Sector Overview
Home Depot has retained its position as the largest home improvement
retailer despite a drop in sales.
Home Depot’s retail banner sales have fallen
significantly since 2007 as a result of the
continued weakness in the US housing
market. However, in 2010, the retailer
achieved the first positive sales growth since
2006. Also, Lowe’s reported 2010
comparable store sales increased 1.3% –
being the first such increase since 2005.
Home Depot, Lowe’s and Kingfisher saw
their net profits decline from 2007 to 2008.
However, Home Depot and Kingfisher are
on the rebound since 2008, while Lowe’s
net profit has not recovered yet.
