The U.S. mattress industry in 2015 continued its upward trend in both unit shipments and wholesale dollar values, according to the 2015 Mattress Industry Report of Sales and Trends released in May by the International Sleep Products Association.
U.S. mattress manufacturers shipped nearly 39 million units (mattresses and foundations) in 2015—up 4.5% over 2014 levels. Wholesale revenues exceeded $8 billion, an increase of 6.8% over the prior year, and the average unit selling price increased by 2.2%.
The 2015 report includes a 20-year history of wholesale units, dollars and average unit prices for mattresses and foundations sold in the United States; regional sales data breakouts; mattress size trends; price point analyses; import/export data; household consumption analyses; breakouts for noninnerspring mattresses; contract sales; data on econometric factors that influence the industry; commentary on industry issues; and a world mattress report prepared by the Centre for Industrial Studies (CSIL Milano). This annual report also includes valuable information retailers can use to help their stores remain competitive in today’s dynamic and challenging global marketplace.
The 2015 report is packed with other useful industry information on contract sales, mattress size data and retail price point trends.
