Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 07, 2014
Temporary IT staffing has a buyer power score of 4.0 out of 5, signifying a high degree of negotiating power for buyers. The high score reflects very slight recent and forecast price growth from 2011 to 2017. In addition, a large number of agencies provide temporary IT staffing, leading to greater competition and a wide availability of services, which benefits buyers. “Vendors have a low-risk supply chain and are generally financially stable, ensuring their ability to provide services to buyers,” says IBISWorld business research analyst Michelle Hovanetz. “However, a moderate degree of service specialization within the market diminishes buyer power.”
IBISWorld considers current prices to be low, having increased only marginally since 2011. Increased competition from substitutes has tempered price growth, despite growing demand for temporary IT staffing. Going forward, prices are expected to rise as the unemployment rate declines and more businesses increase their technology and online presence. Furthermore, expanding corporate profit will contribute to new business development and private investment in computers and software. “Both of these factors will ultimately boost demand for temporary IT staffing, causing prices to rise at a slightly higher rate than in the past three years,” says Hovanetz.
Vendors in the temporary IT staffing market have a low degree of supply chain risk, benefiting buyers and vendors alike. Suppliers rely on very few inputs to provide staffing services, ensuring that services will be available to buyers as long as there is a pool of labor. Similarly, buyers benefit from the financial stability of suppliers, which helps to ensure supplier longevity in long-term contracts.
Market share concentration in the temporary IT staffing market is moderate. The majority of buyers benefit from the wide availability of service providers. However, although many suppliers provide general staffing services, buyers in need of highly trained and specialized technicians for specific projects may be limited to more niche providers. A higher concentration of suppliers for specialized services negatively impacts buyers by limiting competition, allowing niche providers to charge a premium. Major vendors include Adecco SA, Allegis Group Services, CDI Corporation and Insight Global.
