Diet Patch - Monday Market of the Week

With over 100 million dieters globally, the weight loss industry is one of the biggest industries in the world. Did you know that at least $20 million is spent annually on various weight loss products? Now wouldn’t you say this is a good market to tap into?

Using the SaleHoo Research Lab, we managed to find a weight loss product that is certainly worth selling – the diet patch. The diet patch, also know as weight loss patch, is a form of medication that releases herbal nutrients through the skin. It is ideally formulated to help one achieve targeted weight loss.

Let’s dig a little deeper and learn more about this week’s niche. 

 Sell-through Rate: Did you really find a hot niche?

With a sell-through rate of 76.62% for the month of September, it would be hard to ignore this product! The diet patch’s sell-through rate is well beyond our target of at least 50%.

Median End Price: Is there enough room for profit?

The median end price for diet patch is $10.40. Please note that the median end price on eBay can be ambiguous because the median end price is for all listings of diet patches as well as accessories which can include bulk listings that sell two or more diet patches in a single listing. This can skew our data.

A snapshot can help us get a more accurate glimpse of the actual price a diet patch is selling for. As shown below the average price for a diet patch is $17.00 while the average Buy It Now price is $47.00, both are significantly higher than the median end price. The other hint we get from this data is that buyers clearly want the product right away and it appears that they will pay more when purchasing from a Buy It Now listing. 

Total Listings, Total Bids and Total Sellers: How viable is your market?

As of last month, there were 1,330 bids placed for diet patches while there are only 154 listings. Clearly there is room for more listings to meet the demand which is nearly 10 times more than the total number of listings!

Data Trends: Are sellers hitting their target?

With sales in a relatively constant range, the highest total revenue was recorded last September 4 at $554.06 while the lowest total revenue is $165.74.

It may not be a much as the revenue shown in our previous Monday Market of the Week  blogs, but it is reassuring to see that not a day went buy without a sale!

Supplier #2 and #3 do not carry the diet-patch at least not on their web site.
