2023 Year in Review - Boxed Mattress Wars
The global mattress market in 2023 is estimated at $50 million and continues to grow as an industry. Additionally, the United States is the leading mattress seller in the global market. Customers continue to prioritize the convenience of being able to purchase a mattress online and have it shipped to their homes and in 2023, BedInABox® kept up with the demand by innovating and bringing new, exciting products straight to your door, with no delivery fee. Some mattress companies, on the other hand, have not been able to keep up with the ever-changing industry and customer needs. Here is an annual review of the mattress industry, as well as new and exciting news from the BedInABox® team for the coming year.
Mattress Industry Overview
Every year, more and more shoppers turn to the internet for their purchases. Shopping in brick-and-mortar stores has gone to the wayside, as the internet provides a fast and convenient solution for consumers. In fact, 69 percent of mattress consumers chose not to shop in-person for mattresses and 41 percent cited finding better prices online.
Sustainability and Recycling
The Mattress Recycling Council has recycled more than 12 million mattresses since its founding in 2015. MCR currently has programs in four states: Rhode Island, Oregon, California, and Connecticut. The MRC 2022-2023 Annual Report for Rhode Island collected a total of 79,898 mattresses and recycled 1.5 tons of material alone. In addition to the sustainability efforts our team at BedInABox® maintains, more and more sleepers are considering their own sustainability efforts when purchasing a mattress. Many buyers claim they would pay more for a mattress if the company produced their products with environmentally safe practices. All BedInABox® mattresses continue to meet CertiPUR-US® standards for content, emissions, and durability and are OKEO-TEX® certified.
Fun-Fact: 3 out of 10 U.S. customers want mattresses made in the U.S.A. All BedInABox® mattresses are manufactured at our location in North Carolina, United States of America.
