Closed systems also provide water efficiencies and energy savings, which have benefited the industry during water shortages over the past five years.

Industry Report - Starting a New Business Chapter

There are medium barriers for new entrants into the industry. A large initial capital outlay to establish growing operations is the primary barrier to entry.
