Top 30 Market Trends in June

From Same Day Retail Deliveries to Eco-Friendly E-Commerce Packaging

— June 19, 2021 — Business
As the global market becomes more interconnected, the May 2021 market trends highlight e-commerce innovations and smart products for niche demographics. Given the in-person limitations of the pandemic, digital technologies catalyzed new opportunities for businesses to target previously untapped populations through specialized products and services.

Capitalizing on the pandemic's physical limitations, The Gift Card Shop sells digital gift cards from over 100 popular brands such as Mastercard and Walmart. These virtual gift cards can be attached to personalized e-cards that carry thoughtful and celebratory messages. The preloaded cards offer consumers an accessible way to give their loved ones the gift of choice.

Walgreens launched a pandemic-friendly service that offers two-hour delivery on over 24,000 of its products. The contactless delivery service enables consumers to continue to shop for their favorite products in a safe and convenient way.
