Tempur-Pedic (R) Now 4th Largest US Bedding Producer
Furniture/Today just released their rankings of the largest US bedding producers, and Tempur-Pedic (R) has moved into the 4th position behind Sealy, Serta and Simmons. Spring Air, the former #4 producer, has moved to #5.
We've watched over the years as Tempur-Pedic (R) has grown from a blip on the bedding radar to now a company that is expected to do over 1 Billion in sales. And this really doesn't gauge the full impact of Tempur-Pedic (R) - now all the leading bedding manufacturers also produce their own memory foam mattresses clones of the Tempur-Pedic (R) models. Its hard to remember that memory foam was almost unknown 10 years ago, but now is standard even in many spring based beds as a comfort layer. Can Tempur-Pedic (R) grow even larger and break into the top three producers - something almost unthinkable a few years ago? It is hard to say, but based on the consistent growth of the memory foam bedding market it seems safe to say that memory foam is no longer just the flavor of the day in the bedding market but a player for the long run. And for good reason - there is just no other bedding material that spreads pressure and conforms to your body like memory foam.
