I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your membership and trust in SEMA Data.
Christmas is fast approaching and on its heels is the New Year. As I reflect on this past year and the accomplishments we've achieved and the milestones we've been able to hit here at SEMA Data, I know that we could not have achieved them without you, our trusted and active members.
You have given us insight and feedback to help improve our services to you and for the industry. You inspire us to continually innovate and meet the challenges of the last couple of years head on. Your utilization of the services and product data managed at SEMA Data has contributed to the strength of our industry.
With the growth of eCommerce and its reliance on product data, we've seen over 1.2 million datasets exchanged in this year alone, powering businesses large and small -- not to mention the jump in usage of the SEMA Data eCom plugins and APIs, too. The volume of business that this activity has contributed to our specialty aftermarket industry not only helps it to remain strong, but also fueled its growth by double digits in an otherwise turbulent year.
There are so many reasons why your participation matters, but most importantly you remind us that we play a pivotal role in shaping our industry and its future.
Thank you again for being a part of SEMA Data, and I wish you a Happy Christmas and Merry New Year! May your holiday be blessed with the love and warmth of family and friends.
