Cost saving opportunities in the promotional products market

The adoption of various cost optimization levers helps buyers of promotional products realize cost savings and enhance category management and value benefits (including reduction in procurement complexities).

Technavio procurement experts have segmented the cost saving opportunities in the promotional products market into the following value-enhancement opportunities:

  • Adoption of technology
  • Supplier Competition
  • Adoption of negotiation strategies
  • Optimization of procurement practices
  • Bundling of services

Adoption of technology saving aspects

Technologies such as wearables include wristbands, smart bracelets, smartwatches, and GPS trackers, which can be used to monitor health and fitness goals, heart rates, and assess workouts.

Increasing use of Bluetooth devices, especially with increasing use of mobile phones, has resulted in various organizations providing Bluetooth devices as promotional products. An increase in the use of mobile phones has led to a rise in the adoption and popularity of power banks. At present, they are being used as effective promotional products.

Optimization of procurement practices saving aspects

With carbon pricing being strictly practiced across various geographies, buyers look for suppliers that have adopted measures to reduce their carbon footprints during the manufacturing stage.

Hence, they look for suppliers that use green materials such as cotton as well as adopt practices such as procurement of recycled raw materials to achieve sustainability goals.

Bundling of services saving aspects

Buyers must have a clear understanding of the sub-contracting policies of suppliers. Suppliers must be evaluated on factors such as price, quality, and regulatory compliance before engagement as they may hamper the brand that is being marketed using unsuitable promotional products.

Increasing number of suppliers are dependent on external supply chains for all their delivery needs. Hence, buyers need to look for players that have effective supply chains in place to source raw materials and deliver end-products cost-effectively.
