Supplier Risk Management: Assessing Supply Chain Impact for a Personal Care Products Manufacturer

Aug 21, 2017

Category Overview

The personal care products industry includes products that are used for personal hygiene and beautification. Key factors fueling the growth of the personal care products market are increasing consumer inclination towards maintaining and enhancing personal aesthetic appeal, growing concerns about personal hygiene, and rapid growth of the retail industry. However, growing consumer inclination towards homemade remedies such as honey wash, high product costs, and lavender cream may pose a significant challenge for personal care products suppliers.

The presence of such challenges in the market coupled with the dire need for increasing profit margins in today’s competitive business scenario has compelled personal care products manufacturers to opt for supplier risk management services. Such solutions help businesses build capabilities for logistics, credit management, and other peripheral functions.
