Business Case

Market intelligence for a home appliances manufacturer

Our client is a worldwide renowned home electronics appliances manufacturer, with over with S$7.7 billion in turnover and +12,0000 employees. To gain better pricing visibility of their raw materials for their procurement and manufacturing teams, our client engaged us to develop monthly market intelligence reports on a diverse range of categories (e.g. semiconductors, resins, packaging…).

We helped our client perform monthly monitoring of selected categories, and forecasted category pricing and lead-time trends based on an in-depth analysis of each category’s market drivers, industry dynamics, key constraints and overall market news.

Over the year, we co-designed with our client to produce 12 fully customized reports, which were shared and used by over 20 unique teams in our client environment. Overall, we received exceptional C-level feedback on our high-value add, which resulted in a successful renewal of the project.
