Why should you care about the best-selling brands and products analysis report? Last year’s market research indicates electronics made up approximately 26.6% of total US sales on Amazon.
Electronics sales didn’t just excel in the US; global consumer electronics market share brought in a total of 729.11 billion USD in 2019 (Fortune Business Insights). The electronics market share is projected to grow from USD 689.45 billion in 2020 to USD 989.37 billion in 2027 (Fortune Business Insights). Amazon sales, in general, surpassed sales of Walmart, Target, and eBay, making it an ideal platform to bring in profits from electronic product sales.
Consumer electronics are particularly popular perhaps because modern electronic engineers design them with problem-solving in mind. They also offer buyers improved ability to connect, track and manage everyday activities related to health and well-being, and make it easier and more fun to enjoy movies, and music using smart devices. (Forbes)
Some of the most popular products among consumers include widescreen television sets, trending miniaturized electronic devices, and smart devices (Fortune Business Insights)
The use of artificial intelligence is becoming more widespread and is especially prevalent in the development and implementation of consumer electronic goods. For example, Amazon has released its first AI-driven Alexa-on-wheels, a Robot named Amazon Astra.
Smart devices have also seen substantial growth and market share. Smart electronics have evolved far past their original purpose of simply providing connection to the internet and other devices. In 2022, the consumer electronics space will incorporate machine learning more than ever before. Some electronics devices will offer intelligent power management (Forbes), used to prolong device battery life and intelligent thermostats which determine how to heat your space in the most efficient way possible (Forbes).
A standout among the list of consumer electronics to be released by Amazon in the upcoming months is the Amazon Always Home Cam. This flying drone is equipped with disturbance detectors, alarms, and subscription-based professional monitoring. The highly-anticipated consumer electronic product will be released and sold by invitation only.
DataHawk’s Amazon analytics tools also use artificial intelligence to pull categorical data and break that data down into usable and actionable insights. Let’s jump into the report analysis.
Within the Best Sellers Ranking, Electronics boasted a total of 985 products, with 277 Best-Selling brands present. Electronics spent every day of the past year (366) as a best-selling product category, bringing in a massive $4,745,900,000 in annualized sales.

Amazon Best Sellers Electronics: Brand Performance
The bar graph below displays the brands in the electronics category that spent the most time in the top 100 BSR list. This graph represents the same data shown previously before but is simply presented in a different way. You can use two further KPIs to measure performance using this graph.
As previously discussed, the presence rate shows us how much time one or more products spent in the top 100 of the electronics category.
The presence rate formula = Days spent in the Best 10 * / 365 X 100.
Presence Rate refers to the time spent by one or more products of a brand in the top 100 of a given category over the last year.
ASP Average is the average of one or more products’ selling price of brands in the top 100 over the last year.
This graph shows the performance of the best ASINs for each brand in terms of their ASP Average compared to their presence rate. If you have products in other categories, you can run reports for each using the Amazon Best Sellers Tool.
