Mattress manufacturers can rest easy because a recovery is on the way. Improving disposable incomes and a recovering housing market will drive sales of new (and more high-end) mattresses. The mattress production process has become leaner and quicker, which will improve profit margins and make US-made mattresses more attractive to foreign buyers due to their speedy delivery times. Input prices will continue to increase, but will be less volatile, giving manufacturers ample time to prepare for any fluctuations.
The Mattress Manufacturing industry produces mattresses and bases for retailers, wholesalers, hospitals, hotels and the export markets. The industry produces innerspring, box spring and non-innerspring mattresses. Non-innerspring mattresses include waterbeds and beds made from rubber and latex.
