TURKEY’S MATTRES INDUSTRY IN BRIEF

Turkey’s mattress industry has been going through major changes leaving many less-developed stages behind. Almost all kinds of modern mattresses are either manufactured or represented in Turkey.

The mattress industry in Turkey has reached the sales figures of over 4 million in the local market in 2014. 95 percent of the market has been consisted of spring mattresses and remaining 5 percent of foam mattresses. The size of the market is very close to TL 1 billion and the growth rate is 7%. 20 thousand mattresses are produced daily in Kayseri which is followed by Istanbul and Izmir. There are more than 400 manufacturers in Kayseri. The production capacity of these firms approaches to 2.7 million. Kayseri holds the half of the total production with 2.5 million mattresses. The share of the sector in the foreign market is over 100 million dollars. Kayseri performs more than half of the total export value. The mattresses, which are produced in Kayseri, are exported mainly to France, Germany and The Netherlands and other European countries and the different countries of the Middle East.

Representatives of the industry express that the trends that are seeking healthier, more comfortable sleep environments, play an important role in growth. According to the industry representatives the 3 million of the 4 million mattresses sold, have been sold to the individual consumers, 1 million to the institutions such as hotels, dorms and hospitals.
