Leading building materials and supplies retailers in Sweden 2015, by turnover

This statistic shows the leading building materials and supplies retailers in Sweden in 2015, by turnover. In that year, Ahlsell Operations generated a turnover of roughly 23 billion Swedish kronor, far ahead of Beijer Ref, which had a turnover of about 8.4 billion Swedish kronor. The revenue of B&B Tools amounted to nearly eight billion Swedish kronor.
Swedes do not spend their money on building materials and supplies all year round on an equal level. The monthly retail sale of hardware fluctuates, showing notable changes during the seasons. The biggest share was in May. Spring is the season, where people in Sweden traditionally start building and improving their homes. Also the retail sale of 'do-it-youself' (DIY) supplies in summer has a big share and still in autumn, people spend money for home improvement goods. It is no surprise, that January and February have the lowest share of the total annual DIY retail sales in Sweden as the cold and snowy winter weather in the Nordic country prevents people from outdoor work and many Swedes still recover their finances after Christmas.
