Executive Summary

Feb 2019
Strongest performance in a decade, driven by grocery and non-store retailing

Retailing in the Netherlands recorded the strongest performance in a decade in 2018, sustained by a booming national economy reaching its peak. As such, retail sales expanded significantly for the third successive year in 2018.

Dutch economy continues to boom, with most indicators highly positive

The country’s economy continued on the growth path established in 2016 and, especially, 2017. GDP growth in 2018 remained strong, albeit lower than in 2017, which indicated that the peak in the current business cycle might already have been reached.

Internet retailing continues to see renewed rapid expansion

Internet retailing continued to see renewed rapid expansion in 2018, following similarly strong performances in 2016 and 2017. This may be surprising considering that internet retailing was already at a comparatively advanced stage in categories such as apparel and footwear, consumer electronics, consumer appliances, and toys and games.

Number of outlets declines and selling space shrinks as internet retailing advances

The rapid expansion in internet retailing had a notable impact on store retailing, as the number of outlets fell also in 2018, despite a booming economy. Similarly, the amount of selling space dedicated to retailing stagnated or slightly declined.

Retailing expected to see further growth, albeit at more moderate levels

Retailing in the Netherlands is expected to witness further growth over the forecast period, against the backdrop of a generally favourable macroeconomic outlook. With the fundamentals of the Dutch economy set to remain strong, this should keep consumer spending at relatively high levels.
