Australia’s mattress market developed rapidly due to the growing population in Australia, increasing income levels, and the booming housing market. Other major reasons include the growth of international trade in current times.
The homecare and furniture industries were growing exponentially, but with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a rapid decline in the growth of the mattress market. Australia’s forty percent of all households are adjusting to a decline in household income, with Generation Z (born 1996–2012) and millennials (born 1980–95) the most affected and least confident of a recovery. Shoppers expect to reduce their discretionary spending across most purchase categories, except for grocery and household products. Furthermore, despite the overall downturn in spending, online shopping and digital activity have grown, mainly driven by the consumers that have maintained their household income. There was an initial decline in the demand for bedding products, such as mattresses. However, due to work from home and social distancing measures, more and more people are staying at their homes. The usage of social media and other online channels increased multi-fold. As homes started becoming the new hubs for work and family time, people are spending even non-sleeping hours on their beds. These all-factors lead to the increase in demand for high-quality mattresses.
Australia's mattress industry is still affected by other factors, such as the speed of renovation of existing houses, expansion of the new houses, and innovation in traditional sleep concepts. Consumer groups are expanding in Australia’s mattress market and have the potential for further development. A functional and healthy mattress is highly regarded by consumers in the market due to changing lifestyles and sleep disorders among people. Replacement of bedding is forecasted to lead to the growth of the mattress market in Australia.
