Strategic Sourcing Guide to Needles For Sutures Procurement

Overview

Several macro changes in the dynamics of overall Medical and Surgical Consumables as well as Needles For Sutures procurement trends are poised to change the business practices and procurement thumb rules. 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.

Recent cases of malpractices committed within the overall industry have increased the strictness of regulators within the overall industry. Suppliers now operate with a higher burden in the form of increased costs for compliance and data security as well as increased time to receive approvals for new solutions.

Providers are increasing their adoption of new tools and technologies to optimize efficiencies and reduce the time taken to launch products in the market. This is adding to their OPEX and will have an inflationary impact on the overall price paid by the buyers.

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

As market conditions become more dynamic and procurement practices get more sophisticated, category managers need to be cognizant of the best practices that work for their Needles For Sutures category procurement. The report offers a succinct analysis of Needles For Sutures procurement best practices.

For example, Buyers should look to minimize the contract-related risks where unfavorable credit terms may severly penalize buyers for delayed payments or entitle the supplier to demand pre-payments or shorten the payment terms. Although these clauses are not very common in the category, suppliers may still insist on them, especially in situations where buyers' liquidity or financial health is in question.

Category managers must ensure that they have clearly identified and listed down potential negotiation levers to maximize the value of their category spend before entering into contract-related discussions with service providers. Common negotiation levers to maximize value include deadlines, terms related to payments, (including fees, expenses, and payment timelines) and assistance required from the buyer's organization.

Risks in Needles For Sutures procurement
