Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 29, 2014
The buyer power score for industrial hygiene services is 3.3 out of 5, indicating moderately strong buyer power. “Buyers benefit from slow price growth, low price volatility and low market share concentration; however, buyer power is negatively affected by the low availability of substitutes,” according to IBISWorld business research analyst Deonta Smith. In the three years to 2014, the price of industrial hygiene services is expected to grow. As demand for industrial hygiene services is forecast to grow in the next three years, prices are anticipated to increase, with only slight fluctuations. This modest and steady price growth gives buyers the confidence to procure these services without the risk of experiencing unprecedented price hikes.
Buyers primarily benefit from low market share concentration and minimal price volatility. The low market share concentration gives buyers the ability to find the most cost-efficient provider to meet their needs. “Further, service providers often join directories or networks that allow buyers to more easily sort through potential industrial hygiene experts,” says Smith. Alternatively, buyers lacking in time and resources can pay an additional fee to employ industrial hygiene consultation services from a large corporation like AECOM Technology Corporation or CH2M Hill.
Several factors work against buyers of industrial hygiene services, though. For example, the lack of substitutes narrows the buyer's scope of possibilities. However, if a buyer is not satisfied with the firm that serves their operating sector, procuring services from a larger firm with greater economies of scope may be a more beneficial option. Leaning toward a larger operator can help buyers obtain leverage by creating competition during the negotiation process.
