Automotive Roof Systems - Global Sector Overview and Forecast to 2035 (Q1 2021 Update)

Since Mercedes-Benz offered the first car sunroof in 1932, the ways in which automakers have sought to let the sunshine into the cabin have become increasingly complex. Solid roof modules without additional integrated features seem to have a cost disadvantage versus simple sheet-metal roof-skin structures.

A trend towards roof modules with integrated opening systems (multi-panel) can be seen particularly because the modular technology supports the trend towards top-loading assembly processes on the car manufacturer’s assembly line. This provides the potential for utilisation of various roof options on one body interface.

Meanwhile, the expanding convertible segment is crossing all vehicle segments.It is no longer a preserve of the luxury class.

Roof makers say that growing consumer acceptance as well as all-weather convertible top concepts such as retractable hardtops will contribute to the market’s expansion. While electrically operated convertible roof systems are industry standard for luxury vehicles, roof makers are continuously working toward developing smaller, lighter and cheaper systems.

As the carmakers are currently redefining themselves, future growth is expected.OEMs will keep using convertible technologies to distinguish themselves and draw customers into showrooms
