I recently set out to do this. https://www.datakick.org/
The mission: Build a database of every product in the world that is free to everyone. It's licensed under CC0 (Public Domain Dedication) and all the information is available for download. There aren't many products yet, but it's a start for those who want to make this a reality.
EDIT: DataKick has ...
Short answer, no.
Long answer - there are attempts at creating a "global" or should I say "universal" UPC database and there are some vendors with large UPC databases (and even those who provide API access), but none of them are hardly "universal".
This is a problem that I have personally been grappling with. At work I manage a large number of SKUs (in the ...
In the future, Wikidata will be the best, but for now, the most pragmatic solution is to use DBpedia.
Go to the Smartphone page of DBpedia
Scroll to the is dbpprop:type of section
On the right is a list of 300 smartphones
Each of these pages has a lot of information like CPU speed, weight, battery, storage, etc
This information is available as RDF/JSON/CSV. ...
Grocery.com has launched (Sept. 20, 2014) an open data project ("open grocery database project") to list UPC codes, brand, product and other information on products sold in grocery stores. According to their website:
We start with a small installment. Our first file contains a little over 100K grocery products with the following data points: grp_id, upc14, ...
I would suggest looking into scraping/programmatically downloading this data from Wikipedia. The data can be found in the right infobox of device pages (such as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPhone_3G). You can get a list of devices at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smartphone#Devices and also a comparison table which might have everything you want at http://en....
BestBuy publishes product data through Products API or in RDF/XML dumps (see sitemap here).
Linked Open Commerce is an attempt to aggregate data from e-shops, including descriptions of products.
An older (2009) attempt to publish product data is ProductDB.
As I can understand from this blog post they split the database in groups of interest and they update products in base of these groups.
Without Ι know more than this blog post, several companies provide the option to contact with them and arrange a different paid package for their API. I don't know if this is the case for Amazon, but why not?
www.keepa.com is a similar website to camelcamelcamel. I cannot find a way to download the data but maybe you will.
In addition, Terapeak provide a free package with limited api calls (500/months) where you can find historical prices.
You can also scrape (or better yet contact and ask the folks at) https://thetracktor.com which seems to have some great historical data.
EDIT - Adding example:
https://thetracktor.com/ajax/prices/?id=881549&days=90 is the JSON response powering the graph at https://thetracktor.com/detail/B0054JJ0QW/, for example.
Semantics3 has an API for products. It gives you UPC, dimensions of products, pricing and other details that typically show up on an Amazon search.
Semantics3 is not open data, but there is a free tier that allows 1000 API calls per day, which may be enough for experimentating.
[Update: As of Jan 25 2015, the page linked in this answer no longer provides the download page or the POD site. A search on the website shows something related to accessing this POD but after quite a bit of search, it doesn't appear that any of this data is actually available.]
The most promising open data source at least for sellable products seems the ...
The National (US) Renewable Energy Laboratory provide open-source LCI (Life Cycle Inventories) for products, which contain inputs to and outputs from production of products.
From the "on the project" page:
The U.S. Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) Database is a publicly available database that allows users to objectively review and compare analysis results ...
Parts Manufacturer Approvals
FAA actually publishes parts approvals, but Google doesn't show it in top results:
This database contains the FAA Parts Manufacturer Approvals and may be viewed by make, PMA Holder, and part number.
Aircraft Replacement Parts Guide
UHTT on Github: https://github.com/papyrussolution/UhttBarcodeReference.
The largest and most accurate open reference book of bar codes on the Internet! If you do not believe it, the search engines will help dispel doubts. Slightly less than 3 million bar codes of ean13, ean8, upc-e, upc-a standards with corresponding names, brands and ...
There are a number of routes that you could take depending on the scope and requirements of your project. I recommend using Amazon's Product Affiliate API, however there are a few other options available as well.
Free with Terms & Conditions
Amazon offers a comprehensive database of product information. This API is available through their affiliate ...
It looks you can get product+barcode data commercially from http://www.mynetfair.com. At least http://www.barcoo.com uses their data. However, barcoo also crowd-collects so that may be bidirectional. (I like what they do and hope they will include allergy info with their food data at some time)
Not exactly what you are looking for but any cosmetic containing sunscreen is in the Structured Product Label dataset at FDA (http://labels.fda.gov/), which is part of the openFDA effort (https://open.fda.gov/drug/label/).
For now the best place to check in on the status of the project is here:
Currently there are some volunteers trying to get the site and databases up and running again.
this stackexchange question has a lot of answers in regards to what you seek, but the most important one being the wurfl (wireless universal resource file) database:
It might be possible to crawl or scrape the US PTO DB (http://www.uspto.gov/trademarks-application-process/search-trademark-database) for each brand, but there are a lot of trademarks for products that don't currently exist; that could make things hard depending on the application.
