NEW HABITS: The online shopping boom of DIY products stabilized at the pandemic peak level or back to normal?
- Reinier Zuydgeest Ken Hughes
The pandemic was as strange a time for the home improvement market as it was for any and all. Due to COVID restrictions, physical stores were closed or only open in a limited capacity during lockdowns of various lengths in almost all European countries. Meanwhile, instead of being careful with their spendings in uncertain times, European households actually did more and spent more on home improvement projects than ever before. This resulted in an enormous leap in online purchases of home improvement products, for instance at pure online stores. The share of purchases at pure online stores only grew very slowly with around one percent per year on average until the pandemic boosted that share to a peak in 2021. The question is what would happen with that share of purchases at pure online shops after the pressure of the pandemic and restrictions eased?
