US Sleep Product Demand to Get Boost from Higher End Purchases


Cleveland, OH, February 16, 2021  — US sleep product demand is forecast to grow 2.6% annually in nominal terms through 2024, according to Sleep Products: United States, a report recently released by Freedonia Focus Reports. Advances will be driven by projected increases in household formation, home sales, and disposable personal income levels. Marketing emphasis on the importance of a good night’s sleep and the potential benefits of a transition from a traditional innerspring mattress – which often cause pressure points and joint pain – will continue to support purchases of high-end memory foam and hybrid mattresses. In addition, demographic factors – such as the aging of the large and relatively affluent baby boomer generation – will stimulate demand for premium sleep products that promise to relieve problems such as chronic back pain. New product introductions – enabled by ongoing advances in sleep product designs and materials – will continue to support tradeup activity. Sales in the nonresidential market will be supported by expected gains in the number of hospital beds in service. In the short term, COVID-19 will continue to spur some demand for new mattresses as consumers experience negative effects to the quality of their sleep while working from home and spending more time in bedrooms.

These and other key insights are featured in Sleep Products: United States. This report forecasts to 2024 US sleep product demand in US dollars at the manufacturer level. Total demand is segmented by product in terms of:
