The U.S. mattress industry is projected to enjoy healthy increases in both units shipped and the value of those shipments for 2016 and 2017, according to a new forecast from the International Sleep Products Association.
The forecast, released in May, projects that the number of mattresses and foundations shipped will rise by 3.5% and the wholesale dollar value of those shipments will increase 1.5% in 2016 over 2015 figures.
For 2017, the forecast predicts a 4% increase in units shipped and a 6.5% increase in the value of mattress shipments.
The forecast for the U.S. bedding industry generally is issued twice a year and is produced by ISPA’s Forecast Panel using an econometric model of the mattress industry linked with the larger home furnishings market and national economy.
