Top Industrial Automation Companies in the World

Automation arrived in the industrial age as a boon to manufacturing industries as they could mass-produce their products by incurring lower costs and ensuring high-quality. Today, industrial automation is not just limited to manufacturing operations, and has expanded its application area across the logistics and supply chain function of an organization. Supply chain professionals are more reliant on enterprise process robots, which can automate an entire business process such as supply chain. For instance, robotics solutions can detect that a warehouse is full due to the lack of inventory movement and automatically alerts procurement teams to adjust to a new storage location. The notion that robots are stationery, blind, and can only perform repetitive tasks are rapidly disappearing due to new-age intelligent robots which are lighter, flexible, and can learn on their own to perform new tasks. So who are the companies behind such game-changing innovations that are contributing to the modern-day industrial revolution?

SpendEdge Announces the Launch of a New Procurement Market Research Report on the Global Iron Ore Market

A rise in the production of steel due to increasing demand from end-user industries such as construction and automobiles is one of the key factors fueling the growth of the global iron ore market.

LONDON: The strategic procurement research report on the iron ore market is an integral part of SpendEdge’s metal and mining category portfolio and offers a deep-dive assessment of the current supply market, key factors influencing procurement decisions, pricing models, supplier landscape, and procurement best practices. It also offers insights into the major supply market insights, demand-supply shifts, and key market developments to help sourcing and procurement experts make smart strategic procurement decisions.

The augmentation in the use of automated fleets to reduce production costs is one of the key reason driving the global iron ore market. This resulted in the increased implementation of automated fleets in the mining of iron ore by suppliers.

“Purchasing managers must collaborate with suppliers that have adopted automation in mining processes, as it minimizes the risk of supply disruptions due to human error,” says Angad Singh, a metal and mining procurement research specialist at SpendEdge.

The prices of iron ore are highly dynamic in nature due to prevailing market conditions. The demand from the steel industry is one of the prominent factors affecting the prices of iron ore. This creates difficulty for purchasing managers to calculate prominent budgets, as it is difficult to forecast accurate prices of iron ore over the entire duration of the contract.

Tackling Volatile Commodity Prices to Improve Profitability

In today’s dynamic market space, it’s extremely surprising to see that the price of the final product is almost always constant even when the raw materials, services, and other commodity prices are fluctuating so often. Procurement managers are always on the lookout for sourcing materials at the lowest cost, but sometimes end up buying even when the price is high to meet the production schedule. However, by assessing commodity price volatility and adjusting sourcing strategies, procurement managers can improve the company’s profitability. Adjusting the sourcing strategy does not mean making bulk purchases when the prices are low as it may lead to wastages.

Risk Mitigating Strategies to Tackle Volatile Commodity Prices

Futures Procurement Contract

One of the best ways to mitigate risks arising from commodity price volatility is to sign a legal agreement to buy a particular commodity at a predetermined price at a specific time in the future. Futures contract is widely practiced in the oil and gas industry alongside other commodities such as industrial metals, precious metals, seeds, livestock, and grains. This allows the company to manage their risks from fluctuating commodity prices and have more predictable revenue.Get More Info

Keep Track of Price and Technology Trends

Companies don’t always have the luxury to mitigate increased commodity prices to their customers. Major commodity prices can be tracked and predicted based on historical data and upcoming trends. Apart from using the standard forecasting tools, observing the current market trends, the world economy, and other substitutes can prove to be a good indicator to predict commodity prices. For instance, increasing coal prices, development of renewable energy sources, and China’s production capacity can be speculated to estimate the price for aluminum.

Bundling Services

Procurement managers who are unable to mitigate their risk arising out of volatile commodity prices could revert to product and services bundling with a trusted supplier. Bundling products or services together helps stabilize the final price of the particular commodity so that managers can keep the price of the final product stable.

Price Forecasting Models

The advent of big data has empowered purchase managers with an immense amount of data and information. With proper prediction and analysis of factors that influence the commodity prices, an accurate prediction of future commodity prices can be made. Based on this information, purchase managers can make bulk purchases or defer the process to improve overall profitability.
