The International Sleep Products Association’s Statistics Committee has released the second forecast for the U.S. mattress market for 2018. This forecast covers calendar years 2018 through 2020.
Based in part on an economic analysis prepared by the University of Michigan, and input from the committee, the consensus view is that both the quantity and value of mattress shipments will decline in 2018 before modest growth begins in 2019 and 2020. For 2018, the revised forecast shows a 2.0% reduction in the value of mattress shipments and a 4.0% decrease in units shipped. For 2019, the forecast anticipates a 4.0% increase in the value of mattress shipments and a 2.0% increase in units shipped.
The forecast also contains timely economic and market analyses provided by Jerry Epperson, of Mann, Armistead & Epperson, Ltd., and Ashraf Abdul Mohsen of Association Research Inc.
