Market analysis for grocery products on Amazon. Brand comparison based on sales, reviews, and ratings. Predictive modeling for sales or revenue. Analyzing the relationship between price, sales, and reviews. Understanding the importance of product images in sales.

Acknowledgments: Data was collected using the Helium10 tool.

Let's begin by performing an Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA) on the provided dataset. EDA is a crucial step in understanding your data before moving on to modeling or further analysis.

Step 1: Load the Data & Preliminary Inspection

First, we'll load the dataset and inspect the first few rows to get a sense of the data structure and the kind of information it contains.

import pandas as pd

data = pd.read_csv("../input/amazon-uk-grocery-dataset-unsupervised-learning/dataset.csv")
(6341, 20)

From the initial inspection of the dataset, we can observe the following columns:

  • Product Details: Description of the product.

  • ASIN: Amazon Standard Identification Number.

  • Brand: Brand of the product.

  • Price: Price of the product.

  • Sales: Number of units sold.

  • Revenue: Total revenue generated from the product.

  • BSR: Best Sellers Rank.

  • FBA Fees: Fees associated with Amazon's Fulfillment by Amazon service.

  • Active Sellers: Number of sellers actively selling this product.

  • Ratings: Average user rating for the product.

  • Review Count: Number of reviews.

  • Images: Number of images for the product listing.

  • Review velocity: Possibly the rate at which reviews are added.

  • Buy Box: Information on which seller holds the "Buy Box" on the product page.

  • Category: Product category.

  • Size Tier: Product size classification by Amazon.

  • Delivery: Type of delivery (e.g., fulfilled by Amazon).

  • Dimensions: Product dimensions.

  • Weight: Product weight.

  • Creation Date: Date when the product was added.

Step 2: Data Cleaning & Preprocessing

Let's check for missing values and data types to ensure we can perform further analysis without issues.

# Check for missing values 
missing_values = data.isnull().sum()
# Check data types
data_types = data.dtypes

From the information provided:

Missing Values:

  • Brand: 17 missing

  • Price: 1,264 missing

  • Sales: 1,802 missing

  • Revenue: 1,511 missing

  • BSR (Best Sellers Rank): 453 missing

  • FBA Fees: 2,636 missing

  • Active Sellers #: 51 missing

  • Ratings: 828 missing

Data Types: Some columns like "Sales" and "Revenue" are of type 'object', which indicates they might contain non-numeric characters. We would need to convert them to the appropriate numerical format for analysis. Similarly, the "Creation Date" is of type 'object', and we might need to convert it into a datetime format.

Insights & Analysis: Before cleaning the data, let's derive a few insights based on the current information:

Which brands have the most products listed?

Distribution of products across categories. Average rating distribution.

Let's start with these insights.

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
# Insight 1: Brands with the most products listed

top_brands = data['Brand'].value_counts().head(10)

# Insight 2: Distribution of products across categories
category_distribution = data['Category'].value_counts()

# Insight 3: Average rating distribution

# Plotting the insightsfig, axs = plt.subplots(3, 1, figsize=(14, 18))
# Top brands
top_brands.plot(kind='bar', ax=axs[0], color='skyblue')axs[0].set_title('Top 10 Brands with Most Products Listed')
axs[0].set_ylabel('Number of Products')

# Category distributioncategory_distribution.plot(kind='bar', ax=axs[1], color='lightcoral')
axs[1].set_title('Distribution of Products Across Categories')
axs[1].set_ylabel('Number of Products')

# Rating distribution
rating_distribution.plot(kind='bar', ax=axs[2], color='lightgreen')
axs[2].set_title('Average Rating Distribution')
axs[2].set_ylabel('Number of Products')
axs[2].set_xlabel('Average Rating')

Most Product Listed - Distribution of Products Across Categories - Average Rating Distribution
Most Product Listed - Distribution of Products Across Categories - Average Rating Distribution

Here are some insights from the provided dataset:

  • Top 10 Brands with Most Products Listed: The bar chart shows the top 10 brands with the most products listed on Amazon. This provides an overview of the dominant brands in the dataset.

  • Distribution of Products Across Categories: The products are distributed across various categories. Some categories have a significantly higher number of products listed compared to others. This distribution can give insights into which categories are more populated or popular. The majority of products fall into the 'Grocery' category, followed by 'Food Cupboard' and 'Home & Kitchen'.

  • Average Rating Distribution: Most products have a rating between 4 and 5, indicating that many products are well-received by customers. There are fewer products with ratings below 4.

import matplotlib.pyplot as pltimport 
seaborn as sns

# List of columns to visualize
columns_to_visualize = ['Price', 'Sales', 'Revenue', 'BSR', 'Ratings']

# Set the style

# Plot distributions for the selected columns
fig, axes = plt.subplots(nrows=len(columns_to_visualize), 
figsize=(10, 15))

for i, col in enumerate(columns_to_visualize):
    sns.histplot(data[col], ax=axes[i], kde=True, bins=50)
    axes[i].set_title(f'Distribution of {col}', fontsize=14)
    axes[i].set_xlabel(col, fontsize=12)
    axes[i].set_ylabel('Frequency', fontsize=12)

# Examine correlations between key numeric columns
correlation_matrix = data[columns_to_visualize].corr()

# Plotting the correlation matrix
plt.figure(figsize=(10, 8))
sns.heatmap(correlation_matrix, annot=True, cmap="coolwarm", linewidths=0.5, fmt=".2f")
plt.title("Correlation Matrix of Key Numeric Columns", fontsize=15)

Distribution of Price. Sales, Revenue, BSR, Ratings
Distribution of Price. Sales, Revenue, BSR, Ratings

Correlation Matrix of Key Numeric Columns
Correlation Matrix of Key Numeric Columns

From the correlation matrix of key numeric columns:

  • Sales and Revenue: There's a strong positive correlation (0.92) between Sales and Revenue, which is expected. As sales increase, revenue typically increases as well.

  • BSR and Sales, BSR and Revenue: BSR has negative correlations with both Sales (-0.15) and Revenue (-0.16). A lower BSR indicates better sales, which explains the negative correlation. However, the correlation is not very strong, suggesting that BSR alone doesn't entirely determine sales or revenue.

  • Price and Ratings: There's a very weak negative correlation (-0.06) between Price and Ratings, indicating that the price of a product doesn't significantly influence its rating.

  • Other correlations between the columns are relatively weak.

Step 3: Basic Data Insights

  • Before deciding on how to handle missing values and further preprocessing, let's gather some basic insights from the data:

  • Summary statistics of numerical columns.

  • Distribution of products across different categories.

  • Distribution of products based on Ratings.

Let's start with the summary statistics of numerical columns

# Summary statistics of numerical columns
numerical_summary = data.describe()
Summary Statistics
Summary Statistics

Here are some insights from the summary statistics of the numerical columns:


  • The average price of products is around USD15,20.

  • The range of product prices varies from USD0.50 to USD254.99.

FBA Fees:

  • The average FBA fee is approximately USD5.40.

  • The fees range from USD0 to USD137.

Active Sellers #:

  • On average, there are around 3.6 active sellers per product.

  • Some products have up to 135 active sellers.


  • The average rating of products is 4.46 (out of 5).

  • Ratings range from 1 to 5.

Review Count:

  • Products have an average of 870 reviews.

  • The number of reviews per product ranges from 1 to 66,998.


  • Products have an average of 4.7 images.

  • The number of images varies from 1 to 25.


  • The average weight of products is approximately 5.2 kg.

  • Weights range from 0.01 kg to a substantial 881.85 kg.

Applying Artificial Neural Network to Dataset

An Artificial Neural Network (ANN) is more suitable for tabular data. Before we proceed, let's outline the steps:

Data Preprocessing:

  • Handle missing values.

  • Convert categorical variables into a format suitable for the neural network (e.g., one-hot encoding).

  • Normalize numerical features.

  • Split the data into training and testing sets.

Model Building:

  • Design an ANN architecture.

  • Train the model on the training data.

  • Evaluate the model performance on the testing data.

Model Evaluation:

  • Use appropriate metrics to evaluate the model's performance.


Before moving forward to ANN, let's talk about what is the optimal features for the model.

Wang and Wang (2003) stated that it was found that neural networks with a single hidden layer can do most of the job. They also stated that there is no theory on the number of hidden neurons. According to Kumar et al. (2013) selecting layers depens on two techniques; one technique is called optimize algorithm and the other one is hit and trial method. Abhishek et al. (2012) comes with certain approach to their research topic. Meaning that they stated a typical feed forward with back propagation network should have at least three layers- an input layer, a hidden layer, and an output layer. So, first and foremost, we should decide whether to use feed forward or feedback neural networks that we are going to use.

Feed forward neural networks are artificial neural networks in which nodes do not form loops. (1)

Feedback neural networks are dynamic. They are also referred to as interactive or recurrent (2).

So, what we are going to select will change our whole architecture. Since this work ChatGPT experiment let's select feed forward neural network. Because, prompting to ChatGPT is worse than writing the code itself.

When mentioning feedback neural network, the source entered the machine learning types. They explained the feed forward and feedback neural network and move on the some of applied learning structures. First one supervised learning which has one dependent and one and more independent variables. In this concept, the researchers select a dependent variable to predict and run their mathematical models. For instance, when we want to find what could possibly effect Sales given our datasets supervised learning methods could be our option to choose. In short, we control the what we are going to predict.

Second structure type was unsupervised learning. In this process, the researchers don't interrupt the prediction. They add the variables to their models and examine the outcomes of those models. After seeing the results they select the variables that they are going to use. One can think of this process as the preparation of the supervised structures. In other words, as researchers we apply unsupervised learning models to decide which variables are going to be added or maybe meaningful to model or significant to model. After that selection one can apply supervised learning models to hers/his research. With this application type, one can avoid human effect to hers/his model. Because, when applying directly supervised learning models one has to select its variables and there could be a potential biases with human interactions.

The final learning structure was reinforcement learning. In this process, mathematical models look for reward with few data (Wang, n.d.; Hu, et al., 2018; Vimal, et al., 2021). Since, there is rewards, there are punishments too. If we can enlarge the conversation, there is an agent that tries to reach ultimate destination which is rewards. To reach those rewards it has to pass states with getting punished by the model. As one can imagine rewards and punishments might differ from model to model or data to data or field to field, etc. Evidently, the agent reaches its destination. But sometimes it can't. This could be the outcome too. All in all, reinforcement learning is another method to use. Let's move on.

With that explaniation above, one should understand that we are going to select supervised learning methods while applying artificial neural network. Because, again, we are going to use ChatGPT to create our model.

To sum it up, the target variable is Sales. Independent variables are Price, Revenue, Review Count, Ratings, Image, Weight, FBA Fees, Active Sellers #, and Review Velocity. Feed forward neural network will be applied with two layers in it. Because, Sharma et al. (2017) mentioned that a thumb rule shows that a minimum 2 layers to be used.

The Neuron numbers can differ from research to research. In one thesis, the author used Google Analytics data and decide 256 as the neuron number (Vařeka, 2020, p.20). Georgia et al. (2019) described the selecting neuron numbers is the easiest paramater once independent variables are selected. The neurons will be presented by the independent variables. Since we have 9 independent variables our neuron numbers will be 9.

We never mentioned which activation functions to use. So, let's dive into this conversation. Activation functions transform the input signal to output signal (Sharma et al., 2017; Kayakuş & Çevik, 2020). Usually, non-linear functions are chosen and most widely used one is Sigmoid function (Sharma et al., 2017; Kayakuş & Çevik, 2020). With the help of non-linearity, we can extract complex and complicated information from artificial neural network (Sharma et al., 2017).

All in all, the target variable is Sales. Independent variables are Price, Revenue, Review Count, Ratings, Image, Weight, FBA Fees, Active Sellers #, and Review Velocity. Feed forward neural network will be applied with two layers in it. Sigmoid function will be our activation function. The dataset is loaded successfully. Let's proceed with the preprocessing steps: Handle missing values.

  • Remove duplicates based on the "ASIN" column.

  • Remove duplicates based on the "BSR" column.

Starting with handling missing values, we'll check for any missing data in the dataset.

Step1: Data Preprocessing

# Check for missing values in the dataset
missing_values = data.isnull().sum()
Product Details        0
ASIN                   0

Revenue             1511
BSR                  453
FBA Fees            2636
Active Sellers #      51
Ratings              828
Review Count         828
Images               492
Review velocity       50
Buy Box             1932
Category               0
Size Tier           1529

Dimensions          1516
Weight              1437
Creation Date          1
dtype: int64

The dataset contains missing values in several columns. For our analysis, we are primarily interested in the following columns:

  • Price

  • Revenue

  • Review Count

  • Ratings

  • Images

  • Weight

  • FBA Fees

  • Active Sellers #

  • Review velocity

Given the nature of the dataset (Amazon product statistics), we can employ a few strategies:

  • For numerical columns: Impute missing values with the median value. Using the median will be robust to outliers.

  • For categorical columns: We won't be using any in this case, but if needed, the mode (most frequent value) can be used for imputation.

Let's start by imputing the missing values for the relevant columns.

columns_to_impute = ['Sales','Price', 'Revenue', 'Review Count', 'Ratings', 'Images', 'Weight', 'FBA Fees', 'Active Sellers #', 'Review velocity']
# Impute missing values with median for the relevant columns

for column in columns_to_impute:
    median_value = data[column].median()
    data[column].fillna(median_value, inplace=True)
# Check if missing values are handled for the relevant columns
missing_values_after = data[columns_to_impute].isnull().sum()
Sales               0
Price               0

FBA Fees            0

Review velocity     0
dtype: int64

The missing values in the relevant columns have been successfully handled.

Next, we'll remove duplicates based on the "ASIN" column and then based on the "BSR" column. I'll start with the "ASIN" column.

# Remove duplicates based on the "ASIN" column
data = data.drop_duplicates(subset="ASIN", keep="first")

# Remove duplicates based on the "BSR" column
data = data.drop_duplicates(subset="BSR", keep="first")

# Display the shape of the dataframe after removing duplicatesdata.shape
(4502, 20)
from sklearn.model_selection import train_test_split
from sklearn.preprocessing import StandardScaler

# Define the independent variables and the target variable
X = data[['Price', 'Revenue', 'Review Count', 'Ratings', 'Images', 'Weight', 'FBA Fees', 'Active Sellers #', 'Review velocity']]

y = data['Sales']

# Split the data into training and test sets (90% train, 10% test)
X_train, X_test, y_train, y_test = train_test_split(X, y, test_size=0.1, random_state=42)

# Normalize the independent variables
scaler = StandardScaler()
X_train = scaler.fit_transform(X_train)
X_test = scaler.transform(X_test)
X_train.shape, X_test.shape
((4051, 9), (451, 9))

The data has been successfully split into training and test sets, with 3,601 samples in the training set and 901 samples in the test set. Now, I'll proceed to build the artificial neural network using the specified configuration:

  • Two layers with a feed-forward approach.

  • 9 neurons for each independent variable.

  • Sigmoid function as the activation function.

Let's define and train the ANN model.

Step2: Model Building

Define the Neural Network:

To define a feedforward neural network in Keras, you'll want to use the Sequential model. This allows you to build a model layer by layer.

from tensorflow.keras.models import Sequential
from tensorflow.keras.layers import Dense
model = Sequential()

# First layer with 9 neurons and input shape for 9 independent variablesmodel.add(Dense(9, input_dim=9, activation='sigmoid'))

# Second layer with 9 neurons
model.add(Dense(9, activation='sigmoid'))

# Output layer with 1 neuron for regression (no activation function)

Compile the Neural Network:

Before training, you need to compile the model, specifying the optimizer and loss function.

from tensorflow.keras.optimizers import Adam

# Instantiate the optimizer
optimizer = Adam()

# If you've defined your optimizer as:
optimizer = Adam(learning_rate=0.9)

model.compile(optimizer=optimizer, loss='mean_squared_error')

Train the Neural Network:

Train the model using the training data. You can also specify the number of epochs and the batch size.
