"The improving efficiency of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing techniques in oil and natural gas extraction has enabled the mining of more wells in basins across the United States," said Frost & Sullivan Energy and Environment Principal Consultant Farah Saeed. "The consequent rise in productivity is creating a whole new section of demand for liquid solid container rentals."

Rental suppliers must tackle environmental concerns related to spills and liabilities associated with government regulations for hydraulic fracking, to wholly cash in on market potential. Since market entry barriers are relatively low, vendors also need to adopt viable strategies to cope with the heightened competition, pricing pressures and contractual obligations caused by the influx of new participants.

Cost-efficient, geographically-diverse container rental providers will be well-positioned to attract and retain customers. Ensuring short delivery times and robust customer service are key competitive strengths that will differentiate rental vendors from the competition.

"Offering value-added support will enable vendors to hold onto their customer base in the midst of tough competition," suggested Saeed. "Therefore, delivering maintenance services or facilitating the disposal of solids and movement of water from extraction activities will help providers power ahead in the North American liquid solid container rental market."
