The Home Depot Inc in Retailing

April 2012

Home Depot is heavily reliant on a depressed US housing market, seeing market share declines in the US and Canada and closing stores in China. As such, the future could appear bleak for the company. However, value sales growth has started to return, online sales are blossoming and a tentative recovery in US housing could be underway. Against this increasingly positive backdrop, Euromonitor international assesses the outlook for Home Depot in the short to medium term.
