Land Preparation Services Procurement Category Market Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld

Share Article

The rebounding US economy has led to overall renewed demand for mining, construction and agriculture operations; demand in these sectors, in turn, has fueled an upward trend in prices for land preparation services, limiting buyer power. For these reasons and to help procurement professionals make better buying decisions faster, business intelligence firm IBISWorld has added a report on the procurement of Land Preparation Services to its growing collection of procurement category market research reports.

IBISWorld estimates that land preparation services have a buyer power score of 3.0 out of 5. This score is indicative of moderate buyer power in the market. In the three years to 2013, the rebounding US economy has led to overall renewed demand for mining, construction and agriculture operations. According to IBISWorld procurement analyst Agiimaa Kruchkin, “demand in these sectors, in turn, has fueled an upward trend in prices for land preparation services, limiting buyer power.” In addition, a high level of specialization and the low availability of substitutes have further harmed buyer power. Meanwhile, the highly fragmented nature of the sector has warranted a wide selection of service providers to choose from, aiding buyer power to an extent.

There is a wide range in price for land preparation services, which makes it challenging for buyers to budget their costs. Nevertheless, the need for land preparation services is anticipated to remain stable over the next three years due to consistent demand from downstream mining, agriculture and construction sectors, which serves as a catalyst for land preparation solutions. “The demand growth has been favorable for suppliers, and prices are expected to continue rising, albeit slowly, in the three-year period through 2016,” says Kruchkin.

The supply chain for vendors of land preparation services poses moderate risk for buyers, with some risk coming from the fluctuations in price for various inputs, such as excavation machinery. However, in the three years to 2016, buyers are not expected to face a high degree of risk with the supply chain, assuming that downstream demand remains stable. Moreover, the diversification of land preparation services across several markets, including agriculture, has caused vendor financial risk to decline due to reduced reliance on a single market, leading to moderate level of risk overall. Buyers should determine the need and frequency for land preparation services and then enroll in contracts to help mitigate long-term costs and rising prices.
