Various online shops for glasses have long since recognized the trend: Customers can use a 3D configurator to design T-shirts online according to their individual preferences, e.g. for themselves or as gifts for others.

In this paper we would like to analyze the potential of T-shirt configurators from the perspective of corresponding online providers. The core question is: “Is it worth investing in a T-shirt configurator at this time?”.[mfn]Explanations of the technical terms used in this article can be found by clicking on the following link.[/mfn]

Since a T-shirt configurator is integrated into the website via the homepage, the focus here is on online analysis.

In a first step, we will analyze the demand for T-shirt configurators with Google’s Keyword Planner using various keywords. This will be followed by a trend and competitor analysis of the most important competitors, some of which will be based on keywords.

Finally, an overall assessment is made on the basis of the findings.

Analysis with the Keyword Planner.

The following table contains relevant keywords related to T-shirt configurators according to the keyword planner of Google Ads:
