Headphones are a popular accessory purchase and the headphone market has been rapidly growing in the UK, so stocking up on these can be a good idea for your wholesale business.
Headphones are popular all year round. Consumers purchase headphones as accessories for a number of gadgets including smartphones, tablet computers, video cameras, laptops and PCs. Most retailers stock headphones and it’s not just electrical stores wanting a slice of the action. Most supermarkets even stock headphones as an accessory purchase. The growing smartphone and tablet market could be a contributing factor to increasing headphone sales. Either way, most retailers see this market as a profit making opportunity and so could your wholesale business.
Figures released by Gfk Retail and Technology show that in 2011 consumers bought 10 million pairs of headphones (up 2m compared to the previous year) and the market is now worth over £160m.
As these items are relatively easy to store and, if bought from the right wholesaler of headphones, relatively cheap to buy in – they are a perfect item to have in your inventory. The team at Wholesale Scout have found some suppliers offering a variety of headphones at cheap prices. One wholesaler within the wholesale directory is offering headphones in a variety of colours for £3.50 per unit with an RRP of £10.
Although many headphones are relatively cheap to buy, there are also some more lucrative sets on the market that could provide some healthy sales for your reselling business. The increase in popularity of models like Beats by Dre have seen headphone prices soar as well as sales.
