The roof box segment is expected to witness a growth rate of over 7% during the forecast period.
Roof boxes are built and designed with a variety of materials, features, and sizes.
In September 2018, Thule Group officially unveiled Thule Vector and Thule Force XT cargo boxes at Automechanika. Roof boxes are ideal for families on vacation, as they can carry luggage, outdoor gear, and bulky loads. The company also offers Thule Motion XT, which comes in four sizes, ranging from 300 liter to 610 liter. It has smart features, like SlideLock System, with separate locking and opening functions, and is easy to mount, due to the pre-installed PowerClick quick-mount system.
Some people prefer roof-top cargo luggage travel bag instead of boxes, due to its soft covers that allow travelers to carry objects, which may be oddly shaped and not fit under the hardcover cargo carriers. Due to the use of vinyl materials, roof-top cargo luggage travel bags are waterproof and can be folded flat when not in use, for simpler storage. However, these bags are not ideal for sharp or delicate objects.
The price of these bags varies from USD 50 to USD 200, whereas roof boxes cost more than USD 300, depending on the dimension and load carrying capacity.
Thule Group, Yakima, Inno Advanced Car Racks (Car Mate Mfg Co. Ltd), and Malone Auto Racks offer roof boxes, globally. Inno Advanced Car Racks offers cargo boxes in four series, namely, Phantom Series, Wedge Series, Shadow Series, and Ridge Series.
