Total number of supermarkets in the Netherlands 2014-2018

Total number of supermarkets in the Netherlands from 2014 to 2018

Total number of supermarkets in the Netherlands 2014-2018 In an age where brick-and-mortar stores face increasing competition from online stores, the supermarket sector in the Netherlands is still going strong. Between 2014 and 2018, the number of supermarkets in the Netherlands increased year-on-year, from just over 6,000 supermarkets in 2014 to roughly 6,330 in 2018. Together, these supermarkets had a turnover of nearly 36 billion euros in 2017 – a growth of nearly three percent in comparison to the previous year.
 Albert Heijn market leader 

  The food retail market in the Netherlands is divided, with no less than 14 retail chains operating in the country. The leading supermarket chain in the Netherlands in 2018 was Albert Heijn, which had a market share of nearly 35 percent. Its closest competitor, Jumbo, had a market share of just under 19 percent. German discounters Lidl and Aldi together held a roughly similar share. Many smaller (mostly regional) players, such as Jan Linders, Plus and Dirk, made up the rest of the market.

 The most important food retail channel 

  The regular supermarket was the most important purchase channel for food products in the Netherlands in 2018, with a market share of over 60 percent. Hard discount stores (15.2 percent) were also relatively important. By contrast, specialist food retailers had a market share of just 4.4 percent, and the number of bakers, butchers and fruit & vegetable stores in the Netherlands declined almost annually. The expansion of the supermarkets visible in this graph seems therefore to have come at the expense of the specialized food stores.
