Patch Panels Procurement Category Market Research Report from IBISWorld has Been Updated

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 07, 2015

Patch panels have a buyer power score of 4.0 out of 5, which is indicative of favorable negotiation power for buyers in this market. “Buyers benefit from low market share concentration and recent price decreases,” according to IBISWorld business research analyst Cameron Roark. However, moderate supply chain risk and high switching costs limits buyer power.

Buyers of patch panels benefit mostly from a low level of market share concentration because it forces many vendors to compete based on features, innovation and pricing. Buyers can pin different vendors against each other to secure more favorable rates. Furthermore, buyers benefit from fairly flat price trends. “Although demand for patch panels has risen due to the growing investment in computers and a rising number of businesses, the high level of competition and stagnation of purchasing costs keep the price of patch panels in check,” says Roark.

However, not all factors favor buyer power. High levels of competition squeeze profit margins, exposing the average vendor to more financial risk. Additionally, upstream suppliers experience frequent price volatility due to the commoditized nature of their products, such as plastic; vendors that are more exposed to risks in the supply chain experience disruptions or price fluctuations that can lead to bankruptcy or price spikes. Furthermore, buyers face high switching costs because the cost of installing, removing or replacing a patch panel and integrating cables with the device can be timely and costly. Consequently, buyer negotiation power is slightly hurt because once buyers commit to a vendor, they run the risk of incurring additional costs should they look to switch suppliers.

IBISWorld Procurement Report Key Topics

This report is intended to assist buyers of patch panels, which are computer network devices that mechanically connect or route data packets between computer networks. Typically used in local area networks (LAN), patch panels offer multiple connector ports into a single location to organize and manage the connection of internal computers. Because patch panels are generally found in computer-intensive industries, the most predominant downstream demand markets are financial, medical and data centers. However, due to their widespread use as network infrastructure, they are used in almost every market. This report does not include wielding panels, routers, jackfields, distribution frames or wiring closets.
