ISPA UPDATES QUARTERLY BEDDING MARKET DATA
New Data Included in Quarterly Report Reflecting Both U.S. and Imported Mattresses and Stationary Foundations
(Alexandria, VA) – The International Sleep Products Association (ISPA) announces important changes to its quarterly bedding market data. Historically, the Bedding Market Quarterly (BMQ) separately reported U.S.-produced bedding and imports. Beginning with 2019 first quarter data, the BMQ merges this information to estimate the value of the full U.S. wholesale market for mattresses, stationary foundations (including foldable foundations) and motion foundations that are both produced in the United States and imported from foreign countries.
In addition, this report will continue to provide U.S.-produced regional market data, price point analysis, product-specific imports, as well as an analysis of market developments prepared by a guest columnist.
“ISPA is dedicated to continually enhancing the services we provide our members.” noted ISPA President Ryan Trainer. “The improvements we are announcing today will help members and our data subscribers make better informed strategic decisions in managing their businesses. Stay tuned for similar changes to ISPA’s annual Mattress Industry Trends Report.”
