The French supermarket chain Carrefour has achieved very positive results in its net sales in all its URLs. However, the carrefour.fr website has managed to double them and the forecasts for 2021 are very positive.
Carrefour It is one of the most important retailers in Europe and one of the largest food and everyday products chains in the world. Sales in 2019 were around $ 83 billion, making it close to other world-renowned companies like Walmart and Tesco.
Its online distribution channel, as well as many other retailers, this year has managed to grow more than expected. The widespread increase in demand for e-commerce offers brought with it an unprecedented increase in net sales of the various Carrefour URLs. Carrefour’s three main URLs are .fr, .es and .com.br
The 3 main Carrefour URLs have been showing constant growth since 2018, even having a range of more than two digits. However, based on ecommerceDB.com’s current net sales forecast, 2020 far exceeded previous growth rates. Carrefour’s “start” URL carrefour.fr registered a year-on-year increase of an incredible 93% in 2020, according to estimates. In other words, Carrefour’s regional flagship was able to double its net sales in just one year to a total of 842.7 million euros.
carrefour.es has nothing to envy, it has generated net sales of 668.4 million euros in 2020, which means that the Spanish URL Carrefour more than tripled its year-on-year growth rate, going from 21% in 2019 to 64% in 2020.
Finally there is carrefour.com.br, which apparently noticed the weakest corona effect, but the year-on-year growth rate has been the highest (67%) of the 3 URLs, and the jump to 88% in 2020 is not that high as for the other two stores.
In ecommerceDB has predicted that “the upward trend in net sales is very likely to continue for Carrefour’s larger online presences, although growth rates will be lower. However, considering that the COVID-19 pandemic is far from over, it is still difficult to make definitive statements.“
