In this report you will find the results of the first European Contractor Monitor. A study which focusses solely on the mid-sized (5 – 15 fte) and the large (16+ fte) building contractors in 8 important European countries.
It does not only contain data on how contractors organise their project, it also gives you a clear view on their current purchasing channels. The traditional wholesaler is getting not only competition of manufacturers who deliver directly to the contractors, they also have to compete with DIY shops and the pure online channel.
The latter channel has become dominant in the B-to-C business and also some B-to-B sectors. But what is its role in the construction sector, a sector seen by many as a very traditional sector? This report will give you the key insights in the current buying behaviour as well as what can be expected for the (near) future and what drives these changes?
