The 2012 Mattress Industry Report of Sales and Trends is now available electronically to ISPA members on the ISPA website. In 2012, the mattress industry continued its upward trend in both unit shipments and wholesale dollar value. US mattress producers shipped nearly 35.5 million units and wholesale revenues grew to over $6.8 billion, reflecting increases over 2011 levels of 3.6% and 8.7%, respectively. Average Unit Prices (AUP) for mattresses and foundations increased by 5.0%.
The 2012 report is packed with other useful industry information on contract sales, imports and exports of mattresses, mattress size data and retail price point trends. This report also contains information on mattress sales activity in 60 other countries compiled by CSIL Milano and a market analysis by Jerry Epperson (of Mann, Armistead & Epperson, Ltd.). New this year, the report also includes commentary from long-time home furnishings executive Bill Creekmuir.
