chain structures will become more complex and choosing the right supplier will be more critical. Increasingly stringent supplier
requirements will become routine, and demanding purchasers will expect suppliers to demonstrate their essential competencies. Supply
chain risk, scarcity of raw materials, environmental, sustainable and economic issues will lead to increased pressure on these buyersupplier
relationships.
