The intensifying competition between sectors such as consumer packaged goods, pharmaceuticals, and media and advertising is driving procurement in the market research services industry in APAC.

Insights into the industry pricing trends

  • The growing shortage of skilled labor and increasing salaries of employees is driving the operational costs of suppliers. This will have a subsequent inflationary impact on buyer’s procurement expenditure in the market research services industry.
  • Suppliers are increasingly investing in the adoption of automation software. This is increasing their OPEX, which will be passed on to buyers in the form of slightly higher procurement costs.

What are the strategies to adopt to optimize procurement spend in this industry?

  • Prior to finalizing contracts with suppliers, buyers are advised to conduct pilot projects with prospective suppliers to assess their capabilities. This will also help buyers to assess the cost benefits and value proposition of the proposal.
  • The lead time of a market research project has a direct impact on buyers’ strategic business decisions. Any delay in research outputs automatically postpones strategic decision-making processes, which can sometimes defeat the very purpose of the project. Therefore, buyers should prefer suppliers who operate on short lead time as it reduces billing rates. Buyers can also demand quick solutions that can be leveraged effectively to gain a competitive edge in the market.
