As Amazon's replenishment of non-essential products gradually returns to normal, many sellers’ sales have soared. Recently, Stackline, a leading research organization, released a list of the top 100 fastest-growing categories for online transactions. Most of the products on the list have grown by more than 100%, and the highest even increased by 670%. Sellers can take this as a reference for analysis of product selection.
It is not difficult to find from the list that most of the surging sales are indoor products, especially indoor fitness equipment, with an increase of more than 300%, showing a good overall trend. According to Google Trends, the search volume for fitness equipment in the United States has skyrocketed in the past two months.
Here is some popular fitness equipment:
The popular indoor fitness training equipment can train the whole body muscle and effectively improve muscle strength, physical activity, and flexibility.
·Abdominal Roller/ Trainer
It is one of the most traditional training equipment, which is made of a stainless steel shaft and foam handle. With mute pulley, it will not damage the floor when using it.
It can be roughly divided into two types: upright bikes and flywheel exercise bikes. The upright bike design is simple and can be folded; the flywheel exercise bike is professional, like the treadmill. But no matter which type, it is the first choice for aerobic exercise at home.
It is one of the most common and widely used sports equipment. The home treadmill can not only meet people’s exercise needs but also be folded. Convenient for preservation, saving a lot of room.
Products with surging sales may have a potential infringement crisis, and sellers should take precautions to avoid it.
The trampoline can not only be used to exercise the body, improve heart and respiratory function, but also can be used as a toy for children.
There are many trampoline products on Amazon, and many have applied for appearance patents in Europe and the United States.

Amazon's criteria for determining patent infringement on appearance are: if they are roughly similar, and whether it can tell the difference between two products from the point of view of the general public. That is to say, through comparison, whether the general public will mistake the product in question as a patent product. If it is easy to misidentify, the risk of infringement is high.
This criterion makes the appearance patent infringement more common and more easily detectable. At the same time, it also greatly increased the lethality of appearance patent infringement. Once similar products are found, infringement complaints can be filed, and similar products are almost impossible to escape.
