Being aware to the French market price is an essential data to adjust a market strategy.
The best way to evaluate the market price level is to obtain requests for quotation from French potential customers and analyse the feedback about the offer. Buyers in the industry are sometimes open to give some hints about the price position of a new supplier; it is their interest to allow this newcomer to adjust its offer.
A market price watch is easier to monitor for commodities rather than for project-specific solutions. Regarding commodities, it is difficult to break into a new customer with an existing supplier’s portfolio; It is especially true in the automotive industry because most commodities have obtained a technical release from either Renault or PSA Group (now Stellantis). Other industry sectors are also liable to long and demanding release processes, like the aeronautic, railways or medical industries.
