Extract from this report

  • In terms of the size of the DIY markets, the largest is that of Poland, which accounted for 47.7% in 2011. A further slight increase in Poland’s share is expected by 2014. Bulgaria still covers the smallest part of the CE DIY market – some 4%.
  • In the CE countries except Bulgaria, the VAT rate was increased in the last two years, making DIY products more expensive and, more importantly, negatively impacting on home budgets due to an increase in daily expenses.

 

Market commentary by expert

In all the Central European countries, the situation deteriorated in 2009 after the crisis erupted. Rising unemployment and fading consumer confidence resulted in more cautious shopping decisions and a decrease in demand as consumers began to refrain from buying non-essential goods, including DIY products. Throughout 2011, the condition of all the Central European DIY markets improved. However, not all the markets returned to growth that year.
