The Netherlands: An introduction to the market

Today, the Netherlands is Sweden’s seventh largest export market and our sixth largest trading partner globally. In Rotterdam, Europe’s largest port is situated and the market place is one of the most digitalised in the world, making the country a popular destination for Swedish companies.

The Netherlands is an interesting testing market for further expansion to countries as the UK and Germany, as the competition is not as fierce in general and the business climate is similar.

The country is among the most connected in the world, 96 percent of the population has internet access in their homes and 90 percent use the Internet on a daily basis. This brings business opportunities for Swedish companies in a range of sectors, for example in IT, telecoms, food, health care, security, offshore, consumer goods as well as energy and environmental technology.
