The 10 Best Dropshipping Niches of 2021 + 50 More Ideas

Looking for the best niches for dropshipping in 2021?  

Well, I've got good news for you. Not only am I going to give you the complete list for 2021’s most-profitable drop ship niches, I'm also going to give you my top ten niche list from the previous five years!  

That means you're about to get 60 proven-profitable niches to choose from! Now let’s get started...

2021: Best Dropshipping Niches for "The New Normal"

In 2021 we are focusing on "The New Normal". 

Here is what has changed: 

  • Increased amount of people working from home.
  • Increased amount of people concerned about health.
  • Increase in "free" time. 
  • Decrease in travel

The upper middle-class has more disposable income AND has more time to fill.

If you're a member of Drop Ship Lifestyle, my coaching program, you know that we specifically market to the upper middle-class.  

Right now more than ever they have extra cash, the ones who kept their jobs, that are working from home. 

They aren't dealing with the usual day to day expenses. The costs associated with commuting, with going into an office.   They are not traveling, so they're not spending money on that.

They have more time to fill because they are simply at home more. 

This is why the best dropshipping niches for 2021 all focus on their "new lifestyle" and where they are currently spending their disposable income.

These specific niches are in no particular order, but they target the above information. 

Here are my Top 10 Best Dropshipping Niches in 2021:

  1. Pet Supplies: Pet ownership is at an all time high.  You can be the business that sells the new owners the high-ticket supplies they need, and will continue to need. 
  2. Kitchen Supplies: With more and more people cooking at home, selling high-ticket supplies like Japanese knives or pizza ovens is more profitable than ever.
  3. Alternative Bicycles: Dropshipping electric bikes or adult tricycles is a great way to capitalize on the fact that more people are enjoying the outdoors.  
  4. Home Game Room Equipment: Home sales are at record highs and so are home improvement projects.  You can drop ship air hockey tables, popcorn machines, and more to everyone looking to build out their game rooms.
  5. Kids Workspace Equipment: Children and learning remotely and parents want them have to have a dedicated space.  Drop ship children's desks and chairs to catch this growing trend.
  6. Water Recreation Equipment: This niche also takes advantage of the fact that so many people are enjoying their free time while staying local.  Sell products like standup paddle boards and towable floats to help people enjoy the water!
  7. Outdoor Furniture: This is a great evergreen niche that is having a breakout year do to home owners investing their disposable income into where they're spending their time.
  8. Home Bar Equipment: Another area where homeowners are putting their money is into home bars.  Drop ship bars, bar stools, and even kegerators and watch the sales roll in.
  9. Wine Refrigerators: Not everyone is into beers and cocktails.  Build a store dropshipping wine refrigerators to make sure everyone over 21 is covered.
  10. Home Gym Equipment: This evergreen niche is booming in 2021.  Drop ship home gyms, kettle bells, free weights, treadmills, elliptical trainers or pretty much anything that falls into the fitness category and you will be positioned for success!

2020: Best Dropshipping Niches for Custom Products

In 2020 we are focusing on "Custom Product Niches". Why custom products?

  • Less competition
  • Relationships matter
  • High price points
  • High profits

Here are my Top 10 Custom Product Dropshipping Niches for 2020:

  1. Workbenches (Customization = Shelving, Power-Strips, Drawers)
  2. Stone Pavers (Customization = Design Builder To Recommends Shapes & Styles)
  3. CNC Machines & Tables (Customization = Water Tables, Plasma Cutters, Mounts)

2019: Brandable Niches

Moving into 2019, we were heavily focusing on brandable drop shipping stores. That means we needed niches that give us multiple opportunities for monetization.

While it's still very possible to make a lot of money with niches that only provide the opportunity for one-off sales, I do believe that as we move into the future, the more opportunities for monetization, the better.

Here are my Top Ten Brandable Dropshipping Niches:

  1. Minimalist Luggage: Build a brand around travel where you can drop ship minimalist luggage.  Add in another revenue stream by doing brand deals with travel companies and promoting flights as an affiliate.
  2. Home Gaming Setups: Build a brand around gaming where you drop ship desks, mounts, and gaming chairs.  Add in another revenue stream promoting PC parts as an affiliate to earn you extra commissions.
  3. High-Performance Workstation: Similar to home gaming setups, you can drop ship desks, mounts, chairs, and even treadmill desks. Build a brand around productivity and add in additional revenue streams by promoting project management software. 
  4. Home Gym Equipment: Drop ship weights, bars, stationary bikes, and kettlebells. Then build a brand around getting fit in the comfort of your own home.
  5. Tiny Home Furnishings: It’s not too late to cash in on the tiny home trend! You can drop ship all of the furnishings that tiny home builders need. Increase your revenue streams by referring clients to tiny home builders!
  6. Custom Window Treatments: Shutters, blinds, shades, curtains, drapery… you can drop ship all of these products while making a great profit margin! Add in another stream of revenue by partnering with interior designers and sending them referrals!
  7. Recreational Boating: Build a brand around recreational boating where you drop ship replacement parts and upgrade options for boater owners.  Add in another stream of revenue by doing brand deals with boat manufacturers, promoting boat shows, and promoting boat insurance as an affiliate!
  8. Home Theater Equipment: Build a brand around home theaters and drop ship the projector screens, the mounts, the seating, the shelving, and the popcorn machines!  Increase your brand reach by showcasing different home theater setups for different size rooms. Add in an additional stream of revenue by referring clients to home theater installation companies and also by promoting the electronic components as an affiliate.
  9. Indoor Grow Rooms: Cash in on the growing cannabis industry by drop shipping indoor grow rooms, lighting, and related accessories.  Increase your brand reach by sharing “how-to” videos. Add in another stream of revenue by doing brand deals with industry events.
  10. Kiteboarding Gear:  This is a niche that is continuing to grow with no signs of slowing down.  Drop ship the kiteboarding gear and start creating content to build your brand now.  Kiteboarding will be in the Paris Olympics in 2024 which should cause a huge boom in sales.  Do the work now and be positioned for even more success in the future.

So what niches are perfect for building Facebook groups?

Here are the Best Dropshipping Niches for Building a Community:

  7. Lawn Care: These are the type of people who win “Lawn of the Month”.
  8. Robot Building: Another expensive “toy” for adults. There are even robot competitions!
  9. Bio-Hacking: Huge trend that has grown in popularity over the past few years.
  10. Amateur Photography: So many accessories to talk shop about: light boxes, stands, green screens, filters, etc.

With these ten niches, you can build up an active Facebook group that your customer will love to interact with.

More importantly, you’ll have a brand that they’ll love to buy from!

  • Bruno says:

    Hi Anton, if I were to drop ship something big like pool tables, how would that work with shipping? Would it dramatically cut my margins? Also do people tend to buy pool tables online or do they go to showrooms?

    Hi Anton, I attended your free training the other day and the prices you quote for your course on the free training are cheaper than the ones on your website currently. Looks like the website prices do not take into account the discounts you offer in the free training? Which is a shame as I want to buy the course.

  • Richard says:

    Hi Anton!
    First of all, Thanks for content!
    I really liked 2020 top10 3th about CNC machines.
    It is great opportunity, I’ve had that idea while ago. But is there a possibility for big success? I think it’s quite small demand for that.

    • Anton Kraly says:

      100%! The beauty of this business model and with a niche like that is that you only need a few sales per day to equal huge revenue (and profit).

  • Shannon says:

    Been researching and note taking for a while now. Considering a Niche store with multiple products related to coffee and coffee lovers (brewers, reuseable kcups, etc), with a thought to eventually brand and possibly start own line of coffee. Seem legit?

  • Gigi says:

    Hello. I sat through the entire FREE training on 8/1/20 and received the DropShipLifestyle.com/Niches link to download the 237 dropshipping niche ideas, but it did not work. I’m just asked to sign up the the Free training again….

    • Anton Kraly says:

      Hi Gigi,

      I’m sorry about that!

      Please email support[at]dropshiplifestyle.com and we will get you taken care of 🙂

      100%! Lesson 6.5 of the Drop Ship Blueprint is actually called Search Engine Domination. It’s a 2.5 hour training I created sharing how to rank eCommerce stores organically 🙂

  • J R says:

    Do you think selling commerical restaurant equipment online, with the shipping cost, is a good idea?

    • Anton Kraly says:

      Hi JR,

      I’ve never researched that niche, but I can say that the shipping cost isn’t a concern. We sell very large and heavy items all day with no issues.

      If you’d like to learn more, I’d recommend you check out my next free training class.

      – Anton

  • Richard Chambliss says:

    How can you have a semi- hands off business if you have a custom business? Seems a customized business would be 24/7 as for as customer service. Thank you for all you do.

    • Anton Kraly says:

      Hi Richard,

      We use different Shopify apps that allow our customers to customize products (when applicable), and then we use custom automations to forward these orders to our suppliers.

      The reason I say “semi-automated” is because this is not always possible so human interaction is needed 🙂

  • James says:

    Do you think selling lighting and chandeliers is still a good idea? What would be great side sales with these? Thanks for all you do.

    • Anton Kraly says:

      Definitely! That’s a massive niche with hundreds (if not thousands) of quality suppliers.

  • Valeri says:

    Hi, Anton! Great post again, some food for new ideas. Anyway, I would like yo ask you as a dropshipper with huge experience, which niches are with the most profit margins? I am thinking of getting into the specialty home furniture niche, but not sure whether enough margins… Thank you in advance.
    Best regards,

  • Sobia says:

    hi! Anton
    I would like to ask if “zero waste lifestyle” is the best niche to work with or not? kindly guide me in this regard?

  • Pedro Bruno says:

    Luv your video it is the best content with complete info. ever . Thanks for Dropship Lifestyle .

  • Nodya says:

    Thanks for the tips. I want to ask will cat tower niche work? and stuffs based on this niche like cat merchandises?

  • Hello Anton would you say that is a good idea to have a variety store products like in my case i have pet products, jewelry and accessories, electronics and hime improvement products or is it better to just focus on one niche i have only made teo sales in one week

  • Doris Thomas says:

    Thank you, that was brilliant.

  • Curtis says:

    Hey Anton, thanks so much for sending me the information. Please keep sending the material.. I am enjoying the length of all of the videos. I am working and saving my cash so I can join The class.

  • MEW says:

    How about Pets niche?

    • Anton Kraly says:

      If the products are expensive enough I would so go for it! I’ve seen people do very well with things like chicken coops and bird cages 😉

  • Patrick Hurd says:

    Hey Anton I was just in your live webinar today would you say home spa products like home saunas could be a good niche or would the market be to small?

    • Anton Kraly says:

      Hi Patrick,

      I hope you enjoyed the webinar!

      I have never researched dropshpping home saunas or home spa products, but if you put them through the tests I share in my free training and they pass, you should be good to go!

  • Tyler says:

    Really helpful Anton! Thank you.

    When you say on average, you will make 20% profit margin on drop shipping products, is that including all expenses considered (ads, shipping, cost of good, website domain and shop etc..)?

  • Dennis says:

    Would selling vehicle tires be a good Niche? I was thinking of using NTB, also other items for vehicle maintenance such as batteries, filters, belts, oil changes,

    • Anton Kraly says:

      Hi Dennis,

      It’s worth researching, but I’d assume there are a few brands that dominate the tire industry. However, they may be opportunity within the other niches you mentioned.

      If you’re a member of Drop Ship Lifestyle be sure to go through Modules 2 and 4.

      If you’re not a member, be sure to check out my free training.

      Hope that helps!

  • Ankit says:

    Thanks in advance.

  • miguel tapia says:

    hey Anton, thanks for all the value you share. is music instruments niche good in 2019?

    • Anton Kraly says:

      Hey Miguel,

      Like with almost any niche, competition occurs at the product level.

      I’m sure there is a ton of opportunity in specific brands and products within the music instruments space.

      Be sure to register for my next webinar to see how we gauge competition:


      I’ll be on the webinar to answer questions so just let me know if you have any more.


  • Raffi says:

    Hi Anton, first of all, I would like to thank you for this great article.
    I’m looking forward to starting my first Shopify store and I’m doing so much research to find a good niche. I have been thinking of Coffee and Tea niche as I’m assuming this will have return customers monthly. What is your advice on this Niche?

    • Anton Kraly says:

      You’re welcome, Raffi! If you’re going to get into that niche, just be sure to sell the more expensive items as well!

      And if you’re serious about this, you should definitely check out my webinar! Here’s the link:


      Good luck!

  • Thank you for a great article, Anton
    I think “wireless devices” or “smarthome” are interesting niches too, you guys should try it.

    • Anton Kraly says:

      Hi Tinh,

      I’m not a fan of selling most electronics. Too much customer service for a lifestyle businesses 🙂

      • Mason says:

        Wow, what a Great Advice

  • Alexandros Karagiannis says:

    Hi Anton,

    Love you content and I am big fan of your podcasts. I listen to them everyday while I commute to work (makes the train journey a learning time which is great).

    I had a question around seasonality, you meantion not to choose a niche that is seasonal yet you picked Kite & Boating as a nich for 2019. Aren’t those considered seasonal? I liked at Google trends and would say 50% is up and 50% of the year to drops.

    Again thank you for all the value you have given us. All the best with the new move and house!

    • Anton Kraly says:

      I appreciate that, Alexandros!

      Regarding seasonality and the niches listed, you’re correct there is variance on how they trend based on the time of year. However, I give examples of what seasonal charts look like in the Drop Ship Blueprint and the niches that are truly seasonal have much more extreme peaks and valleys than what you’ll see for kiteboarding and boating.

      If you’re a member of Drop Ship Lifestyle you can checkout this video to see what I mean 🙂

      Hope that helps!

      BTW – if anyone sees this that doesn’t know about my podcast, it’s called eCommerce Lifestyle and you can get every episode (plus transcripts) here: click here to find it on iTunes. target=”_blank”>https://www.ecommercelifestyle.com/episodes/

  • Mo says:

    Great article. I’m thinking of dropshipping Curley hair products – any thoughts? Also any thoughts on how to go about locating those suppliers. Any advice from you would mean the world to me as I am just starting out . Many thanks. All the best to you.

    • Anton Kraly says:

      Thanks, Mo!

      Regarding dropshipping those products, it really depends on how expensive they are and if shoppers in that industry have any brand loyalty.

      My advice to you is to check out my next webinar where I dive deep into niche selection and how we validate our ideas:


      Just let me know if you have any questions!

  • Megan says:

    I like the idea of minimalist luggage, but would that be hard to find priducts that fit the price range you recommend? Also do you think home decor is oversaturated?

  • Megan says:

    Hi Anton!
    I have always been into aviation and want to become an aviator some day so I was wondering if there are some good aviation related niches you could suggest?

    • Anton Kraly says:

      Hi Megan,

      I don’t know that industry so I really can’t think of anything off of the top of my head besides RC planes and/or replacement parts/upgrades for small aircrafts.

      My advice would be to go through Modules 1 and 2 of my Drop Ship Blueprint and then use your industry knowledge to find something great 🙂

  • Seb says:

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

  • Ann says:

    Hi! What do you think about glitter trend? I’ve found that niche with glittering products can be profitable. But I still can’t choose what to sell…

    • Anton Kraly says:

      Hi Ann,

      That may be a niche that is trending… however, the price point is just too low.

      To make any real money you would need thousands or tens of thousands of orders per month.

      That’s just too much work for too little money.

      I would recommend you keep searching 🙂

      Check out my course and Done For You program if you’d like my help:


      – Anton

  • Julie says:

    What do you think about essential oils as a niche?

    • Anton Kraly says:

      I think they’re not expensive enough 🙂

      Too hard to acquire customers profitably at that price point. Espeicallly when drop shipping.

      If you’d like to learn more about how I pick products you should check out my webinar here:


  • tarek says:

    I am thinking of a Dolls niche shop. all type of dolls, dolls clothes, dolls accessories… what do you think ?

    • Anton Kraly says:

      The price sounds like it would be too low… however, I’ve never researched the niche before so I can’t say for certain. Are there products/bundles that sell for over $200?

  • Derrick says:


  • Ali says:

    Hi Anton,

    Why is the focus regional. Why arent you encouraging your students to sell worldwide…why focus in the US if you reside in the US?

    • Anton Kraly says:

      Hi Ali,

      That is because most of the items we sell are large and heavy.

      The cost of shipping them overseas is often greater than the cost of the products themselves so it just doesn’t make sense.

  • Travis says:

    What are your thoughts on 3D printing supplies?

  • Razover says:

    it’s just an awesome post regarding finding a profitable niche for blogging and affiliate marketing because find a niche is a very difficult task for the new blogger

  • Bill says:

    I’m a little confused. I see pottery/ceramics as being a top niche but when I search “pottery” on google trends it seems to be a seasonable niche, which would be a no go for a first time store, correct?

    • Anton Kraly says:

      Great question, Bill!

      If you check trends for the past 5 years you will see that there are small spikes around the holiday season. However, I would not consider this seasonal. A trends report for a seasonal niche will show huge peaks and valleys each year (meaning next to no sales in the offseason).

      You can search hammocks and check that chart for reference of a niche that is truly seasonal.

      Hope that helps!

  • Yawar says:

    Hi Anton,

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge and research with us! It’s really very helpful for newbies to get the right niche idea from your niche list given.

  • Kashif says:

    Hi Sir,

    Very nice article.

    Nowadays I am stuck between 2 niches.

    1. Men/Women (accessories, dresses, tops, belts, bags)
    2. Problem solution tools (kitchen problem solutions, bathroom problems, vehicle washing tools, gardening tools) etc.

    Can you help me out?


    • Anton Kraly says:

      Glad you got value from the post! My advice is to stay away from apparel. It has a very high return rate and it’s not worth your time when just starting out.

      • David Taylor says:

        Low margins on belts plus a struggle on finding reliable suppliers.. I drop ship belts very slow sales on ebay not sure why

        • Anton Kraly says:

          Hi David,

          Without knowing much about your business, my advice would be to get off eBay on bringing your store and sales onto Shopify.

          You can learn more about our selling system in my webinar here:


          Hope that helps!

  • Rox says:

    Wow, thanks for creating this! Can I ask, what type of restocking is there in restaurant equipment? I would think that equipment is ordered once and lasts years

    • Anton Kraly says:

      Hi Rox,

      Few ideas off the top of my head…

      If you sold commercial deep fryers you could sell oil.

      If you sold commercial blenders & drink machines you could sell glassware.

      If you sold buffets you could sell food trays.

      Hope that helps!

  • Ponmanian says:

    Awesome list but what is bio-hacking

    • Anton says:

      Basically everything that Dave Asprey talks about. Things like float tanks and blue blocker glasses 🙂

  • Vivek says:

    Nice research Anton Kraly. The top 10 Niches from 2015 to 2018 are here now. These are 100% genuine list. I will begin to keep following your blog.
    Good job. Please keep sharing.

    • Anton Kraly says:

      Thanks, Vivek! And keep checking back to the blog every week! We release a new eCommerce / drop shipping post every Tuesday 🙂

    Love this idea, it’s limitless and tests ones creativity in order to make a sustainable business. My whole life I feel as if I’ve been in the wrong job. I started as a carpenter, then I learnt the knowledge of London, becoming a black cab driver, which I’ve done for the past 15 years. I detest driving in London now days but can’t help feeling it’s a great way to get feedback. Anyhow always been a practical person and my computer skills are limited. I’m adaptable and very ambitious

  • Ankita says:

    You have covered different niches in different years. Thank you for sharing this list with us.

  • La Tasha says:

    Hello, looking to see if Shopify is the best platform to use for drop shipping. What your opinion?

    • Anton Kraly says:

      ?% it’s the easiest to use, the most secure, the easiest to customize, and they have the best support.

  • Michael says:

    do you have any smaller package deals?
    Honestly, I really think your Done For You package is a great deal….
    I just cannot afford it… 🙁

  • Honish says:

    Hi Anton, is orthopedic braces i.e neck, back, knee, wrist a good niche to get into? Would like to know your opinion

  • rajendra says:

    is there any specific niche categories for Indian eCommerce bussiness.

    • Anton Kraly says:

      Hi Rajendra,
      My advice would be to use this list of niche and to do business in the U.S.
      We have many students from all around the world (including India) who are doing that:
      Drop Shipping Outside The US

  • Joy Pearl says:

    Hi Anton!
    I am currently folling your free Drop Ship Lifestyle mini-course and am excited every day to get the next module?
    I’m assuming at the conclusion of the free mini-course will be an option to become a student of yours by “purchasing” your more in depth courses. Will you offer an option to make 2-3 pymts or will the pymt be due in full only?

  • Oula Daughlas says:

    Hi Anton
    Good info, is it possible to dropship from kenya?

  • Sukhpreet says:

    How to add product photos to our website?
    When order is placed in our store How to transfer order to supplier?

    • Anton Kraly says:

      Hi Sukhpreet,
      Add photos to Shopify is extremely easy… we show you how to do this in our Shopify Video Course but this part is also very simple to figure out on your own.
      Regarding sending orders to suppliers, you could do this manually (via email) but if you’re a member of the Drop Ship Lifestyle Coaching Program then you have access to the Drop Ship Lifestyle Shopify app which will automate this for you 🙂
      Hope that helps!

  • Noel says:

    Many thanks for sharing this article, Anton!
    Thinking of getting serious with dropshipping, good thing I checked here. Found a few niche ideas that resonated with me.

    • Anton Kraly says:

      You’re welcome, Noel! And if you really are serious about drop shipping then you are in the right place 🙂

  • Abner wang says:

  • diogo sousa says:

    Best regards,

    • Anton Kraly says:

      Glad to hear you’re getting value, Diogo! Wishing you and your family nothing but success in this new year 🙂

  • Robiul Islam says:

    Hi Anton
    Thanks for sharing these great niches with me.

  • Steve DeGayner says:

    Anton, What do you think of Wine fridges for a good niche. Either that or Ecigs

    • Anton Kraly says:

      eCigs would be a no go because it will be next to impossible to get (and keep) a merchant account in good standing.
      Fridges could be good, but you’d have to do the research to confirm! I teach this in Module 2 of the Drop Ship Blueprint.

  • David Pham says:

    Thanks for sharing, well come to Viet Nam Anton!

  • nonso says:

    pls is possible to dropship from Nigeria in Africa? Thanks in advance

    • Anton Kraly says:

      Hi Nonso,
      Your only problem would be getting a merchant account. However, you can use Stripe Atlas and that would work. Hope that helps!

  • Kris says:

    Great information! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  • Odbitka says:

    Great niche ideas! Definitely worth analyzing and give a try.

  • christopher says:

    I would still like to come and apprentice with you, if you’re not overwhelmed and overstocked with prospects. I have some skills and knowledge, and I believe my biggest enemy is Fear !! Reason being is I’ve given some valiant efforts, with virtually no return. I owned my own website at one time and I currently have an ebay and amazon store. I was considering selling the MCA road service packages, so that is why I own most of the whymca domains. They want too much for the .com site. So if you’re interested, please contact me. I am a Round Rock Resident. Thanks, Chris

  • Anton Kraly says:

    Hey Everyone,
    As many of you already know I created Drop Ship Lifestyle after selling a network of eCommerce stores and then trying to find a community of other store owners to network with… What I found was a bunch of scammers who promised newbies they would get rich quick by following their push button systems!
    This lead me create a new community along with online training that shares how to build a REAL online business.
    I’d love to hear what you think… it’s 10 video training modules designed to help you drop ship profitably… all for free.
    Be sure to click here to check it out and send me your feedback 🙂
    If you go through the “What Is Drop Shipping?” mini-course and still have questions just contact me and I will help you out.
