The European home improvement market is an attractive sector, worth £235 billion (1) across a customer base of 320 million (1) homes. Kingfisher currently has a 5% (1) share of this large, fragmented market, meaning there is plenty of scope for growth.

To find out more about the markets in which we operate we surveyed over 15,000 people across eight countries in Europe about the way they view their homes and their attitudes to home improvement. Find out more in our European Home Report.
