Leading DIY retailers in the Netherlands 2010-2015, by number of stores

In 2015, the leading DIY retailer in the Netherlands was Gamma, with 166 stores countrywide. Other important DIY retailers were Hubo and Praxis, with 156 and 145 stores respectively. But although Gamma had the largest number of stores, there was one DIY retailer with a larger retail floor space in the Netherlands that year. The shop floor of Praxis was slightly larger than Gamma’s, nearly 595,000 square meters vs. 535,350.

 DIY retail sales volume

  In the last decade, DIY retail stores have seen a considerable decline in sales volume. Between 2007 and 2013, the retail sales volume decreased year on year. After 2013 sales picked up again slowly, but by 2017 the sales volume was still far below the 2007 level. For the next three years however, a continuous growth of the DIY store retail sales volume is forecast. In 2019, growth is expected to reach two percent in this branch.

DIY retail and e-commerce

     In a 2018 survey, respondents were asked about their preferred purchase channels for DIY products. A large majority of nearly 80 percent still stated to prefer the brick-and-mortar stores over their online counterparts. Comparing the results with a similar survey done in 2015 however, the share of people with a preference for buying DIY products online nearly tripled, from three percent in 2015 to eight percent in 2018.
