Admit it, you already have a few ideas what fits in our 10 best selling products in 2016. Ending is better than mending, shop till you drop and other mottoes have paid off. It’s an undeniable fact that we are living in a consumer society, and ever more trying to keep up with the Joneses, or should I say, the Kardashians. Be that as it may, people have never gone shopping more than nowadays. First, the number of shoppers is constantly increasing (naturally, the world’s population is always on the rise) and persuasive marketing strategies have become a real science. Or an art, depending on how you look at it.
Speaking of science, let us see how we got to this (un)expected list of world bestsellers. To get you the 10 best selling products in 2016 we first asked the Telegraph about the companies which obtained the highest revenue last year from selling their products. The enterprises from the list are as different as their products, so you are definitely in for some interesting reading. However, since insurance, banking services and heavy equipment companies do make the best sellers, but we believe them not to be appealing to our avid readers, they have been crossed off the list in order to focus on the categories you are keen on finding more about, such as video games and perfumes. We have found the bestseller for each category after consulting the websites that are experts in that particular area, such as Billboard or Forbes. Also, if you have already checked our article on 10 Best Consumer Products in the World, don’t worry, we have some unforeseen surprises here that are being bought as you are reading this. Actually, it is quite likely you got some of them today or this week.
Therefore, let’s see what various items people worldwide spent their money on the most in 2016.
