Purchasing trends 2019: Report available

For the seventh year in a row, Supply Value investigated the most important trends and priorities within the purchasing discipline. The results of the trend research can help purchasing professionals to set priorities and determine focus areas for the coming year.

Just like in previous years, an online survey has been drawn up to analyze the trends. This online survey was distributed in collaboration with NEVI and VIB. A total of 258 procurement professionals participated in the investigation.

In the online survey, we asked the respondents to score 15 issues related to purchasing on the basis of a five-point scale, where 1 has very little priority and 5 is very much a priority. The results show that purchasing professionals currently give most priority to:

1. Supplier management

2. Optimizing processes within the purchasing function

3. Able to buy with the business and strategy

With each purchasing trend we have formulated concrete recommendations in the report.
