Strategic Sourcing Guide to Marine Fenders Procurement

Overview

A changing ecosystem within the Non-Military Vehicles market also affects the procurement process, cost dynamics and supplier attractiveness for the buyers of Marine Fenders. Markets across the globe are reeling under shortage of professionals and workforce that have relevant skills and training. Minimum wages and stringent regulations are compelling suppliers to increase their employee expenses which are expected to have an inflationary impact on buyers' procurement cost.

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

Procurement costs for Marine Fenders are highly impacted by an increase in the costs associated with the value chain of Marine Fenders, such as logistics, labor cost and energy. Additionally, outdated assets are also increasing the cost for suppliers.

Risks in Marine Fenders procurement

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


  • Procurement without consulting the actual users of Marine Fenders may result in a mismatch in expectations of the buyer's internal stakeholders versus the actual contract executed
  • Suppliers may face a situation where they are unable to honor a contract in its entirety due to shortage of resources, finances or capabilities. While contractual terms safeguard buyers from the non-performance, their operations could still face massive disruptions due to suppliers' non-performance
  • 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
