There is no doubt that our sleep is the most important thing in our life besides eating healthy, drinking water, and regularly exercising, especially if we want to stay healthy. That said, only one sleepless night is enough to affect our body in a devastating way.
A number of factors can contribute to the quality of our sleep, but there is one crucial thing that can be the difference between us waking up tired and waking up fully energized and revitalized. You already know where we are going with this, right? That’s correct – we are talking about the mattresses we sleep on!
Believe it or not, there is an entire science behind the creation of a single mattress. That explains why the mattress industry is worth more than $31.6 billion. And that’s not all. Experts predict that the industry will surpass $43 billion in the next five years!
This shouldn’t come as a surprise, especially because our sleep is being more and more affected by the modern way of life and stress. That’s why the mattress industry is trying to make us feel as comfortable as possible.
We all have a desperate need for a comfortable place to rest after a long day at work, but choosing the right mattress is not always an easy thing. For example, in general, it takes three to seven hours for a person to find the most suited mattress, and 83% of all customers are somewhat satisfied with their choice.
The reason for this satisfaction level might be hiding in the fact that even though the mattress industry has evolved drastically in the last couple of decades, according to research, 90% of all owned mattresses in the US are traditional innerspring products.
Before we allow you to proceed to this interesting infographic that will tell you everything you need to know about the mattress technology, let us share a fact that you might find interesting!
