellas in unique styles and patterns. As umbrellas tend to be most popular during rainy seasons, wholesaling umbrellas would require a storage unit for unsold inventory. You can also expand your umbrella business to include related products such as rain boots, raincoats and more with a simple one-click import and no additional fees. Dropshippers can add up to 30,000 products to their store, risk-free. You also don’t have to worry about packaging and shipping making it an easy business to start up.
Umbrellas are a popular item offered by distributors at Oberlo. There are many different shapes and styles of umbrellas that are available. These include the typical windproof umbrellas that can be folded into pocket-size versions. There are also heavier varieties such as windproof and reverse folding umbrellas, with many different designs and a range of various colors to choose from. There are also long-handle umbrellas to choose from, which are normally made of a stronger material and are a bit heavier in comparison to the smaller umbrellas which can be carried easier. Distributors also offer umbrellas for those who need to protect themselves from the sun, with anti-UV sun protect umbrellas available as well.
The main manufacturers of umbrellas are located in China (Mainland). The demand for umbrellas, however, is highest in North America, Western Europe, and China itself. Manufacturers of umbrellas use a variety of materials in the production process, which mainly includes wood, nylon, and polyester. To manufacture an umbrella, normally the shaft is made first, which consists of wood, metal or sometimes even fiberglass. Next, the nylon canopy is attached to the shaft. In modern days, the umbrellas that are collapsible into a small size are sometimes favored due to the ease with which they can be carried. The choice of nylon as a fabric for umbrellas is now commonly preferred by manufacturers due to its qualities to drench rain, dry quickly, fold easily, and the range of colors in which it is easily available. Among the top qualities that manufacturers focus on when it comes to umbrellas includes the comfort of the handle, the ease with which it can be opened and closed, and the material of the canopy.
