The Challenges

The proportion of pickup trucks in the global auto market is on the steady rise thanks to its excellent practicality and unique design amid the lifestyle trend in favor of outdoor activities. Recently, pickup trucks are shedding ‘cart’ image -- an open cargo box overflowing with heaps of packages. Instead, a growing number of pickup truck models are adopting deck covers designed to protect products in the cargo section. Customers also prefer SUV-like pickup trucks with active and sporty sensibilities for outdoor activities.
