Description

This report series looks at the DIY sector in the five largest Western European countries – the UK, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain.

The data in its entirety is contained in the single copy five-country report. Single country reports are also available for the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy.

The DIY market is much more diverse than a simple definition of core DIY products, and the market, as it exists at the moment, reflects the product offer of the major DIY superstores rather than that of a small edge-of-high-street hardware shop.

In each country we provide:

  • a Mintel market size estimate
  • annual sales data and forecasts for the specialists sector
  • sales and outlet figures for the leading specialists as well as market shares
  • And for each country we provide data on participation in the online channel.

Our exclusive consumer research spans all five countries. In each of these markets, we asked consumers:

  • Which retailers they had bought DIY goods from in the last 12 months, and whether this was online or in-store.
  • What DIY jobs they had carried out over the last year and what they planned for the coming year.
  • Additional questions were asked to consumers for the UK report.
