Supply risk

Supply risk

The risk associated with a change in raw materials or input to a project from those assumed or projected. In the context of a resources production project, this is called reserves risk.

Supply Risk

The risk that a company will suffer a loss because it becomes unable to buy the raw materials necessary to make its products. For example, a corn mill has the supply risk that not enough corn will grow or farmers will be unable to transport it to the mill or something else will happen that will render the mill unable to provide its services.
