About BME Market Research

As part of its market research services, the BME collects a wide range of professional key figures and market information that support purchasing decision-makers in their strategic and operational business and help them to stay ahead of the competition.


With its BME Benchmark Top Key Performance Indicators in Purchasing (KPI), the BME defines standards for measuring the performance and quality of procurement and enables anonymous comparison with the competition.


The BME Benchmark Company Car contains strategic key figures on costs, processes, organization and contract management, which were queried from the participating companies.

The results thus provide valid comparative values that can be used to classify and improve a company's own performance. To keep abreast of the general economic market situation and the further economic outlook, the BME offers the HCOB Einkaufsmanagerindex Deutschland (EMI), a monthly leading indicator of the forecast economic development in Germany.


In addition, the BME publishes market information that presents developments and trends in order to better understand market-specific movements and to be able to adequately derive risks and opportunities. We currently offer market information on raw materials and freight.
