Global Mattress Industry Transformation over the Decades
The evolution of the bedding industry dates back to thousands of years, and has differed from culture to culture. The mattress component industry has undergone huge changes, as in the olden days, mattresses were meant mainly for the elite, and as time went by, they became easily available for the masses. In the 20th century, the mattress market went through a revolution, as different types of mattress were introduced into the market. During this period, innerspring and memory foam mattresses gained huge popularity, and their demand skyrocketed. Mattresses have come a long way since the most primitive grass-lined beds. But the basic concept has remained unaffected; a cozy, comfortable, and safe spot to sleep and restore one’s energies all through the night.
Nowadays, mattresses have become more about comfort and preference, which has forced mattress manufacturers to innovate as far as material and size are concerned. The increasing preference for spacious living has given more choice than ever before when it comes to styling a bed and mattress; this has sowed the seeds for innovation in mattresses regarding size, type, material used, etc. Innerspring, memory foam, latex, hybrid, air, and water are a few types of mattresses that are widely available across the globe. In 2017, the global mattress market was valued at ~ US$ 37 billion, which is expected to reach ~ US$ 68 billion by the end of 2027.
Ongoing Trends Changing Market Dynamics
Organic Mattresses – A New Product Attracting Large Number of Customers
One of the revolutionary trends seen in the global mattress market is the growing demand for natural and organic mattresses. The demand for organic products has grown significantly over the years; this is also seen in the mattress market, where nowadays, people are inclined towards organic mattresses. Players are now offering different varieties of organic-based mattresses that are made from hypoallergenic materials. Rise in awareness among consumers about the harmful effects of synthetic mattresses has shifted their preference toward organic mattresses. People suffering from breathing problems prefer organic mattresses to avoid unwanted health problems that are caused by synthetic material.
Pesticides and toxic chemicals are not used in organic mattress, which helps in enhancing sleep quality with minimum effect on the skin and hair, and reduces the chances of skin allergies. Among the various natural materials used for manufacturing organic mattresses, latex, wool, and cotton are widely used. With the increasing demand for organic and natural mattresses, a large number of players are making deliberate efforts to use organic materials while manufacturing their products. However, customers who prefer organic mattresses face a few issues regarding their price and limited availability. Also, there are fewer players offering organic mattresses in the market, which can also be a challenge for customers in opting for the right organic mattress.
Mattress Industry Leveraging e-Commerce for Sales
In this technological era, online platforms have largely benefitted the sales of numerous products across the globe. e-Commerce software platforms have also augmented the sales of mattresses across the world. Having said that, a large number of customers still prefer purchasing mattresses offline from retail stores or supermarkets. However, offering a box selling delivery option that delivers mattresses directly to doorsteps has gained huge popularity among mattress players during the last few years. Nevertheless, while making a purchase online, customers can compare various websites, sizes, shapes, and materials, and can choose a mattress that suits their needs the best. Therefore, players are understanding the importance of online sales and are incorporating online marketing strategies to increase their product sales.
The success of online platforms can differ from region to region; for example, Amazon is gaining traction for mattress sales across Asia Pacific, except China. Additionally, manufacturers are also developing online sites to increase the sales of their products. According to our report, the value of the online distribution channel is projected to reach ~ US$ 25 billion by the end of 2027.
