The October 2018 “SEMA Industry Indicators” report is now available through SEMA Market Research.
Another month of solid economic growth is in the books and the U.S. economy continues to look strong. Consumers remain optimistic, and unemployment is at a 40-year low.

New-vehicle sales are also projected to grow over the next few months, despite slowing a bit recently. Overall, we’re a month away from the holiday shopping season, and all signs indicate that it will be strong this year.
