Epidural Needles is an essential part of the Medical and Surgical Consumables category which includes all spend on recurring products used in the application of invasive or non invasive treatment of medical conditions or disease containment activities. The products should be non-durable in nature and designated to be of single-use or temporary use.
Medical and Surgical Consumables market around the world is undergoing rapid transitions that have a massive potential to influence the way companies strategize for Epidural Needles procurement and the cost they have to incur. Rapid growth in the biosimilar and biologics market and global focus on gene therapy studies for rare diseases have resulted in an increased spend within the broader industry. Many suppliers are expanding within the value chain to offer integrated solutions. With this new approach, suppliers can offer a wide portfolio of solutions and position themselves for large contracts that go beyond just Epidural Needles. Buyers also find the benefits of volume buying, consolidation of supplier base, efficient co-ordination in case of an event and less spending on category management. Despite increasing costs on almost all fronts, suppliers are resisting a drastic price increase due to intense competition where market players are willing to increase their market share at the cost of profitability. Therefore, buyers can expect pricing status quo in most cases, or only negligible to marginal price increases in some cases.
Sometimes, procurement functions are unable to timely alter their practices while responding to market conditions. Industry experts acknowledge that periodically reviewing procurement best practices and adopting learnings from across procurement categories can help procurement teams respond to market needs in a more agile way. This report combines our experience of other categories with Epidural Needles procurement insights and hand picks best practices that can work for category managers delving in this market. For example, It is important for category managers to track and measure the performance of suppliers against a set of defined KPIs that are agreed upon during the contract negotiation phase. The performance of suppliers can also be linked to a portion of their fee that can be paid upon rendering of services in a satisfactory manner. Category buyers should invite bids from all potential service providers that have the ability to meet the overall requirements. Bids must be evaluated based on pre-defined parameters such as financial strength, reputation, offerings, geographical presence, and track record. Buyers can use standard scorecards to evaluate service providers and provide necessary feedback to rationalize the given scores. This helps in the effective documentation of decision-making processes. Investing in benchmarking studies help category managers enhance their knowledge about market pricing or billing rates based on job roles and functions. This allows them to not only save costs but also negotiate with suppliers. For example, while negotiating on rates of bundled services, buyers can save significantly on a single service by cross verifying the rates quoted by suppliers against industry benchmarks.
