2011 SEMA Show Opinion Leader Program

About this product:

For the third consecutive year, the Opinion Leader Program was conducted in conjunction with the 2011 SEMA Show in order to keep SEMA-member companies in tune with the current behavior and attitudes of automotive enthusiasts and to increase consumer knowledge on the best that the specialty-equipment industry has to offer.

This consumer focused program was designed to collect the views and observations of selected automotive enthusiasts who were well connected in through car clubs, discussion boards and social media, making them “opinion leaders” capable of spreading the word about new products to other enthusiasts and friends.  These opinion leaders were invited to attend the 2011 SEMA Show on Thursday and Friday and asked to review new products, vehicles and trends. Four focus groups were conducted on site in conjunction with this program.

The report contains an in depth anaylsis of what we learned from the 2011 participants through the focus groups.

2008 Trends and Forecasts - Q4 Update

About this product:

The specialty-equipment industry took a hit in 2008 as consumers scaled back their purchases—new vehicle sales dropped 35% during the third quarter alone, for example—but depending on the type of consumers analyzed, spending varied significantly. “Mainstream” consumers, those less likely to view automotive customization as a hobby or lifestyle, were often targeted by specialty-equipment companies as they began marketing to the general vehicle-buying public. As consumers, in general, cut back on new-vehicle purchases and subsequent personalization of newly acquired vehicles, much of the specialty-equipment industry suffered.

About this product:

The third quarter of 2008 took quite a beating—gas prices skyrocketed, vehicle sales dropped, consumer confidence tanked—but depending on what type of consumers being considered, things may not be as bad as one may think. Sure, consumers, in general, felt less optimistic during the summer months, but those that are considered “enthusiasts” may have helped keep the industry moving forward. Throughout the pages of this report, several sets of statistics from surveys and industry sources will help to provide an overall snapshot of Q3 2008.
