GfK’s Map of the Month for June shows the non-food retail turnover growth rate in 31 European countries in 2020.
The largest declines in sales of non-food goods were recorded in Italy (-11.6 percent), Spain (-11.0 percent) and Cyprus (-10.8 percent). In the Netherlands, on the other hand, the non-food retail sector as a whole grew significantly (+6.2 percent). Unlike in many European countries, the retail sector here was not closed by the government during the first wave of infection, and online retail saw comparatively strong growth. In Lithuania (+7.7 percent) and Denmark (+6.2 percent), sales of non-food items were also significantly higher in 2020 than in the previous year.
