Travel pillows are essentially used during the journey period that helps to provide a relaxing experience to the traveller. Manufacturers are increasingly focusing on producing pillows that contain sustainable natural ingredients to minimize energy consumption during the pillow production process as well as to improve their disposable nature. This creates a lucrative opportunity for sustainable travel pillow products. For instance, in April 2020, My Green Mattress, a top company in organic and sustainable sleep products launched organic pillows, waterproof protectors, and plush toppers.  

Nowadays, manufacturers are widely providing customized bed products to the various travel agencies which have widened the usage of travel pillows and also have helped the agencies to grow their business. Additionally, advancements in the pillow design including therapeutic effects, as well as anti-static, cooling, and anti-bacterial features are likely to shape the future demand for the overall travel pillow market.

Increasing necessities for comfortable and luxurious mobility vehicles has given rise to the demand for travel pillows. Additionally, slim back designs, easy inflate or deflate pillow capacity, and its lightweight nature & portability are some of the important properties of the travel pillow which attract the people to purchase these products. Moreover, the growing standards of livings of the global population are projected to aid in market growth. Also, government support related to the production of a variety of textile products is likely to fuel the overall travel pillow market. According to U.S. International Trade Commission, in 2018, an initiative, ‘Advanced Functional Fabrics of America (AFFOA)’ was taken by the government of the United States which helped the associated industry organizations to incorporate different features in the production of textiles products, which thereby provide ease in the pillow production efficiency and support the market growth.   

Furthermore, a growing number of bedding product shops has also boosted the supply of different sized and coloured travel pillows. The rising tourism and travel sector has given rise to the availability of various kinds of transportation facilities and thereby, flourishes the usage of these products. Moreover, growing trends of transport vehicle decoration have given rise to the high demand for the newer style travel pillows.

However, uncertain weather conditions such as temperature rise and heavy rain are anticipated to create disruptions in raw material supply and thereby expected to limit the market growth.
