An automotive company in India ventures into the production of electric vehicles in 2018. The undying craze and demand for specialized models of electric vehicles brainstormed the company for the production of EVs.
The Company was not able to identify potential risks such as supply chain disruptions, and regulatory changes. This led to a stagnancy in the growth of the company.
By March 2022, after several failed attempts the Company’s leadership realized that it would need professional help, to devise a plan of action for estimating the future market scenario related to demand and supply. It then sought out Research Nester’s services.
Research Nester analysts helped the company to incorporate a strategy that enabled it to manage market dynamics and build up sales.
The Indian company came to the forefront in 1992. The company produced automobiles since 1992 in accordance with consumer demand. The company shifted to electric vehicle production in 2018. The company experienced steady growth. However, the lack of production of microchips boiled down the supply of EVs. Moreover, the extravagant prices of lithium including other raw materials, and their limited availability impacted the company’s ability to secure a consistent and cost-effective supply of materials. This resulted in supply constraints for finished products. The preferences of the clients and the specific demands of EVs were not properly forecasted. This led to finished products of EVs and restrained the supply of the company. This major setback in the very 2nd year of the company’s new venture, made the authorities turn to Research Nester to navigate and find constructive solutions.
The foremost drawback of the company was limited research on the supply chain analytics of EVs. Research Nester assisted the company with market logistics and mitigated the issues of demand and supply with their business strategy and analysis. Following were the suggestions from Research Nester analysts after a thorough supply and demand analysis:
By utilizing these analytical tools, the company could optimize its inventory, manage its suppliers, and figure out the current market trends to strategize its production.
A significant supply-demand variation and a very poor return on investment were faced by the company. The company grew at the rate of 35% in 2020 which eventually drained to 20% in 2021. After the end of the first quarter of 2021, Research Nester was brought into the picture to help the business stay afloat and manage sustainable growth. The analysts created a comprehensive maneuver for the company’s supply and demand business model considering its offer to suppliers, the market price of its products, the margins, and the supply chain mechanism. The prevailing demand in the market, the end-use industries with high product requirements, and the current competitive landscape were also analyzed. The top sources for supplying superior quality raw materials such as lithium can be vindicated with the partnership of other suppliers. The percentage growth reached 30% by the end of 2022 and is expected to reach 45% by the end of 2023. With a better understanding of the market mechanisms and crucial analysis of the current and future trends, the company was able to build a better market position and subsequently, profitable growth.
