“In-car entertainment is projected to increase by a retail volume CAGR of 3% over the forecast period 2013-2018. This is relative to a review period CAGR of 4%.

Sandboarding is just one of the things that are catching on in Saudi Arabia, utilizing the power of the many SUVs available.

A winch is a mechanical device that consists of a wire cable that can wound in or out to get you out of sticky situations. You would not want to get stuck in the sand while sandboarding after all. You would need a winch to pull you out of a “sticky” situation, so it is useful to have one mounted on the front bumper. This could important if you off-road into the desert often, even if you drive a suitable vehicle. The winch is also one of the popular FJ Cruiser accessories, although SUVs have the reputation of being desert spiders on the sand.
