Value addition of raw materials and minerals, and production of downstream products could be extremely beneficial for companies looking to vertically integrate their business, but usually, it demands adequate infrastructure, cheap energy, access to production inputs and expert labour. As such, value addition is not always an economic option. We help companies understand the supply chain of their products and investigate if the development of downstream capabilities is viable for them.
Development of industrial supply chains within a country or region brings supply security of intermediate products or parts, jobs and public revenue. We help government institutions and policy makers determine the benefits and challenges of value addition of raw materials and supply chain development.
We help our clients understand how complex a product supply chain is, the links that are missing in the region or country, and the financial and technical requirements to achieve full or partial supply chain.
