Market ResearchCosplay comes from the combination of the words “costume” and “play” and involves people dressing up as characters from video games, television shows, anime, movies or books. They may decide to act in character while in costume as well, making it more of a performance art. What started mainly as a hobby popular in Japan has exploded into a multibillion-dollar industry that has surged in popularity in the U.S, Europe and Australia.
People can spend thousands of dollars on things like convention tickets, hotel stays, custom-made costumes and props. As an example of this incredible growth, Comicon in Phoenix has grown dramatically from about 23,000 attendees in 2011 to more than 106,000 attendees in 2016. Cosplay offers people a chance to show off their creativity, connect with other like-minded individuals and sometimes even allows them to make a few dollars.
There were approx 8100 people in Australia searching for cosplay per month with approx 1500 people searching for cosplay costumes with very little competition. Worldwide there were over 550,000 searches for cosplay monthly with 40,000 searches for cosplay costumes on Google. Please Note: The data shown above is derived solely from the Google search engine and does not consider search data and volume from other search engines.
The PotentialThe cosplay costume business will become an online supplier of a variety of adult and kids cosplay, anime and special occasion costume clothing and accessories. The business owner will be able to supply both consumers and businesses in Australia and various other countries with supplies both pre-branded and with custom branding and packaging.
How Much Could I Make?Using the search data above, we take the sale price of a typical cosplay costume to be $80. Purchasing this directly from our Manufacturer will cost approx $15.00, giving this product a markup of approx 430%. Therefore, if profit is $65 and you converted 10% of the 1500 monthly searches for cosplay costumes, your revenue will be $65 x 150 (Sales) = $9750 / month ** Minus Advertising Costs.
** Please keep in mind that any potential earnings or income mentioned is general in nature and dependent on a variety of factors. It is to be used strictly as a guide only. *** Profit potential also doesn’t include other forms of advertising that can be employed by the owner such as B2B email mailouts, Facebook & Instagram Marketing, Online support groups and more.
How Does it Work?
This business is operated on a very unique model that allows you to sell goods directly to your customers without holding any stock. Suppliers for this business have been sourced from long term International locations with fast shipping options which is especially crucial during busy periods.
With this business, you wont need to hold any stock as goods are shipped directly to the buyer and for locally stocked businesses, minimum order quantities are very low so you really only need to stock on what you need. Ask about which option best suits you.
