In terms of electric vehicle type, the convertible roof system market for automotive can be segregated into electric vehicle and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). In an electric vehicle, power electronics takes direct current (DC) from the battery and converts it to alternating current (AC) and sends it to the motor. The electric motor utilizes the AC to create torque (mechanical power) to propel the wheels. HEVs employ two electrical machines; one is a generator connected to the engine and the other is a motor to drive the wheels. Each of these machines are connected to an inverter, and the two inverters run at a higher voltage than the battery.
In terms of geography, the convertible roof system market for automotive can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Europe accounts for a major share of the global convertible roof system market for automotive, due to the high rate of adoption and the weather conditions leading to an increased production of vehicles with convertible roof systems, especially in Germany and the U.K.
Key players operating in the convertible roof system market for automotive include Valmet Automotive, Aisin Seiki, Webasto, and Magna International.
