The business has its own experienced and qualified sales force which includes worth to sales by training the business's network of 250 distributors for facilitating the sale of adhesives. Solarcity Rapid Innovation believes in exclusive circulation as suggested by the reality that it has actually chosen to sell through 250 suppliers whereas there is t a network of 10000 distributors that can be checked out for broadening reach by means of suppliers. The company's reach is not restricted to The United States and Canada only as it also enjoys worldwide sales.

Nevertheless, the fact stays that the provider does not have much impact over the purchaser at this moment particularly as the buyer does not show brand recognition or price sensitivity. When it comes to the adhesive market while the buyer and the manufacturer do not have a significant control over the actual sales, this shows that the distributor has the greater power.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand name commitment and the ease of entry revealed by foreign Japanese competitors in the instantaneous adhesive market shows that the market enables ease of entry.
