Resistance Bands - Monday Market of the Week

Being versatile, lightweight and not requiring too much space to exercise with, resistance bands are fast gaining popularity among exercise enthusiasts, making it an ideal niche to explore.

What does the SaleHoo Research Lab say about resistance bands? Let’s check!

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

For the month of April they had a sell-through rate of 51.72% definitely qualifying resistance bands as this week’s niche.

A more specific niche to consider is Theraband which also shows great numbers!

Median End Price: Is there enough room for profit?

The median end price of resistance bands is $23.77. But you have to remember that the median end price on eBay can be ambiguous because the median end price is for all listings of a certain product which can include bulk listings that sell two or more units of resistance bands in a single listing.  The median end price can also be affected by listings that are using similar keywords for closely related products. Other factors to consider are the various brands and thickness available on eBay all of which can definitely skew our data.

Some of you might find the median end price to be a bit on the low end, but you can actually check the actual Average Price and actual Average Buy It Now price using our lab’s snapshot feature. You can see below that the average price of resistance bands is $34 while the average Buy It Now price is $45 - both of which are higher than the median end price.

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

Check out the market on eBay for resistance bands – 7,213 bids as of April with only 1,945 listings! Are you becoming convinced? I sure am!

Data Trends: Are sellers hitting their target?

Although sales took a drastic drop last April 28th, from the graph you can easily see that the sales for most of the month of April were between $2,000 and $4,500 with a peak of $4,520.90, certainly not bad!
