million metric tons (or 60% of the world’s supply). million metric tons. However, as standards for sourcing become more strict, these big players may lose business if they fail to provide visibility into their supply chains. Cobalt demand will exceed supply by 42% in 2025 and 170% in 2030. It’s estimated that locating enough new sources to meet these demand spikes would take about 30 years — a long-term solution for a short-term need.

Evolution of B2B Networks

This can include demand sensing into Distribution Requirements Planning (DRP), Demand-Driven Materials Requirement Planning (DDMRP), the Internet of Things sensing, and the use of independent demand into transportation planning. The network senses, translates, and orchestrates market changes (buy- and sell-side markets) bidirectionally, across multiple tiers, with near real-time data to align sell, deliver, make, and sourcing organizations outside-in.

I find most companies are good at pockets of planning–demand planning, supply planning, transportation planning, material planning or plant scheduling, but the flows are not connected. Each are good at localized planning within a focused area of demand, supply, network design, transportation planning, material sourcing or finite scheduling. The greatest value happens when companies can link across source, make and deliver. Economic Vision of Supply Chain 2030.

The rankings are based on a composite score based on the opinions of Gartner’s analysts; a group of peer voters (mostly supply chain practitioners, professionals and experts; in the interests of full disclosure, I myself am part of the peer panel); some metrics, including return on assets, inventory growth and revenue growth; and a corporate social responsibility (CSR) component score. So the CSR score too is more of a popularity contest than a consistent metric. Source ID.
