The Emergence of The Ideal Mattress Manufacturer

June 18, 2024 | Written by SleepyCat Team

The Mattress Industry has witnessed a monumental change in the last 7 years. The Indian market is home to mattress manufacturers that help you sleep better than ever. SleepyCat is amongst the pioneers of the revolutionized mattress industry today. Let’s dive into breaking down how Indians were sleeping wrong and making the right choices to avoid making the same mistakes.

The dominance of Gaddawalas

Whenever we talk about mattresses in India, the word that pops into our head is gaddas. This is because the mattress market was heavily dominated by ‘Gaddawallas’. Their easy availability and convenience became the biggest reason for their success. They were available near consumers at an affordable and negotiable price. The major problem with the local bed mattress, popularly known as the ‘Gadda’ is that they’re made of low-quality material. Gaddawalas widely use the likes of cotton, wool, and coir to make our mattresses.

Pros of Gaddawalas

  • Easy availability
  • Convenient delivery
  • Highly affordable
  • Negotiable pricing

Cons of Gaddawalas

  • Low-quality raw materials
  • Less durable
  • Uncomfortable and lack support
  • Not backed by science and research

The Dawn of the Retail Outlets

The biggest strength of gaddawalas was their accessibility. However the same became their biggest downside. With globalization, the Indian consumer started becoming more brand-conscious and was looking for better options. That is when the mattress industry started moving towards the organized sector and retail outlets opened. Some of them were run by brands that are known as legacy brands today. This gave tough competition to Gaddawalas and the mattress industry saw the emergence of brands like Kurl-On, Springwel, Sleepwell, SpringTek, and many more. These outlets started attracting people who wanted a branded mattress and carved out a different segment of customers who wanted to make a conscious purchase from a trustworthy brand. Since these brands were a byproduct of growing capitalism, they brought in heaps of choices. The consumer was often left confused and ended up with the wrong product.

Pros of Gaddawalas

  • Good quality materials
  • Durable
  • Comfortable

Cons of Gaddawalas

  • Expensive 
  • Non-negotiable pricing
  • Inconvenient delivery
  • Confusing due to too many options

Growth of the online mattress industry

After the e-commerce boom, many online brands started to emerge. These brands now identified a problem that even the retail failed to solve. In the digital age, consumers prefer convenience more than anything. SleepyCat was the first Indian brand to offer doorstep delivery of mattresses in a bag all over India.  Many other brands followed. Now mattresses are made with high-quality materials selected after research to give you a perfect balance of support and comfort

Pros of New Age mattress brands

  • High quality
  • Durable
  • Competitive pricing
  • Convenient delivery

Cons of New Age mattress brands

  • Difficult to understand for consumers
  • Lack in-person guidance
  • Too many unnecessary options
