Always one of the most popular sections at the SEMA Show, Tools &
Equipment highlight the products that make mechanical life a little
easier for the installer, fabricator, builder and garage enthusiast.
SEMA’s monthly forecasting tool to determine consumer demand for
industry products has been rebranded SEMA Consumer Demand Index for
Performance Products and Accessories. Formerly called PADI, short for
Performance and Accessories Demand Index, the new name seeks to clarify
the intent and purpose of the program.
In a multi-phased series of specialty-equipment industry forecasting
reports, SEMA and the Center for Automotive Research (CAR) will provide
insight to help members increase the understanding and awareness of
vehicle technology challenges and opportunities to support their
business development and planning efforts.
