Aftermarket Becomes Prime Time for Dealers

Detroit News - November 4, 2012

Deal­ers can no longer ignore the prof­its to be made by pay­ing close atten­tion to the after­mar­ket, as wit­nessed by the recent Spe­cial­ty Equip­ment Mar­ket Asso­ci­a­tion trade show in Las Vegas.

Sta­tis­tics indi­cate the expand­ed lev­el of indus­try impor­tance.

If it has any­thing to do with a car, it was found here at the Spe­cial­ty Equip­ment Mar­ket Asso­ci­a­tion trade show. With more than 2,250 exhibitors in atten­dance this year, it was the largest show in SEMA’s his­to­ry.

Once con­sid­ered a niche busi­ness, the U.S. auto­mo­tive spe­cial­ty equip­ment indus­try is expect­ed to rake in near­ly $30 bil­lion this year.

…the vast major­i­ty of the con­ven­tion floor was crammed with 125,000 sales­men, car cus­tomiz­ers and mom-and-pop auto shop own­ers who gath­ered to see and sell the lat­est tech­nol­o­gy in the after­mar­ket car indus­try.
