JetFan Technology Limited (JetFan Ltd) has been established to develop and market commercial applications for an innovative fan impeller ("fan blade") technology - the JetFanTm. Several market applications have been identified for the new technology, including compact electronic equipment cooling; heating, ventilation and cooling; and domestic appliances. The chosen launch market is the compact electronic equipment cooling segment.
This plan establishes a platform to commercialize the impeller technology in the global market by seeking strategic alliances with leading fan manufacturers in the compact electronic equipment cooling market. This market currently has an annual production rate of at least 350 million impellers, with growth of the market expected to reach 652 million in year five. JetFan Ltd expects to acquire a 2.85 percent market share during this period.
The trend toward miniaturization, combined with more powerful computer chips, creates the demand for smaller, more efficient fans. JetFan Ltd is uniquely positioned to capitalize on this demand. The JetFan's competitive advantages over conventional fans include significantly greater air flow for a given resistance and diameter, making it very compact and therefore ideal for use in compact electronic equipment. The JetFan also emits less noise and is able to operate at a lower RPM therefore utilizing less energy. Operating at a wider range of RPMs, the JetFan allows fan manufacturers to reduce the range of impellers kept in inventory.
These advantages will be sustained by the web of intellectual property built around the technology that protects both the impeller design and the method of manufacture. Furthermore, brand equity will be built around the "JetFanTm" and "JetFan RevolutionTm" trade marks.
JetFan Ltd will establish itself as a fan impeller manufacturer. The company will supply its strategic alliance partners with impellers for assembly into complete fan units. This allows JetFan Ltd to focus on its core competencies of impeller design and manufacture.
