Supplier Market Assessment

Supplier Market Analysis (SMA) is a key element and integral part of any robust market intelligence program. Supplier market analysis is the presentation of actionable insights and market intelligence gathered using various research techniques for the overall supplier landscape. Its prime objective is to develop the necessary intelligence to drive better procurement decisions. A properly executed and insightful supply market assessment requires substantial amounts of research material to be collected and examined.

While most of the core information required for a supply market analysis can be gathered from existing literature, publications, broadcast media, and other non-human sources, information gathered through interactive means typically including one-on-one interviews, focus groups and surveys form a very important part of the assessment. A supply market analysis should be undertaken to develop a detailed understanding of key trends, major players, and overall market dynamics that could influence the development of the commodity strategy.

Steeple Research’s experienced teams leverage their strong secondary and primary research skills to gather qualitative and insightful information about the supplier landscape. Our reports provide information that is critical to developing effective procurement strategies, in the context of planning for significant procurement. We leverage the skill and expertise of our procurement teams to provide our clients with the strategic understanding of:

  • How a market works
  • The direction in which a market is heading
  • The competitiveness of a market
  • The capability and capacity of a market
  • Key suppliers and the value that suppliers place on the agency as a customer
  • How suppliers or markets can be developed to better meet agency requirements
  • The sustainability performance and capability of the market
  • How to manage variances in pricing over time or between suppliers
  • Case Study
