The Pros & Cons of Running a Niche Business
It can be challenging for a new business to compete with all of the established companies offering such a wide variety of products and services in different industries. This is why small and medium-sized businesses will often carve out a niche to make them stand out and differentiate themselves from their competition.
Competing in a niche industry can be beneficial as you may face less competition and enjoy more pricing power. Still, some disadvantages can come with running a business that is so specific. The market is small, the opportunity for growth is limited, and successfully implementing a niche strategy requires creativity and innovation.

Shopify defines a niche business as “a segment of a larger market that can be defined by its own unique needs, preferences, or identity that makes it different from the market at large.”
A business owner’s interests, understanding of a niche, and approach to business owning and operating will indicate if they are suited to run a niche business or not.
