Leading consumer electronics retailers ranked by turnover in Europe 2018

Consumer electronics is a highly competitive industry in Europe, where a number of both locally and internationally recognized brands are in a tight race for increased sales and presence. As of 2018, Germany’s most preferred electronics retailers Media Markt was the leader in this market, with a turnover of 25 billion euros generated in that year. Apart from Media Markt and Saturn, other German electronics retailers such as Electronic Partner and Conrad found themselves a place in the European market, although with less impressive financial results.

German impact in electronics industry

German retailers’ imprint in the electronics industry is not limited to Europe. In 2017, Germany’s consumer electronics brands carried the country ahead of several other world markets. Worldwide, the market is dominated by the US, but Germany maintains a solid position as the runner-up.

Europe strides confidently

Since 2016, sales revenues of consumer electronics have been on the rise, not only in Europe, but also in the rest of the world. While the number one position in consumer electronics sales is now a draw between the US and China, from 2016 to 2018, Europe emerged as the market to have made a significant jump of around 24 billion US dollars.
