Freedonia Focus Reports: US Foam Mattress demand to outpace Innerspring Types through 2020
US demand for non-innerspring mattresses is projected to climb 4.9 % per annum to USD 2.7 billion in 2020, outpacing the larger innerspring mattresses segment. Gains will represent the continued market shift from innerspring to non-innerspring mattress types
These findings are featured in Sleep Products: United States, a report recently released by Freedonia Focus Reports, a division of The Freedonia Group.
Growth to Slow with Increasing Competition
Manufacturers of specialty mattresses will continue to attract consumers by emphasizing the performance advantages of foam mattresses, with a focus on the cost-benefit ratio of these products. In addition, bed-in-a-box products, which are often available at lower price points than traditional foam mattresses, will make these mattresses accessible to a broader customer base. Suppliers of ultra-high-end all-latex mattresses will continue to benefit from the positioning of their product as “natural”. Meanwhile, interest in beds featuring adjustable firmness will spur sales growth for high-end air mattresses. Despite the generally positive outlook, segment growth will slow from rates seen earlier in the historical period as competition from innerspring mattresses – reinvigorated by the emergence of hybrid models – restrains growth.
