The bedding industry will record respectable unit growth this year but stronger growth in the wholesale value of bedding shipments, according to Furniture/Today's Consensus Bedding Forecast.
Furniture/Today compiles its bedding forecast by asking CEOs and presidents of bedding producers to share their confidential unit and dollar predictions. Then it weights those predictions based on the market share enjoyed by the respondents, and averages the figures to arrive at its forecast numbers.
Companies that provided forecasts or insights on business conditions this year were Serta, Sealy, Simmons, Tempur-Pedic, King Koil, Therapedic, Englander, Restonic, Kingsdown, Spring Air, E.S. Kluft, Reverie, OMI, Naturepedic, Dormeo N.A., Boyd Specialty Sleep, Gold Bond, Paramount Sleep, Enso Sleep, Pure LatexBliss and Shifman Mattress.
