As we are continuously looking for growing niche markets, veganism becomes an often overlooked, yet profitable, and growing market to explore. From the outside point of view, this might seem like a small food related niche, but I am here to tell you that it goes far beyond that, and has a larger potential than you might see at first.

Veganism has the following potential sub niches and opportunities

Cruelty-free/Vegan beauty products
Cruelty-free/Vegan household products
Cruelty-free/Vegan and ethically sourced clothing
Cruelty-free/Vegan and ethically sourced jewerly
Vegan food/diet

As you can see, veganism is a much broader sub market to explore. With vegan-only supermarkets showing up all over the country, and vegan food options in every grocery store, you can see the consumer shift, in buying habits. Even larger, traditional brands have began to certify their products are vegan.

If you are looking for a new opportunity, but are not finding anything that fits in the more conventional and traditional categories, this might be a chance for you.

P.S. Veganism, and cruelty-free living would make a great lifestyle blog focus. If you are interested in starting a lifestyle blog, you can check out my training called How To Start A Successful Lifestyle Blog, right here on WA

Good Blog! I am looking into my niche. I want it to be related to this. Vegan'Veganism. But it is too broad of a subject/topic/niche... I think you know what I mean. But, I want to have a sub niche within Vegan/Veganism. So working on that. While this blog is great and has helped me even more. I still have a question maybe you could help? What do you think (or anyone thinks) About "Vegan Meat Substitutes" (Recipes etc) Or something along those lines?

I'm wondering whether Vegan Meat Substitutes is too narrow. It would be a great topic on a website all about veganism.

yes, it is. From the standpoint from a Mother of a Vegan (my daughter lives in my house, and I do all of her cooking), she hates meat substitutes for the most part. The same goes for my vegetarian son, so I don't think you should make that a niche on its own. And on top of that, how would you do affiliate marketing for that? It needs to be frozen or refrigerated in most parts, which eliminates Amazon for shipping (unless you want to push Amazon Fresh, or Amazon Prime 2 hour - and both are not available in many places, so you are limiting your audience). You could push it via referrals to Instacard, who delivers Whole Foods Products to your door, but you only get free groceries out of that one. So marketing and profiting from that would be a nightmare.

There are some dried meat substitute alternatives, but they are horrid, and are very limited.
Now I am talking only from a US market standpoint, of course, if you live outside of the US, you might have some better options for promoting products

Are you a vegan or vegetarian? If not, I highly suggest that you take a few weeks and switch to a vegan diet. You don't have to do this permanently, but just to see what challenges you might encounter. Then write about the solutions for those challenges. That is how you find a vegan niche that will fit you the best.

For example, my vegan daughter has at times a hard time, finding clothes that are vegan. And the same goes for household products, considering that she also has some pretty severe allergies. Both would be good niches for her, would she want to become a blogger.

Vegan is so broad...The modern veganism is not healthy at all...for example..vegan chocolate has no egg and milk and white sugar ... but there are lots of much more harmful ingredient's..aspartam ... saturated fats..and its expensive:)

you are talking about being a junk food vegan, of course, that is not healthy.
My daughter who has been vegan for three years now does not eat processed food and has a very balanced diet, based on high-quality organic produce, grains, and legumes.

If you eat chocolate, no matter which type, vegan or not, then you are doing something wrong with your eating. Oh, Lays potato chips are also vegan, did you know that? Not healthy for anyone!

How much research have you done on the subject?

I am not vegan, but I have an extensive background in health care, diets, food prep and alternative medicine, so I bet you have not done as much research in that field as I have

This is a huge market. So many people are either committed vegans or want to give it a try for all of the hype.
