“The pace of digital innovation and ability for digital procurement solutions to scale over the last year has been impressive. Exceptional CEOs and Founding teams are inspiring a generational change to the digital procurement ecosystem solving global challenges.”
Lance Younger, Founder & CEO, ProcureTech
The 2022 ProcureTech100 were selected from over 4,000+ digital solutions from across the planet, using enriched data and analysis, combined with the collective experience of more than 60 procurement leaders, technology experts and B2B investors. Pioneers have been identified across 14 different categories.
The B2B Marketplaces category is one of the fastest growing, in particular, the top marketplaces with a distinct ‘thrive or survive’ syndrome at play.
The pandemic acted as an accelerator for many, as buyers are more likely to engage through digital channels, especially where they connect through the supply chain. Whilst digital purchases were mainly for small, high-volume, fast-moving items, marketplaces are increasingly seeing higher value purchases.
As a result, many are evolving their product beyond traditional B2C ‘buying’ capabilities to include sourcing and selecting suppliers and products, handling requests, contracts, payments and logistics, in addition to providing product or commodity intelligence. Leaders are promoting sustainable practices and supplier certifications to help buyers meet their CSR goals.
There are a growing number of niche marketplaces with defined specialties allowing a company to really focus their B2B buying efforts on the area that suits them.
Finally, marketplace ‘infrastructure’ solutions are enabling the rapid scaling of marketplaces too.
