How Does Florida Sourcing Activity Stack Up To National Trends?
Just three of the top 10 most in-demand products and services being sourced in Florida are also among the top 10 most in-demand products and services being sourced nationwide. These categories — Injection-Molded Plastics, Corrugated Boxes, and Printed Circuit Boards — may seem like crowded verticals when looking across the country. However, the data shows that there is enough buying activity, both within and beyond Florida, to go around. Ramping up your digital marketing activity via PPC ads and video promotion can help you take advantage of the demand and convert in-market buyers into customers.
The other seven categories on the list represent unique opportunities for local suppliers. In particular, the volume of buying activity for sewing manufacturers, contract manufactured clothing, and supplements, should be eye opening. If you offer these products or services, now is the time to get in front of these buyers by listing your business on the platform.
