The International Sleep Products Association (ISPA), the trade association representing mattress manufacturers and component suppliers, has released its 2019 Mattress Industry Trends Report. The report publishes current and historical data on the mattress industry’s performance.
The wholesale dollar value of the total mattress market (including U.S.-produced and imported mattresses, stationary foundations and motion foundations) grew by 0.9% in 2019 compared to 2018 (to $10.5 billion), but total units decreased by 1.4% over the same period (to 52.9 million units).
Focusing on U.S.-produced mattresses and stationary foundations, wholesale value increased in 2019 by 1.2% (to $8.4 billion), but units decreased 4.4% (to 37.0 million units). The Average Unit Price (AUP) for all U.S.-produced mattresses and stationary foundations increased by 5.8% in 2019 compared to 2018.
“The U.S. mattress market continued to undergo significant changes in 2019, but finished the year with a strong fourth quarter,” noted ISPA President Ryan Trainer. “Unfortunately, these positive trends came to an abrupt halt as the global COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the economy and the mattress industry beginning Q1 2020. As we release the 2019 report, it’s impossible not to think about how this crisis will affect future mattress shipments and sales.”
The 2019 Mattress Industry Trends Report helps the bedding industry track key business trends and make important commercial and investment decisions. The report also 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; household consumption analyses; contract sales; data on econometric factors that influence the industry; commentary by Jerry Epperson on industry issues and a world mattress report prepared by the Centre of Industrial Studies (CSIL).
