To meet the requirements specific to the needs of the client, we carried out an in-depth primary and secondary research. With our vast database of secondary research resources, highly experienced and dedicated analysts, and critical inputs from industry experts, we incline our research to help the client with deep-dive market insights. Furthermore, we follow a three-step research process which includes establishment of cost elements mentioned in the annual reports provided by the listed suppliers, followed by extensive secondary research to understand the percentage break for each cost element within the overall cost structure.
Our procurement market analytics team evaluated the various cost drivers such as variation in sub-contractor fee, increase in minimum wages, adoption of new technology, and volatility in consumable material and operational costs to design the cost model and gain insights on supplier market landscape.
