ISPA: Mattress Industry to Continue to Grow
March 30, 2012,
ALEXANDRIA, Va.-Mattress shipments will continue their current growth pattern through 2012 and 2013, according to the latest forecast for the industry from the International Sleep Products Association.
In dollars, according to ISPA's Statistics Committee, mattress shipments this year should rise 7.2 percent, while in units the increase should come to 3.5 percent. For 2013, the value of mattress shipments is expected to increase by 6.6 percent, while unit shipments are projected for a 3.4 percent rise.
In addition, the housing market appears to be back on an upswing, although this sector is still beset by the impact of "underwater" mortgages (in which the balance on a mortgage is greater than the value of the home), ISPA said.
