Global Organic Mattress Market 2015-2019
About Organic Mattress
Sleep is an important part of daily life, and proper sleep is essential for good health. It is very necessary to have good mattresses to have a nice good-night sleep. Comfort, quality, lifespan, support, and warranty are the main factors that people look for when buying a new mattress. However, since the late 1960s, most mattresses available in the market are made of polyurethane foam, a petroleum-based material. This material emits volatile compounds that can cause skin irritation and respiratory problems. Cotton pesticides and flame-retardant chemicals are also used in this mattress, which can cause cancer and lead to nervous-system disorders. A study conducted in the US found 61 chemicals including carcinogens naphthalene and benzene in several mattresses. This report discusses about organic mattress, and the three major organic mattresses considered in this report are organic innerspring mattress, natural latex mattress, and plant-based memory foam mattress. Worldwide there is an increase in the demand for organic mattress because of the rising awareness of the chemicals used in the regular mattress, which are harmful to human.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Vendors’ expenditure on R&D has increased in order to make organic mattresses more natural and less expensive. Indeed, many organic mattresses labeled as organic are not truly organic. Sometimes only a part of the mattress is made up of organic materials. These partly organic mattress are still harmful, but to a lesser extent. On the other hand, latex mattresses, though natural, are expensive, heavy, and less comfortable than memory foam mattresses. Therefore, vendors are increasing their investment in R&D to introduce innovative mattresses that cater to the needs of various end-users.”
According to the report, mattresses were made of natural materials some 40-50 years ago. However, today the majority of mattresses are made of a variety of petroleum-based chemicals, plastics, foams, and flame retardants. Most of these compounds can evaporate into the air and be inhaled by the person using the bed. This can cause headaches or joint aches, rashes, nosebleeds, eczema, migraines, dizziness, arthritis, nausea, and diseases. People can become ill immediately after buying new mattresses due to exposure to the chemicals present in these mattresses. Many people have become aware of the side effects of traditional mattresses and thus prefer to buy organic mattresses. Since organic mattresses do not have any such harmful chemicals, they are safe. Safety, in fact, is creating demand for organic mattresses, contributing to the growth of the global organic mattress market.
Further, the report states that the high cost of branded latex mattresses leads to their adoption only by affluent customers and hinders many middle-income end-users from purchasing them, which affects the overall revenue generated in the market.
