This report on global Horticultural Products category is part of a larger series of reports on global Environmental Goods market. The scope of Environmental Goods spans multiple categories and is typically identified as a procurement category that includes all spend related to the provision of materials used for or procured from agricultural, horticultual and animal-related activities.
The market for Environmental Goods and its sub-segments such as Horticultural Products are at an interesting intersection. Technology is improving productivity and creating fresh demand. Convergence of data science, automation tools, 3D printing, robotics, AI and big data has opened up multiple possibilities to better serve customers at a lower operational cost.Regulatory changes are taking place more frequently and the changes impact multiple functions within an organization. Alignment of procurement practices and decisions with all the new regulations has now become highly challenging, especially when category managers are responsible to centrally procure for multiple regions with different regulations.The global industry has seen a gradual increase in labor cost due to several factors, such as shortage of a trained workforce, increase in minimum wages, regulations around employee benefits and declining appeal for what have been traditionally called unskilled jobs. As the employee expenses increase, suppliers are compelled to pass some of this increase to their buyers by charging higher prices.Trends like these and many others discussed in this report are necessitating a relook at the way Horticultural Products is procured and the procurement cost saving opportunities that exist.
Horticultural Products procurement best practices are moving towards a level of sophistication which is typically seen in traditional procurement categories. Category managers now have an attractive opportunity to adapt the best practices seen within this category as well as those being leveraged in other non-related categories. This report summarizes the best practices picked from across multiple categories that could work well for category managers involved with Horticultural Products procurement strategy. For example, Buyers can consider engaging suppliers that use advanced technologies such as automation, robotics, and lean manufacturing in their manufacturing process. The use of such technologies enables suppliers to control their OPEX and reduce TAT, which will help buyers avail volume-based discounts on category purchases. While competitive bidding as a cost optimization tool is extremely potent but should be carefully deployed only when there is no significant differentiation among Horticultural Products suppliers. Large organizational buyers can leverage their scale of operations to initiate competitive bidding between suppliers. Competitive bidding would enable buyers to have a better visibility of the market prices and may help identify suppliers that offer the most competitive price offering viz-a-viz other players.
