Rising Trends: Magical Tea, Anti-anxiety Furniture, and Window Cleaning

Today, let's look at lucrative business opportunities with rising trends like magical tea, anti-anxiety furniture, and window cleaning.

Magical Tea

Herbal teas have gained significant popularity over the past few years with increased awareness about the potential side effects of our regular caffeinated drinks. 

Multiple herbal teas have made their mark on tea lovers worldwide, including those made from flowers like jasmine and chamomile. While these teas are famous for their soothing flavors, some teas like butterfly pea flavor tea were not garnering mainstream attention until recently. 

Butterfly pea flower tea is having its moment now. 

Butterfly pea flower tea, also known as blue tea, is a herbal tea with zero caffeine made from the Clitoria ternatea flowers, a butterfly pea plant. 

The butterfly pea plant is commonly found in most Southeast Asian countries. The deep blue color of its flowers’ petals has traditionally been used to make dye. Its tea until recently was only popular in Asian countries like Vietnam and Thailand, where it is served post-dinner.

Blue tea has multiple benefits, including antioxidants, reduced stress, lowered blood pressures, glowing skin, weight loss, etc.

However, its most unique selling point – and a characteristic that made it famous, is that the blue tea changes color when its pH balance changes. For instance, if you add lemon in the butterfly pea tea, its color will change from blue to purple, creating what is referred to as “magical tea.” The more lemon juice you will add, the deeper shade of purple you will get. And if you mix it with Fuschia roselle hibiscus, you will get a bright red color, too (12). 

According to Jungle Scout, some organic butterfly pea flower tea makes about 48k to 60k USD a month on Amazon (34).

The tea is being popularly used in cocktails where the showmanship of the cocktail making includes the instantaneous color change in front of guests that ordered the drink. Other uses of the butterfly pea flower extract in punch bowls or cocktails include freezing the tea into ice cubes, leading to a color change of the drink as the ice cube melts, leading to what has been named a “mood ring cocktail.”

You can capitalize on this magical tea trend by including the key ingredients in flavored waters and drinks, DIY bubble teas, and even popsicles (5). You don’t even have to stop at beverages. You can also consider adding flowers into beauty and cosmetic products such as lotions, bath bombs, and soaps, thanks to their multiple beneficial properties. 

There is also a whipped lemonade trend getting viral on TikTok at the moment (6); you can also combine this magical tea with it. Dalgona coffee flashbacks anyone?

The company, which attracts more than 200k website visits a month, claims that their zero-gravity beanbag chair made with responsive high-density beads resembles the calming sensations of floating therapy. 

Alexia Audrain specifically designed an OTO chair for people with autism to stimulate a huge (9). Apart from beanbag chairs and support blankets and pillows, you can also take inspiration from The Nugget and offer modular furniture for niche markets, children, for example (10). 

You can niche the trend by offering anti-anxiety wearables and furniture for pregnant women, the visually impaired, and other conditions.  

Notably, several mental health care facilities are also repurposing office pods to build “quiet pods,” where clients can relax before their therapy sessions (11). You can also expand the concept to build a wide range of pods targeted at corporates looking to offer a calming space for their employees.

You can take the trend further by offering furniture or wearable infused with calming smell, music, textures, etc. AyaZen, for instance, made an eye pillow with a silky material and infused it with lavender. The scent of the lavender can help people calm down, offering either to block any light or comfort to relax the rear head (12). The brand also offers some eye pillows with flaxseeds, allowing them to get microwaved and turning them into a warm compress. 

Apart from dogs, you can also offer anti-anxiety pillows, beds, hammocks, snugglers, etc., to other pets like cats, rabbits, rats, guinea pigs, and other smaller pets.

Despite taking a knock last year amid the coronavirus pandemic, the facade cleaning services industry worldwide is still worth about 61 billion USD. There are projections that it will reach over 90 billion USD by 2025 at a 6.3% CAGR (12).

Notably, the forecast is likely to grow as the business is recovering, with numerous countries like India, Brazil, and the US witnessing an unusual surge in demand for cleaning services. The demand for deep cleaning is also rising in the worst pandemic-affected countries, leading to a spike in the price of these services.

Since the cleaning industry’s labor force is in dread and hazard of sickness transmission, they need higher pay compared to the standard rates sought after businesses, pharma, and assembling places, for instance. People are also asking for urgent cleaning of their offices and homes as things have started to return to normalcy, there is also an increase in the residential cleaning market. 

In addition, the popularity of natural light and all-glass buildings is also spurring the demand for professional window cleaning services (13).

Such massive demand for cleaning services can lead to an overburn, resulting in a demand and supply gap. According to a cleaning industry trends report on service industry analysis, the cleaning industry is much similar to the car wash market; the exterior building cleaning industry is also extremely fragmented. 

It means that the window cleaning industry has attractive roll-up opportunities for entrepreneurs who are not looking to start a cleaning business. 

The fragmented cleaning services market has also led the industry’s big players to embrace the method of collaborations and acquisitions to increase their market share. Hence, if you are looking to stay ahead of the pack, ensure that you watch out for other emerging trends in the industry.

It is worth highlighting that people have become more hygienic and have raised their requirement to work and live in a safe and clean environment because of the coronavirus pandemic, leading to a profitable future for the global cleaning industry. As vacancy rates are falling, directly influencing getting cleaning services for commercial and industrial places, the industry can also leverage it.

People still favor outsourcing window cleaning services compared to other processes even though the worldwide economic conditions are in rough positions. In short, the future of the window cleaning industry is looking clean and shiny. 

Notably, Netherlands uses robots and drones to clean their building windows to save labor costs and other complex environments (14). You can also find different ways to incorporate robots and drones to include in your cleaning businesses.

As we mentioned earlier, if you are not interested in owning a window cleaning business yourself, you can also create apps and other platforms that help commercial window cleaners manage their business. You can develop a Ring My Barber for the cleaning industry, connecting people to independent cleaners.  

There is also an opportunity for eco-friendly cleaning agents and sustainable practices in the cleaning industry.
