With the rising number of consumers indulging in biking and cross country road trips, the market is also expected to witness an increase in the demand for bike car racks.

According to Abhay Sinha, a lead research analyst from Technavio, “The sales of bikes also positively impact the bike car rack market. However, consumers are participating in cycling as an adventure or leisure activity in the domestic market, creating the need for carrying these bikes to biking trails or country sides.”

Roof racks are primarily used to boost the cargo capacity in small cars, which have gained prominence in the recent years. Roof racks have become more sophisticated, aerodynamic, and flexible over the period. They can be used to transport a wide variety of things, from general luggage to specific sports gear.

Global ski rack market

Skiing in gaining importance over the period. There are over 66 countries in the world that offer equipped outdoor ski areas covered with snow. Eastern Europe and China are the recent new additions to skiing destinations. Algeria, Cyprus, Greece, India, Iran, Israel, Lebanon, Lesotho, Morocco, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, and Turkey are smaller destinations for skiing.

“APAC is expected to contribute to the spread and visits of skiing owing to the developments of skiing destinations in India and Pakistan. The Alps, which is the highest mountain range system in Europe, is the most visited ski destination globally. However, APAC, as well as Eastern European countries, are also expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period,” says Abhay.
