Market development prospects
In the traditional sense, the reasons for using candles are related to religious, cultural, vital needs and other reasons. Global consumer demand for candle products has been stable for a long time and has a certain upward trend. But in the 21st century, the candle market is slowly changing! The author also talks about the perspectives of the scented candle wholesale market based on years of experience in the wax art industry.
As mentioned above, candles are traditionally used for religious, cultural and domestic purposes. At the moment, candles purchased from a retail network are not intended for traditional use. Modern candles are more advanced towards scented candles and wax art. The following author will take you through a real case of the successful transformation of an offline manufacturer of traditional candles such as aromatherapy candles:
This is a professional candle maker. In the early years, he produced traditional candles, mainly for domestic and retail sales, and can be considered an everyday fortune. However, since China's accession to the WTO in 2002, competition in the market has become increasingly fierce, and the performance has also been declining day by day. In fact, friends who understand marketing will definitely say that this is not very normal. From the growth stage to the maturity stage, the company at that time entered a period of decline. At this time, either transform into a new product, or quickly take the money and leave. At first, the boss thought that after so many years he would earn enough to return home to the old people, but he could not bear to see that the employees who had worked with him for many years were about to lose their jobs, so he decided to think about transformation. But it's not so easy to want to change. After much fruitless deliberation, he found a new way!
It's not exactly a new road, it's a scene I encountered while traveling abroad: the boss's child was studying abroad, and on Christmas Eve the boss and his wife flew to the US to visit their daughter. When I saw the wax shop on the shopping street, the boss entered the shop out of the curiosity of his peers. This is not surprising, the decoration and design of the store is very exquisite, and the difference from ordinary traditional candles is that these candles can still smell like flowers after being lit. And the price is even more stunning, a candle that looks just like your candle except for the color can be sold for thirty dollars! It's equivalent to RMB, but it's a sky-high 100 RMB candle! Is anyone buying this too? The boss continued to consult with the owner and found out that it was the most popular aro at the time.matic candle in the United States. Many white-collar workers and the industry elite spend money to buy these candles. And many people in the hotel, restaurant and wedding industry bought goods in bulk to create the atmosphere of the stage, and the restaurants that could light such candles at that time, almost all asked for a lot of money! A candle factory owner who has been in the industry for many years found a business opportunity with years of business sense: A scented candle that is not difficult to make can be sold at a high price, why can't we do it? For this reason, the boss bought all kinds of candles and rushed back to China for research. Finally, he developed candles with the same smell, color and quality, and exported them to Europe and America, opening a new era for the company!
From this case, it is not difficult to see that candles are not just basic necessities in the traditional sense. More reflected elsewhere! For the "new version" of the candle industry, the general development trend will be more life-oriented, which is the so-called ideal state of life. But as of 2013, there are very few large-scale and professional candle manufacturers on the market.
Indeed, for people in developed countries, as mentioned in the previous introduction, scented candles in Europe and the US are already a commonplace in the life of employees, and in China, scented candles are still an empty market. There are almost no competitors, and the market potential is huge!
