The high-end bed linen market is likely to see an increase in growth as consumers become more conscious of their sleeping habits.

The UK experienced the strongest growth in Europe between 2007 to 2016 with a CAGR of 3.5%.  

Once reserved for specialized shops, the distribution of household linen such as bathroom linen and table linen are now multi-channel.
