Strategic Sourcing Guide to Polychloroprene Procurement

Overview

Engineering Materials market around the world is undergoing rapid transitions that have a massive potential to influence the way companies strategize for Polychloroprene procurement and the cost they have to incur. 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 Polychloroprene are highly impacted by an increase in the costs associated with the value chain of Polychloroprene, such as logistics, labor cost and energy. Additionally, outdated assets are also increasing the cost for suppliers.

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.

Polychloroprene Procurement Best 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 Polychloroprene category procurement. The report offers a succinct analysis of Polychloroprene procurement best practices.

For example, 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.

Buyers should engage with suppliers that have adopted a global delivery model as it reduces buyers' risk. In this model, any disaster/emergency at any operating facility of supplier will result in the work being transferred to a different facility, thereby ensuring continuity of the project and reduced risk for buyers. This model also provides buyers access to skilled labor from across the globe, thereby improving the quality of engineering products provided by the supplier.

Risks in Polychloroprene procurement

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


  • With changing technologies, the manufacturing, packaging and labelling requirements have become more stringent than ever across geographies globally. RFID tags, temperature sensors, and barcode scanners, have become common requirements across the category. There is also an increase in the adoption of technologies such as AI and IoT. Therefore, suppliers incur excessive costs to keep upgrading their technology and to ensure maintenance of these technologies across various stages of the product category
  • 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 are not very common in the category but they do exist in certain situations where buyers' liquidity or financial health is in question
  • Procurement without consulting the actual users of Polychloroprene may result in a mismatch in expectations of the buyer's internal stakeholders versus the actual contract executed
