Being first to market is one way to establish industry dominance—especially an industry that moves as quickly as fracking. But being first isn’t enough. If you are first and unprepared, it’s easy for competitors to take your market share. The key is to be the first and the best prepared.
One important aspect of infrastructure: space. Specifically, cost-effective storage space and a way to move product in and out. Many locations require silica to be contained. A flat storage building keeps sand under cover during storage as well as loading and distribution. But traditional steel buildings can take months to build, eliminating the first-to-market advantage.
