Research Staff

SEMA's Market Research Department continuously engages in research activities in order to provide SEMA-member companies with specialty-equipment industry information that can be used to make better business decisions. The research team regularly conducts studies that include enthusiasts as well as the general consumer market, and sometimes involve focus groups. Some of the reports produced include the Annual Market Report, niche-specific reports like the Light Truck Report and monthly studies such as the Consumer Demand Index (CDI).

Government Affairs Staff

Legislation has a huge and growing affect on the automotive specialty-equipment market. The outcome of these legislative initiatives frequently impacts the way products are made, distributed and marketed. SEMA has a proven legislative and regulatory program led by a professional staff based in Washington, D.C. that continually works on behalf of the membership. The program includes a number of components that together have resulted in a long list of successes of significant benefit to the industry.
