Strategic Sourcing Guide to Coarse Ferrosilicon Procurement

Overview

Several macro changes in the dynamics of overall Non-Medical Chemicals Minerals and Gases as well as Coarse Ferrosilicon procurement trends are poised to change the business practices and procurement thumb rules. Suppliers are continuously taking efforts to improve efficiencies and productivity and deploying processes and technologies. Some of these investments are likely to increase their costs in the shorter term, but learnings from other sectors keep the suppliers optimistic about a lean cost structure in the longer run.

Suppliers are under an enhanced pressure to offer greater quality, options that suit unique requirements and overall experience of the customer stakeholders involved.

Regulatory guidance on data protection and increasing concern over cybersecurity have increased the costs for suppliers as they incur additional spend on compliance and security. These additional costs have a potential to drive marginal increase in prices across the key geographies.

Category managers need to take note of the potential of these developments and reassess the changes required in their procurement practices.

Coarse Ferrosilicon Procurement Best Practices

The report discusses in detail the best practices that have served well the category managers responsible for Coarse Ferrosilicon procurement.

For example, Buyers should engage with suppliers that repurchase used products at fair market value. This assists buyers to dispose of used products in a convenient manner. Also, during such repurchases, suppliers provide credits to buyers for future purchases. This reduces overall procurement costs for buyers.

Strong R&D focus is the sign of a supplier committed to enhancing the quality and cost proposition of its solutions. Buyers should collaborate with such suppliers for development of low-cost but highly efficiency products that can bring their OPEX down.

Buyers should assess the level of adoption of the latest technologies by suppliers to assess cost-saving opportunities and quality that can be provided by the latter. For instance, the adoption of technologies such as cloud computing will enable suppliers to reduce their internal computing hardware requirements for operations such as CAD and CAM. This can, in turn, enable them to reduce their operating costs, thereby suppliers can offer products at lower rates to buyers.

Risks in Coarse Ferrosilicon procurement

Coarse Ferrosilicon procurement managers also need to proactively identify and mitigate potential risks that can arise in the supply chain or contracts for Coarse Ferrosilicon procurement. Some examples include:


  • Political and regulatory changes pose significant risks to the category. For instance, imposition of tariffs on raw materials required to manufacture the finished goods increases costs. Similarly, restrictions on import of goods or raw materials from a particular country also contributes to significant risks. Additionally, insufficient IPR protection and product liability lawsuits lead turnout to be huge risk factors for the category
  • When requirements of the buyers are not absolutely clear or usage patterns are not stable or predictable, suppliers often build in \"cost buffers\" for unforeseen risks due to a lack of complete understanding on buyer's requirements. This increases the risk of overspending on Coarse Ferrosilicon
  • Crude oil is one of the major factors that determines the risks associated with the category as fuel costs account for a major portion of the suppliers' cost structure. Volatility in the prices of crude oil significantly impacts the overall costs incurred in the category
