The Bed and Mattress Stores industry has expanded strongly over the five years to 2017. The primary downstream market for industry operators is households, and as the residential market experienced a postrecessionary jump, the customer base for the industry expanded dramatically. Consumers outfitting new homes or moving into existing homes purchased mattresses at an increasing rate during the period. Additionally, the unemployment rate has declined while per capita disposable income has strengthened. Over the next five years, revenue is expected to continue to grow, albeit at a slower rate. While the industry is forecast to benefit from continued growth in per capita disposable income, new household formations and product innovation from upstream mattress manufacturing industries, it will also increasingly contend with online competitors.
This industry sells sleep equipment, including mattresses, box springs, cots, bedding, pillows and waterbeds. The industry excludes wholesale furniture distributors such as department stores or direct non-store retailers, as well as sales of other bedroom furniture. Revenue from sales of sleep sofas, daybeds, futons and other dual-purpose furniture is not included in industry revenue.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
