Bouncing back: Industry revenue has grown despite increasing import penetration

The Mattress Manufacturing industry's performance has been highly volatile over the past five years. Competition from low-cost imports has partly contained industry revenue growth, though the steady upward trend in Australia's population, general economic growth and the demand for beds for hotel guests and hospital patients have boosted industry revenue growth. Strong growth in domestic demand for mattresses and bedding products has also supported the industry's performance. Industry revenue is expected to increase at an annualised 2.7% over the five years through 2017-18, to $659.9 million.Industry revenue is anticipated to decline by 4.5% in 2017-18, reflecting the deteriorating residential building construction demand more.
