DIY equipment soon to become second fastest seller on ecommerce websites

In a recent survey held by parcel delivery company DPD, 2000 people in the UK were asked what their most popular purchases on ecommerce websites have been over the last year and also what they thought they would be buying over the next 12 months.

It found that over the last annual period 63% had bought books, 61% had bought clothing and footwear, 54% DVDs and 43% CDs, making these the most popular online purchases.  

However, the collection of items most frequently bought online looks set to change drastically, with DIY equipment moving faster and faster up the list.

Asked about what they would think of buying online over the coming year, the number of people who said they would purchase DIY equipment rose by 67% - putting it second on the list of the top 10 fastest-growing product categories. It was overtaken only by sporting equipment, which rose by 69%. Garden and outdoor products rose by 58% and kitchen and home goods by 44%.

Finding a niche in the market or finding out what is a most popular seller is key to starting an ecommerce website in which you can begin to sell. With these figures it is always a good way to get your foot into the door of an ever growing money making business.
