Brief Excerpt from Industry Overview Chapter:

Companies in this industry manufacture household, office, and institutional furniture and related products, including mattresses.

The US furniture manufacturing industry includes about 16,000 establishments (single-location companies and units of multi-location companies) with annual revenue of about $70 billion.
