Global procurement outsourcing growth

Industry analyst and research firm Everest Group recently released a report entitled 2012 Market Predictions which notes that global procurement outsourcing will grow by 20 percent next year as clients diversify their procurement deals covering various processes such as inventory management, order fulfilment, and logistics with the help of several service providers. The firm also believes that government sectors worldwide will be more proactive, specifically the UK with its ongoing procurement.

The study also stated that contracts will have a broader scope, with financial executives touching up on procurement outsourcing. This may result to outsourcing contracts that will focus mainly on finance and accounting, as well as purchasing.

Companies like Accenture, ICG Commerce, and IBM are considered strong players in the procurement sector, and there are firms that are likely to make a mark in the market as they post rapid growth. Everest also stated that source-to-contract (S2C) and procure-to-pay (P2P) will grow in 2012.
