In 2018 the Bedding industry continued struggle amidst consolidation and an increased internet presence. Initial fourth quarter estimates of $3.60 billion put 2018 Q4 sales up 2 percent over 2017 Q4. Compared to the previous third quarter of 2018, sales are down 12.9 percent reflecting Bedding’s seasonality. Preliminary year end sales total $15.51 billion up 2.6 percent over 2017.
Last year Bedding’s quarterly to quarter growth over the previous year continued to be modest. The fourth quarter remains Bedding’s historically lowest volume quarter, totaling $3.6 billion 2018 Q4, up 2 percent from 2017.
Year end Bedding sales are still under review, but preliminary results show 2018 sales of $15.51 billion, a 2.6 percent increase over 2017.
