  Major revenue segment in a slowing and highly competitive segment

92% of Sealy sales are generated from the slowing and highly-competitive innerspring mattress segment. Tempur-pedic International (TPX) and Select Comfort (SCSS) may be able to fend their market share in the specialty bedding segment.
