A car rack is a piece of equipment used to transport bicycles, kayaks, skis, snowboards, and other gear securely on the roof or back of a vehicle. It typically consists of two crossbars that mount to pre-existing mounting points on the top or trunk of a vehicle and specialized brackets for holding the gear in place. Car racks are designed to be lightweight and easy to install and can be released when not in use. The significance of car racks is multi-faceted and ranges from practical to environmental. Car racks provide a safe and efficient way of transporting goods by vehicle. They allow the user to carry more items than possible, which helps free up more interior space for passengers. The rising cycling cultures and rapid shift towards fitness and wellness have increased the adoption of car racks. On the other hand, associated maintenance issues and technical complexities may hamper the car rack market growth. Nevertheless, the emerging advanced technology-based products and favorable government initiatives create a lucrative spectrum for the market.
