Retail in Netherlands - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Country Impact


The Coronavirus (COVID-19) country report analyses how the pandemic will impact retail spend in Netherlands.

Total retail sales in the Netherlands are forecast to decline by 2.9% in 2020, against the pre-COVID forecast of 2.8% growth, due to economic uncertainty and lower consumer confidence, despite favorable government initiatives to support businesses.

While demand for essentials is increasing rapidly as consumers are encouraged to stay at home, the future for other non-essential sectors remains bleak with consumers spending significantly less on these products

  • The Netherlands is better placed to fight the impact of the pandemic with retail sales forecast to register strong growth of 5.6% in 2021, as life returns to normal and consumer spending recovers, partially offsetting the decline in 2020.
  • Coronavirus to take ‎€7.4bn from retail spend in 2020
