Responding to important shifts in the bedding industry, The International Sleep Products Association (ISPA), an association serving mattress manufacturers and suppliers, recently released its 2017 Mattress Industry Trends Report. In an effort to provide market intelligence essential to industry success, the ISPA report includes comprehensive shipment and sales data covering the industry’s current and historical trends.
“ISPA has made several important improvements in the quality and depth of the data presented in this year’s report,” noted ISPA President Ryan Trainer. “First, ISPA has revised our sampling factors—as we do every five years—to reflect the current bedding market. The biggest change since our last update in 2011 is the rapid growth in the boxed bedding segment. We are happy to announce that our 2016 and 2017 U.S. shipments data includes this important and growing segment.
“Second, we have added two new data points for motion foundations, capturing both the full size of the market for this product as well imports. Finally, mattress imports have grown swiftly. So that our readers can better analyze all segments that make up U.S. demand for bedding, this year’s report groups trends in U.S. mattress and stationary foundation shipments, motion foundation sales and imports together in the first three charts,” said Trainer.
In addition to these improvements, the 2017 report features in-depth sales information that ISPA members, mattress retailers and those in the financial sector can use to track key business trends and make important commercial and investment decisions.
Capturing a 20-year history of wholesale units, dollars and average unit prices for mattresses and foundations sold in the United States the report also includes:
- regional sales data
- mattress-size trend
- price point data
- household consumption information
- contract sales
- data on econometric factors that influence the industry
- expert commentary on industry issues
- a world mattress report prepared by the Italian firm of Centre for Industrial Studies (CSIL)
“For over 100 years, ISPA has been both the source for industry statistics, but has worked to improve the data we publish. We welcome your feedback on our improvements to this year’s report,” said Trainer.
The Mattress Industry Trends Report is part of ISPA’s statistical program. The association also releases two additional reports: Bedding Market Quarterly which reports on mattress and foundation shipments and the semi-annual Mattress Industry Forecast, a report predicting industry shipments.
