In an interconnected and uncertain world, the role of regionalization in supply chain management is gaining prominence. A survey reveals that 30% of supply chiefs have shifted from a global to a regional model due to disruptions like natural disasters, geopolitical unrest, trade battles, and cyberattacks.

India's advancements in supply chain management, driven by initiatives like Atmanirbhar Bharat (self-reliance) and Make in India, highlight the benefits of regional manufacturing. These efforts, such as the Supply Chain Resilience Initiative and electronics manufacturing schemes, position India favorably for economic growth.

To enhance supply chain resilience, businesses can expand their supplier network, maintain strong ties with regional vendors, invest in technology for efficiency, and create robust backup plans. Regional supply chains have also been shown to reduce carbon footprints by up to 35%, promoting sustainability.

Regional supply networks contribute to

  • High control enabling cost efficiency
  • Increased flexibility
  • improved competitive advantage
  • local economic growth by
  • fostering innovation
  • attracting investment
  • creating jobs
  • integrating technology, such as cloud computing, IoT, AI, and blockchain, which enhances transparency, traceability, and collaboration in regional supply chains
