COVID-19 Impact on IKEA

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) company impact report analyses how the pandemic will impact IKEA's performance.

The non-essential nature of IKEA’s business and its low online penetration mean the pandemic will have a significant impact on its 2020 sales.

IKEA’s reaction to the crisis will boost brand image, and this will benefit it in the long term.


– IKEA will be heavily impacted by physical store closures in key markets including Germany, the US, France and the UK.

– Global competitors have an advantage over IKEA; Walmart and Amazon have a far broader product range to lean on.
