Now more than 6,466 companies strong, SEMA has evolved into an international automotive aftermarket trade association, which today serves and embraces a diverse constituency representing the full spectrum of the specialty automotive equipment industry & aftermarket.
From aftermarket performance products for street and race applications to aftermarket appearance accessories for late-model automobiles, SEMA-member companies contribute to the vitality and strength of a $31 billion-a-year retail industry.
