Rankings and profiles of the top retailers in The Netherlands

Our database contains 390 Dutch retailers and chains, which are ranked by turnover in each of the 18 sectors. For each retailer, a detailed profile is available.

The Netherlands is the seventh largest economy in Europe and the fifth largest in the euro zone. The country has a reputation for its stable industrial relations, a sizeable trade surplus, and for being the most important transportation hub in the old continent. The key industrial sectors are food processing, chemicals, petroleum refining, and electrical machinery. The financial sector used to be renowned too, but the debt crisis from 2008 had a devastating effect on it, partly due to the exposure of Dutch banks to U.S. mortgage-backed securities. The same year, the government had to nationalize two banks and inject money on three other institutions.

In 2009, the GDP of the country dropped by 3.5%. The government tried to re-boost economic growth with several social measures, but this yield to an increased budget deficit of up to 5.3% of the GDP in 2010. The economy slightly grew for two years, but in 2012 and 2013 it suffered a recession again. The country has managed to maintain, however, the triple-A credit rating.

The Netherlands has a strong and well-organized retail sector. As in most countries, the bulk of the retail activity turns around food. Albert Heijn (Ahold) remains the most important supermarket banner, now closely followed by Jumbo, which has grown exponentially in recent years. German brands Lidl and Aldi come next in line. Blokker Group and Ikea are worth mentioning among the non-food sellers.
