The Spanish trade in DIY products made 2.8 per cent less sales than in the same period last year in the third quarter. One year ago, the industry recorded extraordinarily high sales due to the fact that the retail trade was allowed to open again after lockdown. This has been pointed out by the Spanish trade association AECOC, which still sees the overall industry on a good course. Because compared to the third quarter in 2019, sales have risen by 17.4 per cent. And in the period from January to September 2021, there has also been an increase of 26.4 per cent.

The fact that large-scale DIY stores were more strongly affected by the 2020 closures than the traditional specialist trade, meaning that the catch-up effect has varied widely, is also reflected in the statistics for the third quarter of 2021. Because while the specialist trade made 1.83 per cent more sales from July to September than in the third quarter of 2020, there was a decline of 3.63 per cent for the DIY stores.
