New Market Research Report: Mixed Retailers in Spain

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Apr 10 2015

After negative current value growth rates peaked in mixed retailers during 2012, the category recorded substantial value declines during 2014 as it was hit badly by the adverse economic situation in Spain. Nevertheless, this negative growth trend came to an end in 2014 as mixed retailers increased in current value by 2% to reach €10.1 billion. Two important factors were behind this encouraging return to positive growth for the channel. On the one hand, El Corte Inglés, the dominant retailer in the channel with 83% of total mixed retailers value sales in 2014, recovered strongly from its recent declines, recording strong results during the Christmas season and enjoying further success with its summer sales. On the other hand, the positive growth recorded in the channel during 2014 can also be attributed to a lesser extent to the arrival into the channel of the US-based retailer Costco, which opened the first warehouse clubs outlet in Spain in May.
