This is the second year of the new style European Rankings. The emphasis, as ever, is on the numbers and we provide a three year record of the main statistics (in so far as they are available) with a summary table of the 350 leading retailers in Europe as well where those retailers operate and what sectors they operate in. The cut off point for inclusion is sales of a little over €400 million and it is our longer term intention to increase the scope of the report. Inclusion at the lower end is impacted by currency changes. The strength of sterling over the last year has increased the UK representation and will do so more when we get to the 2016 edition.

REPORT SCOPE
This report provides a snapshot of the leading retailers in Europe, ranked by 2014 revenues. We cover the Top 350 European retailers and include country and sector sections, which detail those of the top 350 companies that are present in those markets. In the text we cover the main trends by country and sector and the leading retailers in each country and sector as well. The European Retail Rankings is one of a series of Mintel reports looking at the retail sector across Europe. Its companion, the UK Retail Rankings provides a comprehensive overview of UK retailers with a cut-off point of around €7.5 million (£6 million). These reports draw on Mintel’s Retail Interactive database of leading European retailers: all the information in the European Retail Rankings is contained in the database, which is updated on a regular basis.
