Home Shopping - France - March 2009

Mintel’s report “Home Shopping in Europe” in 2009 covers the 19 largest home shopping markets in Europe. We focus on the principal economies of Western Europe plus the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland.

The reports for the UK, Germany, France, Spain, and Italy are available separately. All other countries are only available in the single copy 19-country version. But it is this report that gives the full overview of home shopping in Europe.

In this report we use data provided by the leading European trade associations EMOTA and FEDSA. The European Mail Order Trade Association (EMOTA) is the main representative body of the mail order industry in Europe. EMOTA comprises 18 national trade associations. The Federation of European Direct Selling Associations represents the direct selling associations in Europe. It consists of 27 country member associations and we are grateful to FEDSA for allowing us to quote its data.
