Amstelveen, May 12th, 2020.
In the first quarter of 2020, the Dutch market for technical consumer goods shows growth compared to the same period last year. This growth is mainly driven by IT, Major -and Small Domestic Appliances. In particular, the coronavirus outbreak in The Netherlands since the end of February, has made a significant contribution to this growth! For example, we see double digit growth figures within a large number of product groups such as, freezers, hair clippers, digital thermometers, blood pressure monitors, computer monitors, notebooks, routers, webcams and keyboards.
