Description

This report series covers the 19 leading economies of Western Europe. In total these countries account for around 95% of all European retail sales, excluding Russia. The remaining ten countries are either too small (e.g. Luxembourg) or are not sufficiently well developed to warrant detailed coverage (e.g. Romania and Bulgaria) in this report. These developing countries plus Russia and Turkey are covered in Mintel’s European Retail Handbook 2011/12 – September 2012 and the report, Retailing in Emerging Markets – July 2011.

This data in its entirety is contained in the single copy 19-country report, which gives a full overview of clothing retailing in Europe. Single country reports are also available for the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy.

As in previous years, the focus of the European clothing report is the clothing specialists, because these are the dominant players in the sector. Nevertheless, for each country in this report we provide total consumer spending data for clothing, which includes expenditure through all channels. And we include Mintel’s Channels of Distribution estimates for each European country (Poland excepted), which indicates how this spending is distributed by type of retailer.

Our company profiles now also include a number of non-specialist retailers including Carrefour, El Corte Ingles, Otto Group, Tesco, Asda and Debenhams. The full European report includes profiles for 22 top retailers.
