As the demand for ceramic proppant (including proppant produced by us) continued to be negatively impacted in 2018 by the severe decline in the oil and natural gas industry, the number of domestic and international competitors in the marketplace continued to decrease, and many of our competitors have shut down plants and/or reduced production. However, we do not have full visibility as to the extent or duration of these shut-downs and reductions. One of our worldwide proppant competitors is Saint-Gobain Proppants (“Saint-Gobain”). Saint-Gobain is a division of Compagnie de Saint-Gobain, a large French glass and materials company. Saint-Gobain manufactures a variety of ceramic proppants that it markets in competition with some of our products. Saint-Gobain’s primary manufacturing facilities are located in Bauxite, Arkansas. Saint-Gobain also manufactures ceramic proppant in China. Mineracao Curimbaba (“Curimbaba”), based in Brazil, also manufactures and markets ceramic proppant in competition with some of our products. Imerys, S.A., a competitor based in France (“Imerys”), has ceramic proppant manufacturing facilities in Andersonville and Wrens, Georgia and also competes with some of our products. We are aware of a number of manufacturers in China. Most of these companies produce intermediate-density and low-density ceramic proppants that are marketed both inside and outside of China. Chinese proppant imports into the United States increased beginning in 2010 and 2011, which contributed to an over-supply of ceramic proppant beginning in 2012. However, beginning in early 2015, imports declined significantly or stopped. Our KRYPTOSPHERE product line replaced both CARBOHSP and CARBOPROP. Historically, competition for CARBOHSP and CARBOPROP principally includes ceramic proppant manufactured by Saint-Gobain, Curimbaba, as well as various manufacturers located in China. Our CARBOLITE, CARBOECONOPROP and CARBOHYDROPROP products compete primarily with ceramic proppant produced by Saint-Gobain, Curimbaba and Imerys and with sand-based proppant for use in the hydraulic fracturing of natural gas and oil wells. At this time, there is not in our view a comparable competitor’s product to our mono-mesh KRYPTOSPHERE product line, which is the subject of patent protection. We believe that some of the significant factors that influence a customer’s decision to purchase our ceramic proppant are (i) reservoir and geological characteristics, (ii) price/performance ratio, (iii) on-time delivery performance, (iv) technical support, (v) proppant availability and (vi) the financial status of E Carbo Ceramics
