About The 20 Largest Mattress Manufacturers

Updated February 9th, 2019

Throughout this website, it is often mentioned to avoid "major" mattress manufacturers. This is primarily due to a clear lack of transparency about the quality and specifications of the materials used in their mattresses vs. smaller independent manufacturers that make similar mattresses with the same or better quality, are transparent about their materials and designs and often times sell for better prices. This article will give you a better idea of who the largest 20 manufacturers are, which manufacturers to avoid, and some who are possibilities in terms of their transparency, quality, and relative value.

The list, which presents estimates developed by Furniture Today through a review of materials sent to the publication and a survey of bedding producers and suppliers.

It is very important to note that through merger/acquisition consolidation, Serta Simmons Holdings LLC owns Serta and Simmons; similarly Tempur-Sealy International, Inc. owns Sealy and Tempur-Pedic. These two mega-corporations represent 65.6% of mattress sales for the entire industry. Furniture Today’s top 20 companies represent 90.8% of all bedding sales in 2017.

The “Other producers (9.1%)” consists of hundreds of smaller manufacturers, most of who lack a massive advertising budget, and sometimes are only available locally or regionally.

One of the goals of this website is to help consumers identify and find the manufacturers who are open and transparent about the materials in their mattresses and are focused on making and selling higher quality and value mattresses.


Beyond these top 20 manufacturers, there are hundreds of smaller local or regional manufacturers or in some cases national online brands, which are well worth considering if they are fully transparent about the materials they use in their mattresses. Many of these independent manufacturers provide better quality and value for consumers.

Most importantly, knowing the specific details of the materials and components in a mattress and making "mattress to mattress" comparisons is the only way to make meaningful comparisons. Blind purchases in which you know little to nothing about what’s inside the mattress should always be avoided regardless of which manufacturer makes the mattress.

Spending your valuable time with more transparent manufacturers, or with retailers who will provide you, the needed information will save you a great deal of time and frustration. Transparent bedding companies are more deserving of your time and effort because they are saying, Consumers deserve to know what they are buying".
