This report provides a detailed analysis of purchasing methods and expected expenditures for Asian mines across plant and heavy equipment; parts and components; explosives, blasting materials and chemicals; and maintenance services. There is a focus on procurement methods and expenditure analysis is broken down into four areas. The analysis is based on Timetric's extensive survey of 115 mine managers, procurement managers and other key decision-makers.
Areas of analysis include:
- Current methods for acquiring equipment, with a review of outright purchasing, rental, leasing and other types of financing arrangement.
- Future trends in expenditure and expectations for increased or decreased spend in four areas: plant and heavy equipment, equipment parts and components, explosives materials, and maintenance services.
- An analysis of future changes to the number of supplier relationships, and whether respondents expect greater or fewer supplier relationships over the next 12 months.
- Investigation into the biggest challenges facing buyers and decision makers in sourcing the right products.
- The extent to which preferred supplier arrangements are in place, and predictions for increased centralisation of procurement.
Overall trends in the data revealed:
- Outright purchase is the most common purchasing method
- Asian miners are optimistic about future expenditure
- Challenges in sourcing products are primarily related to supplier attributes and capabilities
- Asian miners are increasing their levels of procurement centralization
The survey is based on responses from 115 senior managers and decision makers at operating Asian mines, responsible for the purchase of equipment for plant and mine operations, along with its consumables. Survey respondents came from seven different countries: India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Pakistan, Vietnam, Mongolia and Thailand. This included six different commodity groups and a range of surface and underground mining operations.
