on average what is the number of pillows sold and sales in the united states annually?
Hello, Thank you for using this service. I wish to introduce myself. I am a Research Librarian with 20+ years of experience.

Quite an interesting question as mattress sales and statistics are plenty but pillow sales are few.

Here is information from The New York Times that has report from the trade publication "Home Textiles Today". In 2010 Americans spent $740 million on sleeping pillows and the number has increased in the past few years after that.

The trade publication also has a more detailed report for sale on the pillow industry:
