Five High demanding commodities in Nigeria

1. Information

There are many things I want to list as number one on this list but information tops them all. You are reading this post because you need information. Knowledge is power, right? This blog exists because I know millions of young Nigerians need information to get out of poverty and become successful. I don’t sell this information but I still make money because I’m able to satisfy people’s appetite for information. The most expensive, high-in-demand commodity on the planet is information. So what information do you possess that people need?


You would agree with me that soaps are an everyday item. Everybody in Nigeria uses soap. Whether it is in solid, liquid or powdered form, soaps have a high demand in every part of Nigeria. They are generally used for washing and for bathing. So if you are looking for a commodity that sells rapidly, soap is definitely one of such commodities.


Power banks provide a means to extend battery life and charge phones while on the go. They come in different capacities and are very portable. Considering the epileptic nature of power supply in most part of the country, many people in Nigeria, particularly the youths, will look for an alternative source of power to charge their mobile phones. You may not produce power banks but you can order some cheaply from aliexpress or alibaba at cheap rates and resell them to people who need them.


They say ‘never get in between a woman and her hair’. This list would be incomplete without hair extensions. Nigerian ladies love them and are prepared to spend a lot of money on them. Hair extensions and synthetic hair come in different styles and quality ranging from Peruvian hair to Brazilian hair, etc. Ladies love to look good and fashionable resulting in a high demand of hair extensions.


Still on fashion, clothes and shoes are hot commodities in Nigeria. There are different clothes and shoes for men, women and children. Also different occasions will require different outfit. Most people in Nigeria have more than one pair of shoes and many changes of cloths. As the trend in fashion continues to evolve, cloths and shoes will continually be in high demand.
