Commercial Printing - Category Spend Analysis

According to procurement analysts at SpendEdge, major printing firms are increasingly adopting technologies such as web-to-print services, automation in the production process, and logistics support to enhance the operational cost and service delivery for buyers, thereby, creating more demand from various end-user segments.

The packaging industry in developing countries is growing rapidly, primarily driven by the growth of end-user industries for packaging such as FMCG, pharmaceuticals, and consumer goods. The industry depends extensively on suppliers for printing labels, product information, and graphics on packages. Moreover, strict enforcement of regulations that require clear labeling of product information in product packages will compel buyers to avail packaging and label printing services. The growth of the packaging industry and the enforcement of labeling requirements in various consumer products will fuel the growth of the commercial printing industry during the forecast period

 

Commercial Printing - Procurement Best Practices

One of the procurement best practices for buyers is to automate the procurement operation. Multiple departments such as production, packaging interact with commercial print suppliers simultaneously. This is because there are different users for print services within the buyers' organization such as marketing department, packaging department, and HR service. Their requirements and specifications differ drastically and such departments issue purchase order for print services independently. Further, the existence of various types of printing methods, such as offset and digital, lithographic, and availability of different grades of paper and ink complicates the purchasing process. The use of automated procurement systems such as specialized P2P suites and software helps buyers to control and coordinate their purchases, which are fragmented across different departments by managing purchase orders and approved documents through integrated digital platforms such as online document delivery and order processing. This helps buyers to monitor, track and coordinate their fragment print spend. The use of advanced automated purchasing systems also helps buyers to automate the transactional/recurring print purchase orders, which helps buyers to save considerable cost by reducing manpower and human errors.

Commercial Printing - Procurement Challenges

According to this procurement research, one of the major procurement challenges faced by buyers is difficulty in accurately evaluating the EHS practices of suppliers. Buyers are compelled to make their supply chain green by engaging with suppliers that follow eco-friendly operational procedures because of increased stringency of environmental regulations and social importance given to EHS practices. They find it difficult to accurately evaluate the EHS practices of the supplier as these are internal strategies. Also, buyers do not enclose details about their suppliers as it affects their competitive advantage.
