Sourcing in the United States
Sourcing in the United States has increasingly turned to supply of products and services from the developing countries. The lower labor costs in developing countries offer an attractive alternative to the higher-cost suppliers from more developed economies. Moreover e-sourcing (sourcing through internet) is becoming more & more population in the USA as it further reduces the procurement cost.
Among all developed countries and LCCs (low-cost-countries) worldwide; the top three nations of import into the USA are Canada (a country with a developed economy) followed by two LCCs: China and Mexico. While trade with Mexico rose quickly initially following the enactment of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), but it has now slowed in recent years. More recently, a growing number of U.S. firms have begun broadening the reach of their import activities; trading with suppliers in countries they had conducted little or no business earlier, such as Hungary, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria and Russia. These Eastern European LCCs serve as manufacturing alternatives to China, the top Asian LCC. In near future these countries are likely to provide tough competition to those European suppliers catering to present sourcing needs in the United States. According to a study conducted recently on sourcing trends in the United States, Asia stands at the top followed by Western Hemisphere and Europe.
