While exploring buyer–supplier collaborative relationships and new procurement opportunities through optimized use of the available resources, the present work proposes a framework depicting an appropriate policy. The proposed framework captures the technological and business basis for the integration of various elements for e-market characterization with expected outcomes. E-markets as coordination structures interact between various enterprises of the semiconductor industry supply chain (SSC) through the process of bidding and pricing system. In this regard, the factors affecting e-market adoption by the participants and the impact of e-market on customer service in the SSC are explored with the objective to develop strategies for collaborative relationships between buyer(s) and supplier(s) in e-market.
