SEMA Measuring Sessions and Technology Transfer

About this product:

Designing new specialty-equipment products is a laborious, time-consuming procedure, and time is not a friend, as manufacturers will attest. With SEMA market research revealing that most consumers purchase specialty-equipment parts within the first three months of buying new cars, manufacturers must often race to place their products on the shelves by the time new vehicles hit the dealerships. SEMA offers two manufacturer-friendly programs—Technology Transfer and Measuring Sessions—that help SEMA-member companies meet that goal.

Death of the Gasoline Engine? Not Just Yet

About this product:

These are tough times for automotive performance aftermarket companies. The entire paradigm on which many built their existence—the dominance of the internal-combustion engine—appears to be collapsing.

Actually, however, the best of times for some specialty-equipment companies is yet to come. The internal-combustion engine will still be the dominant powertrain technology for quite a while. Aftermarket firms can continue to benefit from demand for products to make the internal-combustion engine increasingly more fuel efficient.

2010 SEMA Design Awards

About this product:

 

Car and truck buyers seek the vehicles that best suit their needs, including the need to be individual. While the automakers deliver an amazing variety of products to fit dozens of market niches, they cannot possibly create a unique vehicle for every unique customer. Accessories and performance products fill that void, allowing unlimited and complete personalization of any car or truck.

Vehicles of the 2009 SEMA Show

About this product:

Just when you think you’ve seen everything, it’s time for the SEMA Show and a whole new panorama of vehicular sculpture. Virtually every type of car, truck and—new this year—powersports machine appears in this automotive carnival. While the premise of the event is mainly business—the place where the products that will appear on cars next year are ordered by retailers and jobbers today—the SEMA Show is also a gallery of works produced by the greatest custom builders in the country. The annual SEMA News “Vehicles of the Show” preview provides a mere sampling of what will be parked in and around the Las Vegas Convention Center.
