Obi, market leader in Germany and number three in the European DIY trade, increased its sales by around EUR 500 mio to an overall EUR 8.2 bn last year. This is an increase of more than 6.3 per cent. At the same time, the number of locations stayed exactly the same at 668 and the overall retail space roughly the same.

These figures have been gathered by the editorial team of the specialist journal diy for its annual Statistik Baumarkt + Garten D-A-CH 2020 which will be released in German in May. The results are also fed into Statistics Home Improvement Europe which is published in English and brought out by the editorial team of DIY International in summer. More information and orders:
