Natural Gas Utilities - Category Spend Analysis

According to SpendEdge analysts, one of the key growth contributors for the global natural gas utilities supply market is the buyers' preference for natural gas as fuel due to its high combustion quality, price, and lower carbon dioxide emissions, which has resulted in more investment in pipelines, storage facilities, and equipment such as meters.

 

Natural Gas Utilities -  Procurement Best Practices

Buyers must engage with suppliers with large capital reserves, as effective distribution and maintenance of infrastructure are capital intensive, and lack of financial backing can lead to interruptions in supply. This will help buyers choose suppliers that they believe can sustain for a longer duration and benefit from long-term engagement in terms of pricing.

 

Natural Gas Utilities - Procurement Challenges

Based on the analysis in this report, a major procurement pain point experienced by the buyers is the uncertainty in natural gas prices. SpendEdge’s procurement specialists predict that the buyers should engage with suppliers that can successfully implement clauses in the SLA to safeguard the user from price fluctuation.
