About the sector

Consumer & Retail

With over 80 m inhabitants, Germany is the largest consumer market in Europe. In addition, the German population has above-average purchasing power, which fuels the growth of the industry. The sector is also considered particularly crisis-proof, as demand for consumer goods is largely independent of the economic cycle.
