Discover 187 Profitable Arts & Crafts Niches

Filed in Niche Market Ideas, Ultimate Guides & Resources by on December 16, 2013

The arts & crafts market is expected to exceed $40Billion US by 2015 which is almost the same size as the US film industry.

It's currently seeing a huge resurgence in both the UK and US and a boom in developing countries such as China which emerged as the worlds largest auction market for fine arts in 2010.

The reasons for the boom in the market are varied but include more people taking a DIY approach as people look to save money by making products themselves.

Craft items such as sewing, cake making and jewelry making supplies have seen huge increases in sales. People enjoy not just saving money but the process of making the items themselves over buying them.

Does this mean it will die out when the economy picks up again?

Not likely as it's been growing steadily for years and it's predicted that with the improved economic situation consumers will have more disposable income to spend and the major retailers will pick up on the trend

So how can I hack my way into this $40 billion market?

Well the first thing to do is pick a niche within the arts & crafts market.

Whether that's 'collage making', 'decoupage', 'knitting' or 'creating balloon animals' (yes that's a niche!) there's literally thousands of niches to explore and an incredible amount of sub-niches.

Once you've picked a niche you'll need to quickly learn as much as you can about it and evaluate it for profitability through using some of the techniques I talk about in the Ultimate Guide To Find A Niche Market  and How To Create Content In A Niche You Know Nothing About.

These including using Wikipedia to understand the basics, browsing through Amazon books for inspiration on topic ideas, checking both Amazon and Clickbanks market place to see what sells, joining popular forums and reading blogs to see what issues and problems people have within the niche and so on.

Or you pair up with a knowledgeable hobby blogger or forum member in the niche as talked about in my 10 Authority Hacks post.  

From there you could launch a blog on your niche of choice, create information products solving the main problems in the niche or even create a price comparison or niche e-commerce site

E-commerce is getting bigger every year and niche e-commerce sites are booming. The beauty is you don't even need to hold stock if you hook up with a dropshipper who fulfills your orders.

I really like the idea of a niche e-commerce site as people in the arts and crafts niches buy a lot of stuff and tend to by often though it will be more work than a blog promoting affiliate products.

So let me see these arts and craft niche ideas...

They are arranged in A to Z order and they also come with the monthly exact searches for USA from the Google Keyword Planner tool.

All of the arts & crafts niches listed have over 1,000 exact monthly searches and there are products selling on Amazon, Ebay and Clickbank plus a host of niche and boutique retailers.

They are all listed below but if you'd like a downloadable excel sheet copy of the list so you can further examine the list and arrange by search volume or simply keep for later you can get access by sharing on your favorite social media site....

    I am not sure what to do with the information here. I mean I have been doing craft shows for over 30 years. I have never made over $250.00 at any show. They love the eggs they just don't want to pay for them. My eggs sell for less than half of the eggs in the U.S. So I got a web site, yes that went well. Was up for 4 months not ONE single email Not ONE sale in all that time. So I have pretty much given up .I just think eggs are not something anybody wants I really regret spending money on a site that went no where at all. I am really thinking of taking it off of google altogether. Why make something no one wants. I am retired and can't afford to spend anymore on this problem. By the way YES I did buy some google AdWords another waste of money!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Thanks Betty

      Hey Betty,

      Sorry to hear that you're not having much luck. I can't give any advice about craft shows but websites and traffic I can. Simply having a site online isn't enough. It being in Google means nothing especially if not at the top of Google for related searches for people looking to buy what you are offering.

      You need to go out there and get traffic to your site yourself, no one will send it to you. Adwords can be one way to do it yes but you have to know what you are doing or otherwise money will be wasted and quickly.

      Traffic, regardless of site / niche, is about knowing WHO your target audience is and WHERE they hang out online then having a presence there through content or adverts.

      Though before you launch a website you do need to evaluate whether there is actually any demand for what you are offering and if you've been trying to sell these eggs for 30 years and no one is buying then I think that tells you there's not much demand for them, right?

      So a website probably isn't going to generate much money.
