Asia Perspective has conducted sourcing surveys regularly since 2013, aiming to measure the perception of China as a sourcing market, and how this perception is changing over time. The research is based on a survey sent to over 1,000 executives and purchasing managers in 15 countries around the world, thus reflecting changing opinions and paradigms rather than measurable sourcing changes, on which there already is sufficient data. The reason behind this form is to offer a glance into the future by measuring the intangible changes in perception that often predate tangible pattern shifts.

At a Glance:

  • What is the current sourcing situation in China and in other parts of Asia?
  • How has COVID-19 affected sourcing in China?
  • What are the biggest perceived risks in the context of COVID-19?
  • What are the perceived risks with sourcing in China today (2020) compared to 2019?
  • Which will be the most important sourcing countries and regions in the future?
