Spend Analysis Study Helps a Leading Automaker Reduce Procurement Costs in APAC

Aug 3, 2017

Category Overview

Over the last decade, the global automotive industry has undergone a tremendous transformation in its history. Although the European and North American regions are the largest markets, the APAC region is witnessing an increasing share of global automotive sales and is the only market, which is expected to witness steady growth in the coming years. However, the major reason behind the market’s sluggish growth in this region is the social and political instability witnessed across this region. As a result, many automotive firms have started opting for spend analysis studies to improve process efficiency and cut down the costs.
