In 2014 we started gathering answers to a survey that would eventually become the very first State of the Float Industry Report.
We’ve released one every year since, and this year we (once again) have the most contributions that we’ve ever had. In total, 193 existing centers and 251 prospective centers responded to our call to help create the 2017 State of the Float Industry Report.
Based on feedback we received from last year’s report, we edited and added on some questions, but the bulk of the report is identical to those from previous years to allow for easy comparison.
Here are some interesting morsels from the Industry Report, just to whet your appetite:
- The average total startup cost of a center is $51-99k per tank. (page 14)
- 68 centers funded their centers at least partially through bank loans. (page 23)
- 52 prospective float centers had secured a location or were already under construction.(page 17)
As with every release, the 2017 State of the Float Industry Report is totally free –
