Chinese mattress imports were down again in September, falling to a market share of less than 1%, industry reports say.

Raymond James, which follows the import figures closely, said Chinese mattress units fell from 7,068 in August to just 3,355 in September.

In September 2018, Chinese mattress units were 558,876, giving China an 87% market share that month.

“On a sequential basis, China mattress imports were down 53% in September 2019 vs. August 2019,” Raymond James wrote in a report on the September import figures.

Tariffs and stiff antidumping duties on Chinese mattresses have combined to slow Chinese imports to a trickle, bedding observers say.
