The Bedding Market Quarterly reports U.S. sales activity (including Puerto Rico) for 13 U.S. mattress producers. The participating companies accounted for 63.5% of the mattress units shipped and 74.1% of the wholesale market revenue for mattresses sold in 2017. The experience of these participants as a group does not necessarily reflect those of the entire mattress manufacturing industry. In addition, comparisons of Bedding Market Quarterly results for different time periods can be affected by a number of factors, including differences in the number of workdays and holiday promotions in a given quarter, weather conditions, etc.
