The article focuses on the decline of specialty sleep mattresses unit shipments in the U.S. in 2006. The International Sleep Products Association (ISPA) reported that the shipments actually dropped to 0.2 percent. This decline is considered to be modest and marks a dramatic change of fortunes for a category that has been the growth star of the industry. Leading specialty sleep producers argued that the numbers reported by ISPA are more accurate indication of what is happening in the category.
