Home improvement decreased by 2% in 2012 to reach EUR4,167 million. Home improvement sales decreased in the period as the recession squeezed household incomes. As a result consumers became more price sensitive, helping supermarkets, hypermarkets and discounters as well as furniture and furnishing stores to gain category share from DIY, home improvement and garden centres. This is because many of the latter are relatively small scale and vulnerable to price competition.
