Product analysis

Customized product categories

  1. Candle lights, on the basis of candlesticks, add bulb heating to provide more abundant light source and warmth, and can also extend the burning time of candles. Among various styles, the average price is the highest, while Chinese sellers only rank third in proportion. Perhaps due to the small number of Chinese sellers, the price is not inflated, slightly higher than candle lights with timers.
  2. On the basis of the candle heating lamp, a timer is added to turn off the lighting function regularly, which not only meets the basic functions, but also increases the satisfaction of “expected demand”. Among various styles, the sales volume, sales amount, Per Customer Transaction, and ASIN number are the highest.
  3. Another way to heat candles is to use a heating base, which can extend the burning time of candles, make melted candles more uniform, absorb excess wax oil to prevent waste and pollution, etc. Among various styles, the average sales volume of a single ASIN ranks second.
  4. Lighting with a candle shape has nothing to do with the “candle” entity. It is a pure lighting product with a high demand for holidays such as Christmas and Halloween. Among various styles, none of the indicators are outstanding, but it belongs to seasonal products. Due to the special shape, it carries a part of rigid demand.
  5. The replacement bulbs for candle lamps are generally sold in combination (starting from 4 or 6 in a group). Due to the small size and easy wear and tear of the bulbs, the demand is also high. Among various styles, monthly sales account for the second largest proportion, and Chinese sellers account for the second largest proportion, with the lowest average price, but the average sales of a single ASIN are the highest.
