A car rack refers to an automotive stand or carrier fitted over the roof of the vehicle to increase luggage capacity. It consists of a mount and multiple rails and pillars for supporting the rack frame and evenly distributing the weight of the luggage to prevent any damage to the roof. The racks are commonly manufactured using lightweight materials, such as aluminum alloy, composite plastic and steel. Luggage or goods are placed on the rack to provide maximum space to the passengers and enhanced comfort while traveling. Traditionally, they were mounted permanently on the roofs of the vehicle; however, the modern variants can be attached and detached using hooks and joints for enhanced flexibility, minimal maintenance and convenience.
Car Rack Market Trends:
The growing automotive industry represents one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Furthermore, the widespread adoption of ski and watersport carriers for outdoor and recreational activities are also driving the market growth. With the rising young population and growing preference for adventure sports, there is an increasing preference for durable and aesthetically appealing car racks for additional luggage space. This, along with various product innovations, such as the development of fiberglass car racks that offer enhanced durability, is contributing to the market growth. In comparison to bias-ply and steel-reinforced racks, fiberglass versions provide greater resistance to damage, minimal reinforcement costs and overall improved performance over long-distance driving. Other factors, including rising investments in the tourism sector, along with rapid urbanization and increasing expenditure capacities of the masses, are anticipated to drive the market further.
