Abstract [en]

We investigate the effects of IKEA entry in three Swedish municipalities, finding that revenues for incumbent retailers located 1 km from the new IKEA store experienced a 7% increase due to positive spillover. The effect was insignificant for retailers located in city centres or more than 1 km from IKEA. Moreover, the positive agglomeration effects only dominate the negative competition effects for stores that sell complementary products, while same-market retailers located between 2 and 5 km from the new IKEA store experienced revenue loss due to IKEA entry. In contrast to retail revenues, the effects on employment were statistically insignificant.

Abstract [en]

The effects of a new IKEA store on retail revenues, employment and inflow of purchasing power in the entry municipalities as well as in neighbouring municipalities were investigated using data from 2000–11. A propensity score-matching method was used to find non-IKEA entry municipalities that were as similar as possible to the entry municipalities based on the situation before entry. The results indicate that IKEA entry increased entry municipality durable goods revenues by about 20% and employment by about 17%. Only small and, in most cases, statistically insignificant effects were found in neighbouring municipalities.

Abstract [sv]

Statistiska Centralbyrån har i en rapport kritiserat användandet av webbpaneler för att samla in data. Den huvudsakliga kritiken går ut på att webbpaneler oftast är självrekryterande och därmed, till skillnad från telefonundersökningar, inte baserade på ett sannolikhetsurval. Ingen direkt jämförelse görs dock mellan de olika undersökningsmetodikerna. Syftet med denna rapport är därför att genomföra en litteraturgenomgång i vetenskapliga tidskrifter under de senaste tio åren för att se om slutsatsen har ett vetenskapligt stöd. Resultaten visar att ickesannolikhetsbaserade i de flesta fall har lett till mer tillförlitliga resultat än traditionella telefonundersökningar. Detta kan troligen förklaras av att de senare har problem med stora icke-slumpmässiga bortfall, samt mätfel i samband med intervjusituationen. Slutligen konstateras att det finns ett starkt vetenskapligt stöd för att webbpaneler baserade på ett sannolikhetsurval är att föredra framför telefonundersökningar.

Abstract [en]

IKEA is one of the world’s largest retailers, but little is known about how IKEA impact incumbent retailers when deciding to enter a local market. Previous studies on the effects of big-box entry on surrounding retailers have also generated inconclusive results, and mainly been focused towards entry of Wal-Mart in the United States. We contribute to this literature by investigating the effects of IKEA entry on revenues and employment for incumbent retail firms in three Swedish municipalities during 2000-2010. Our results indicate that a new IKEA store increases average revenues for incumbent retailers within the entry municipality by 11%, but also that the effect is highly heterogeneous within the municipality. Retailers that were located up to 1 km from IKEA experienced a 26% increase in revenues when IKEA entered the municipality. However, the positive spillover effect of a new IKEA store on retail revenues diminished with the distance to IKEA, and turned insignificant for retailers in the city centers and those that were located 5-10 km from IKEA. The effects on employment were much less pronounced, and in most cases statistically insignificant.
