The 10 product categories with the highest search traffic on IndiaMART as of May 2021.

IndiaMART gets around 14.6M traffic hits each month. Unlike IndiaMART’s top products, product categories relate more closely to what people search on IndiaMART itself, rather than what people search for on Google. It has thus become more reflective of purchase intent, as opposed to specific companies or images that are popular. 

Even so, some of these in the top 10 may surprise you. Read through to find the popular products you’d otherwise never know people are searching for!
