ISPA: Mattress Wholesale Revenue up 8.7% in 2012
By Home Furnishings Business in Mattresses on May 9, 2013
Wholesale mattress revenue rose 8.7 percent in 2012, according to the International Sleep Products Association.
That figure, which represented a $6.8 billion increase, is from the trade association's 2012 Mattress Industry Report of Sales and Trends, released yesterday.
Along with the wholesale revenue increase, ISPA said mattress unit shipments rose to nearly 35.5 million last year, up 3.6 percent from 2011.
To help put these figures into perspective, the report separately displays data for inner-spring and non-innerspring mattresses and foundations, and includes unit, wholesale revenue and average unit price data for the last 20 years.
The report also contains information on U.S. mattress sales by region, contract sales, product size data, as well as price point trends, import/export figures and general econometric data that influence mattress sales. In addition to U.S. market data, the report includes global mattress industry information prepared by the Centre of Industrial Studies; and provides commentary by industry veterans Jerry Epperson and Bill Creekmuir.
ISPA members receive the annual report and the associations other statistical products (the monthly ISPA Bedding Barometer and its bi-annual market forecast) free of charge. This year, ISPA also has made the report and other statistical products available for purchase by the mattress retail community.
Beyond the mattress manufacturers and component suppliers that belong to ISPA, our statistical products are also relevant to mattress retailers, said ISPA President Ryan Trainer. The 2012 Mattress Industry Report of Sales and Trends contains current and historical information that retailers can use as they manage their businesses and respond to industry trends.
