Furniture/Today's exclusive Top 15 U.S. Bedding Producers report ranks mattress producers by their 2015 U.S. wholesale bedding shipments.
Furniture/Today uses public and private information to develop the wholesale shipment figures in its report of the Top 15 U.S. Bedding Producers.
The publication begins the process by sending a survey to some two dozen bedding producers, asking them to supply evidence of audited and accountant-verified figures for their 2015 bedding shipments. Only one privately held bedding producer — Serta — met that requirement this year.
Select Comfort, a publicly held company, provided shipment figures to Furniture/Today. All of the other producers on the list are ranked on the basis of a Furniture/Today survey of bedding producers and suppliers that is used to develop Furniture/Today market research estimates.
In the absence of audited and accountant-verified shipment figures, or figures from publicly held companies, Furniture/Today uses its industry survey to establish its estimates.
This listing is by no means comprehensive and does not represent the entire industry. More than the 15 bedding producers ranked are vital companies within the industry. Furniture/Today chooses not to include some companies due to lack of verification of shipment figures.
Executive Editor David Perry and Dana French, director of research, collected the figures presented in this report, developed the estimates and did the market analysis. The figure for the size of the U.S. wholesale mattress industry — just over $8 billion — is from the International Sleep Products Assn.
