KEY PROCUREMENT INSIGHTS COVERED

Strategic Sourcing Guide to Procurement And Supply Chain Consulting Procurement

Overview

The market for Construction Service Providers and its sub-segments such as Procurement And Supply Chain Consulting are at an interesting intersection. Periods of macroeconomic uncertainty and increasing stringency of immigration laws are key contributors to the workforce shortage in the market. Domestic workers in developed countries often choose to pursue higher education and less cyclical employment opportunities while foreign workers return to their home countries due to tough immigration laws and economic conditions. Consequently, suppliers have had to increase labor wages to attract skilled and unskilled labor, which has increased their costs and forced them to increase their pricing.

Over the years, regional boundaries have blurred as suppliers foray into different continents, increase their capital expenditure and spend on cross-border M&A initiatives. The deployment of geographic diversification strategies through such consolidation initiatives has enabled the large suppliers to improve their performance and expand their business footprint.

Construction activities and manufacturing of construction supplies are known to be a large source of emissions across the world. Regulatory and social pressures to keep emissions in check have transformed the way construction industry operates. Sustainable practices have penetrated the traditional business processes. There is an increasing demand for green buildings, low carbon concretes and other low emission construction aggregates and renewable energy solutions. All these factors are contributing to a significant change in the procurement standards and practices within the category.

Trends like these and many others discussed in this report are necessitating a relook at the way Procurement And Supply Chain Consulting is procured and the procurement cost saving opportunities that exist.

  • Procurement without consulting the actual users of Procurement And Supply Chain Consulting may result in a mismatch in expectations of the buyer's internal stakeholders versus the actual contract executed
