New Study Confirms Auto Accessories Influence More Than One Million New Vehicle Sales Every Year

The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA), the authoritative source for research, data, trends and market growth information for the specialty auto parts industry, released the results of a new study entitled "Influence of Accessories on New Vehicle Sales." Key findings are that accessories influence more than 1 million new vehicle sales each year, help reinforce customer satisfaction, and can substantially increase sales at the dealership level.  In addition, the study shows that accessorization can influence new car shoppers to choose vehicle platforms that are accessory-friendly, even influencing those who do not actually accessorize their vehicle.
