Latest Developments in the Dropshipping Industry
Dropshipping has become a highly profitable, fast-growing industry over the past few years, and has attracted hundreds of new investors, suppliers, and consumers. The industry gained overnight popularity in the wake of the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic when online shopping saw a 52% increase in the number of customers.
Three years later, the dropshipping industry is still growing and helping dropshippers make millions of dollars annually. However, the industry is also becoming increasingly competitive and experts have estimated that the average dropshipping success rate is only 10-20% at present.
There are various e-commerce platforms that offer dropshipping services, with Shopify Inc (NYSE:SHOP) being the most popular, and eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY) also being favored by retailers. The cost of these platforms ranges from $14.95 to $599 per month, with certain discounts offered for annual subscriptions.
Experts at Shopify Inc (NYSE:SHOP) suggest that building a successful dropshipping business depends upon the products that you choose to sell and how effectively you market them to your target customers. Other contributing factors to a successful dropshipping business include time and patience, since it is a low-risk, long-term business model.
According to an estimate by Shopify, dropshippers need to invest approximately 15 hours every week to establish a successful business and to earn a monthly revenue of $2000 on platforms such as Shopify Inc (NYSE:SHOP) and eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY).
Amazon.com, Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) has also launched its own service called Fulfillment by Amazon (popularly known as FBA), which allows retailers to eliminate dropshipping supplier companies from the process altogether.
Retailers can use this service to contact various product suppliers directly through the Amazon.com, Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) platform and the FBA team takes care of the shipping and customer service hassle.
Ali Express is also a leading company which provides dropshipping services to US-based dropshippers through its US warehouses, but since it is a primarily China-based e-commerce company, with the majority of suppliers based in China, it is not included in this list of the biggest dropshipping suppliers in the United States.
Benefits of Using Dropshipping Suppliers from US
US-based suppliers have a lot of benefits to offer to dropshipping retailers from the United States. For starters, they deliver products to end consumer much faster compared to international suppliers. For example, US-based vendors take between 2-7 days to deliver a product which would take 4-6 weeks if it was supplied from China.
These suppliers also comply with return policies which are convenient for customers and necessary for dropshippers to establish brand trust and credibility. Retailers who source their products from American suppliers can guarantee high product quality to their customers and can label their products "American-made", which improves the sellability of products from a market perspective.
Lastly, US-based dropshippers can easily keep track of their supply-chain which comprises of suppliers based within the country, can easily verify their authenticity using reviews on Google, and establish a direct communication with them.
Outlook of the Dropshipping Industry
Starting from a mere $128 billion in 2020, the dropshipping industry has grown and expanded in 2022, reaching a global market size of USD 196.78 billion. Industry experts believe that these figures will only increase in 2023, reaching USD 243.42 billion. This 23.7% growth rate is likely to continue in the future as well, which means that the dropshipping industry will almost double its market size to USD 476 billion in 2026.
Between 2022 and 2031, the industry is expected to grow at a rate of 27.1%, eventually reaching a market size of $1670.1 billion. At present, the products pertaining to food and personal care categories are widely popular for dropshipping, as they are expected to drive approximately 30% of the industry’s compound annual growth rate (CAGR) until 2025.
According to Grand View Research, the global dropshipping market will have an expected worth of USD 1,253.79 billion by 2030, provided it maintains the anticipated CAGR of 23.4%.
