Strategic Sourcing Guide to Shellac Procurement

Overview

Business practices within Shellac market are heavily influenced by changing trends across the category as well as within the broader Construction Supplies market. The growing need for smarter and resilient construction has encouraged a rapid implementation of advanced BIM solutions. The integration of 4D BIM and geographical information system (GIS) is helping in improving construction productivity, construction supply chain management, material supplier selection, estimation of deliveries, and overall coordination between construction companies and material suppliers.

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.

Suppliers across the value chain are increasing their investments in technologies and incorporating systems integrated with IoT, AI, Big data, and data analytics to generate efficiencies and better serve the evolving demand patterns of buyers. This is expected to impact the cost structure of suppliers in the short-term but will help bring down the costs in longer run as suppliers recover the costs of current investment cycles.

As a result, category managers need to closely monitor the Shellac procurement trends and identify changes required in their procurement environment for the category.

Shellac Procurement Best Practices

It has become imperative for category managers to remain as agile as possible in terms of their procurement practices. However, it is not always easy to quickly spot and implement alternative practices in a category like Shellac. To help quick decision making, this report advises on several procurement best practices that have worked well for category managers.

For example, Buyers must have a clear understanding of the sub-contracting policies of suppliers. Suppliers must be evaluated on factors such as price, quality, and regulatory compliance of their subcontractors before they are selected.

Service providers may outsource certain aspects of the project if they lack the required expertise or to expedite the project progress. If the subcontractor is not covered by a reliable liability insurance or does not abide by the same terms and conditions that were laid down for the main contractors, then it can hinder the main contractor's ability to perform its services. It may also entangle the buyers in legal complications and negative publicity.

Large firms should prefer to engage in long-term contracts with a preferred set of suppliers that can provide integrated solutions for all scales of projects (small, mid-sized, or large). Partnerships with preferred service providers lead to category-level innovations and enable buyers to avail customized services.

Risks in Shellac procurement

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


  • Procurement without consulting the actual users of Shellac may result in a mismatch in expectations of the buyer's internal stakeholders versus the actual contract executed
  • Construction projects are exposed to different types of political and regulatory risks depending on the project lifecycle stage, for example, delayed construction permits, community opposition during the planning and construction phases, expropriation and changes to asset-specific regulations, tightened decommissioning requirements and non-renewal of licenses at the end of a contract
  • Inaccurate estimates of resources and timelines, poor project planning, increase in scope of the project, changes and variations in the project or lack of clarity on responsibilities/ scope of work may result in buyers incurring additional cost on the project that exceeds their planned budget
