Sinolytics Supply Chain Service

Geopolitics and political developments increasingly disrupt supply chains. While some companies started to adjust their tier-1 supply chains in light of new geopolitical realities, tier-X dependencies often still remain opaque. But to really increase resilience, companies need to understand their entire supplier dependencies and systematically assess the risks of geopolitical scenarios on their supply chains.

Sinolytics supports clients to x-ray your entire supply chain, pinpointing your China dependencies. Our analysis deploys our proprietary Sinolytics Supply Chain Database that maps supplier relations down to tier-8 level. Our experts closely look into complex supply networks, such as semiconductors, pharmaceuticals, electronics, energy, photovoltaics, motors, batteries, and many others. As well as supply chains of raw materials like lithium, cobalt, rare earth elements, silicon, tungsten, magnesium and many other raw materials.

Combined with our geopolitical monitoring and analysis, we assess politically driven fallout risks for critical inputs. Based on our geopolitical stress tests, we advise on feasible resilience-building options. Jointly with our client counterparts at C-level, from procurement and strategy departments, Sinolytics develops a sophisticated and tailor-made toolbox for increasing supply chain resilience.
