Automotive Parts Supply Market Assessment – A Case Study by SpendEdge

Nov 27, 2018

Automotive Parts Manufacturing Industry Overview

The automotive parts manufacturing industry has grown substantially over the past few years, as automakers, the industry’s largest customers, have benefited from rising sales. Higher consumer confidence and increased disposable income have resulted in an increase in car sales. Stronger new car demand has triggered higher production from vehicle manufacturers, which supports revenue growth for automotive parts manufacturers and automotive parts stores.

As the automotive industry adapts to a future that includes electric drivetrains, autonomous technology, connectivity, and mobility opportunities outside traditional car ownership, suppliers must evolve to meet these new challenges. New business entrants including tech firms and consumer electronics firms also present challenges to established suppliers. To remain aggressive, automotive suppliers must develop fresh strategies that address this wide host of rising challenges and opportunities.

Supply Market Assessment: Why is it Essential?

DemoToday, brands are under relentless pressure to stay relevant in an increasingly crowded and competitive marketplace. To stay relevant, brands need to understand how to compare new products or services with the life of the consumer. By analyzing the supply market and maintaining a consistent awareness of the challenges or barriers to entry or growth, businesses will have the data they need to build accurate go-to-market strategies and business plans.

Supply market assessment helps to visualize the importance of leveraging intelligence in procurement decision making. Also, the strategic use of supply market assessment paves the way for organizations to confront the accelerating procurement challenges.
