IMPORTANCE OF FAN

Department of commerce IUB 8 ROLL # 03, 31, 54


Project Management SHAHID FAN Industry

Fan is a daily use item. Its utility increases, especially in the summer season. The industry is
producing about 5 to 6 million fans per annum and meeting successfully the local as well as
the export demand. Pakistan is a manufacturer of good quality fans. All the fan
manufacturing units have been set up in the private sector. The fan industry is mainly
clustered in the two major cities namely, Gujarat, Gujranwala, whereas some units are also
operating in Lahore and Karachi. This cluster meets the entire need of the country producing
fans with extended product types, models, designs, and colors.

The fan industry is mainly clustered in the four major cities namely, Gujarat,
Gujranwala, Lahore and Karachi. Fan industry is producing about seven (7) million fans per
annum. Out of the total production, approximately 30 per cent fans consist of pedestals, 7
per cent brackets and the remaining 63 per cent are ceiling fans. The industry belongs to the
light engineering industry category, and is one of the industries that existed at the time of
independence. Besides small and medium units, a few units are quite large and have
integrated system i.e. from motor winding to high-pressure dies casting. These units are the
main players in the export field. Sales are also fairly concentrated with five large firms in
Gujarat and two in Gujranwala, accounting for 40% of total industry sales.

The industry is producing a variety of products in different sizes and designs. The major
products are: ceiling, pedestal, table, table-cum-pedestal fans, circumatic fans, wall bracket,
exhaust fans and propellers. Most of the raw materials used by the fan industry are directly or
indirectly imported from different countries. Some of the raw materials used in the
manufacturing of a fan are: electric steel sheets, aluminum, enameled copper wire, ball
bearing, steel rod and PVC

Project Brief:
The project involves purchase of minor parts, manufacturing the main parts (motor winding)
and then packing and marketing the product under a brand. The branded product will be
positioned in competition with other branded and unbranded products. It is suggested that
the company should initially introduce its products in the rural or small town markets where
brand awareness is easy to make and heavy advertisement budget is not required

Opportunity Rationale:
This trend has always created a strong demand for fan in Pakistan and made it the world's
main exporter of fan.

During the review period, Fans are a part of daily life, and hot areas generate the most sales.
Hot areas drove sales growth because the most part of country is very hot season of
summer. Consequently, companies have to focus on hot areas to maintain their market
shares. Throughout the review period, sales of Ceiling fan & Pedestal fan were very dynamic
as their prices are low and easy to use. Introducing affordable brand in such areas would
attract sales. Such a market could also be explored with low cost and high product quality.

Economic Rationale:
Economically the project is also rationale. The availability of raw material and labor is very
cheap and easily available in the market. The supplier network is strong and providing
services on time and on economically rational rate.

Market Entry Timing:


This business can be started in any month of the year as it is used throughout the year. The
demand of the fan will be raised in the country as the population of the country raises, its
demand will automatically raising due to increasing heat in the atmosphere.

Business Legal Status:


It is recommended that this project should be started as partnership as it does not involve
heavy investment. Moreover, less complications and costs are involved in forming,
administering and running the partnership business.

COMPETITIVE ANALYSIS

PORTERS FIVE-FORCES MODEL

Potential
New Entrants

Bargaining Bargaining
Intra-Industry Rivalry
Power of Power of
FAN Products
Suppliers Buyers

Substitute
Products

The Bargaining Power of Buyers:


The power of buyers is the impact that customers have on a producing industry. In general,
when buyer power is strong, the relationship to the producing industry is near to what an
economist terms a monopsony - a market in which there are many suppliers and one buyer.
Under such market conditions, the buyer sets the price. In reality few pure monopsonies
exist, but frequently there is some asymmetry between a producing industry and buyers.

Department of commerce IUB 23 ROLL # 03, 31, 54


Project Management SHAHID FAN Industry
The bargaining power of the buyers is low in the country. Because what so ever is producing
by the companies it is accepted by the consumers. There is no involvement of the consumer
in deciding the design & Price of fan.

The Bargaining Power of Suppliers:


A Fan producing industry requires raw materials - labor, components, and other supplies.
This requirement leads to buyer-supplier relationships between the industry and the firms
that provide it the raw materials used to create products. Suppliers, if powerful, can exert an
influence on the producing industry, such as selling raw materials at a high price to capture
some of the industry's profits.

Many of the sellers of the raw material are in Gujarat and Gujranwanla fan cluster. If any of
the suppliers raises its prices, we can shift to another supplier.

Barriers to Entry / Threat of Entry:


It is not only incumbent rivals that pose a threat to firms in an industry; the possibility that
new firms may enter the industry also affects competition. In theory, any firm should be able
to enter and exit a market, and if free entry and exit exists, then profits always should be
nominal. In reality, however, industries possess characteristics that protect the high profit
levels of firms in the market and inhibit additional rivals from entering the market. These are
barriers to new entry. There are no barriers to entry in the fan manufacturing industry,
because the machinery, labor and raw material is readily and easily available in the country.
The retaliation level of the companies in the industry is very low. Because the companies
have generations of the loyal customers

Rivalry:
The market structure of the fan industry is oligopolistic. All the companies in the industry are
charging the same prices against their products. If any of the company enhanced the prices
of the fan, all the companies followed the same path. All the firms are competing on the basis
of the huge marketing campaigns in the media.

Threat of Substitutes:
In Porter's model, substitute products refer to products in other industries. A threat of
substitutes exists when a product's demand is affected by the price change of a substitute
product. A product's price elasticity is affected by substitute products - as more substitutes
become available, the demand becomes more elastic since customers have more
alternatives. A close substitute product constrains the ability of firms in an industry to raise

Department of commerce IUB 24 ROLL # 03, 31, 54


Project Management SHAHID FAN Industry
prices. The direct competitors are the existing industries that are manufacturing same fans
and charging almost same prices.

MARKET ANALYSIS
There are no exact figures available as to what is the total number of units, how many are
operational, what is the total installed capacity is, and what the operational capacity is.
According to the industry sources (including manufacturers and vendors) there is a
substantial demand for quality fans on a large scale. Also, there is room for new entrants who
want to manufacture the quality products, using the latest technology.

Fan industry contributes Rs 1.5 billion to the GDP of the country. The total capital
investment in this sector is Rs 3-3.5 billion. The industry has an installed capacity of 5-6
million fans per year. The current capacity utilization is around 50%. At present, total fan
production stood at 2.5-3 million fans per year. The volume of exports has reached around
$4 million US in recent years. The industry generates annual employment for around 25,000
workers. Pakistan is also one of the major exporters of fans to international market.

Global fan trade is classified on the basis of energy consumption. The fans that
consume less than 125 watts of energy (SITC 74341) are generally referred to as domestic
fans and the fans that that consume over 125 watts (SITC 74343) are classified as
industrial fans. Pakistan has earned $ 3.896 mn from exports of domestic fans whereas it
has earned $ 0.104 Mn. from exports of industrial fans. In the local market as well as in the
international trade of Pakistan domestic fans are larger component so it is reasonable to
assume that whatever happens to this particular category after MFN or Free Trade with India
is applicable to whole of the fan industry. Pakistan exports fans to Bangladesh, Saudi
Arabia, United Arab Emirates (UAE) and some EU countries. About 80% of Pakistan
domestic fans exports are concentrated in these countries. While some companies are also
exploring the possibilities of exports to US but main restriction of quality standard of UL is
creating problems but some firms are preparing to enter into that market. Compared with the
trade of the rest of the world, Pakistan neither exports fans to India nor import this product
from India. One reason for this no- trade situation is that both Pakistan and India are self
sufficient in fan and compete in the international market rather than exploring for prospects of
trade creation within each other. On the other hand, India exports fans to other countries with
the bulk of the share now going to European Markets.

Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) constitute an important dimension of this fast changing
globalizing world. Both the developed and the developing countries are entering or are in the
process of entering into regional and bilateral free trade agreements in order to promote
trade and economic growth. The experience of the European Union (EU), North American
Free Trade Association (NAFTA), clearly indicates that there is a strong correlation between
regional trade and economic growth. Encouraged by the success of this global trend,
Pakistan and India have also started exploring the possibility of promoting free trade in the

Department of commerce IUB 25 ROLL # 03, 31, 54


Project Management SHAHID FAN Industry
region and are working closely toward establishing a South Asia Preferential Trade Area
(SAPTA) aimed at reviving regional trade and growth in the region. If that happened the low
cost fan will provide the Pakistan more revenues and ultimate bright chances for the industry.
The current situation of industry is as under:

CURRENT SITUATION:

Currently there are 350 fan manufacturing companies situated in Gujarat and Gujranwala fan
cluster. From this cluster there are 2 major companies G.F.C. and Pak Fan. The first
company was export award winner during last 8 years, and the second one is current export
award winner of 2009 with a 690 million profit. The demand of fan is increasing 20% annually
in export and 15% in domestic sales. According to the final report of TDA the export of fan
increase by $ 782000 in 2007-2008 from $191000 to $ 973000.

The government of Pakistan is providing facilities to this industry. The following steps are
recently taken by Govt.:

Government establishes FDI (Fan Development Institute) to promote the new


technology to this sector.
Government is financing FDI to produce skilled labor.
TDAP & Ministry of Science is also taking steps to promote the fan industry.

Operating Profit 34.98% 45.61% 49.92%
Net Profit 34.06% 33.52% 35.52%

The commentary on the above the ratios are as under:

CURRENT RATIO: 2.82 4.63 6.82

The current ratio trend is increasing in the future years by 2 in each year. We
should have to check it out with comparing with the industry average. The most
of our cash is now going to be blocked in our inventories & account receivables.
We should check it out and retain it close to 2:1 or 3:1. it also means that our
current assets are increasing, other words our inventories of raw material &
finished goods and account receivables are also increasing. We should check
their balance and manage them in an effective manner.

CASH RATIO: 2.29 3.99 6.06

The cash ratio also shows increasing trend and good liquidity position of the
business in near future. The increasing cash also requires attention, why we are
retaining so much cash instead of its further investment. It is also good for
business as it increases the credibility of the business. The excess cash help us to
expand our business and to explore new investment opportunities.

LIQUIDITY RATIO: 2.45 4.25 6.43

Department of commerce IUB 46 ROLL # 03, 31, 54


Project Management SHAHID FAN Industry
The liquid ratio is also going to be increase. The increasing trend shows good
solvency position of a business. It will attract the stakeholders to the industry;
enhance the relationship with the Supplier and creditors.

GROSS PROFIT RATIO: 37.97% 48.00% 52.12%

The gross profit ratio also shows increasing trend. The increasing margin trend is
beneficial for the business. The comparison with the industry averages and with
competitors gives us insight in our weakness and strengths. If we check it, it
shoes the increasing performance of the business.

OPERATING PROFIT 34.98% 45.61% 49.92%


RATIO:

The increasing trend in operating profit ratio is not same as Gross profit ratio.
Although there is increasing trend in this ratio but we have to check our Admin,
Selling & General expenses. We should have to control over them & check them
as per their requirement & their benefit cost ratio; if the benefits of these
expenses are less than their cost then we have to decrease them.

NET PROFIT RATIO: 34.06% 33.52% 35.52%

The increasing trend in net profit is not so much satisfactory. The debt burden &
interest payments affect it, but as the debt burden decrease down it shows
increase from 3rd year.

DEBT/ TOTAL EQUITY RATIO: 61.03% 29.83% 18.01%

The debt to total equity ratio shows decreasing trend that is beneficial for the
owners that the business investment proportion is now shifting towards them. As
the new profit is re-invested in the business, the total equity shows more
increasing trend. The gradual payment of the debt also decreases the numerator.
And ratio shows decrease in the next years. Means the owners share is increasing
& outsiders claim is going to be decrease. The overall increase in the GP Ratio,
Net Profit Ratio, Liquid Ratio and Cash Ratio increases the credibility of the
industry. The deal with fund providers in the future gives good results & we can
start the expansion easily.

SWOT ANALYSIS
The SWOT analysis of the industry is as under:
1-Strength:

Extensive labor is available


Produces at lower cost
Capacity of Production
Self Sufficient
Machinery is available
Special industrial zone is established

2-Weaknesess:

Ball bearing is an important part that ensures smooth running and noiseless working
of an electric fan.

Like ball bearings, electric steel sheet (ESS) is also a major item in fan manufacturing.
It determines the quality, performance, durability and electricity consumption of a
fan .Due to ESS shortage and high prices, fan manufacturers are using Mild Steel
Sheet (MSS) the motors manufactured from this material are not of good quality and
use more electricity.

Lack of political framework: (no recognition at policy level).


Lack of ownership & commitment of agencies involved; took almost 2 years to
inculcate vision of this change mgmt exercise

Resource mobilization was the major issue to get short-term wins.

Lack of articulation culture and empire building attitude at all levels.

Too much high prices of import raw materials.


o Weak research and development
o Weak technology

Department of commerce IUB 48 ROLL # 03, 31, 54

o No innovation in designs
o Cost of imported raw material is high
o Lack of policy framework
o Low capital-output ratios
o Unskilled labor

3-Opportunities:

Environmental changes
WTO will allow to export more
Potential markets like US & EU could be explored
Increase in demand with increase in population
Industrial Fans could be focused

4-Threats:

No focus on industry
Technological shifts
Quality of Fans
Shortage of energy

STRATEGIC RECOMMENDATIONS
Initially, the product should be launched in the local market with branding
concept in mind. Ceiling fan & pedestal fan have shown tremendous growth in
the last few years. The company should focus to capture the market of this
product first by aggressive marketing campaign. The preferred mode of
distribution is going directly to the wholesalers. There is an option of having no
involvement of any distributor between the manufacturer and the wholesaler in
the city where manufacturing is being done.

By giving healthier profit margins to the wholesalers, the wholesalers will hence
promote the product. This strategy is important to introduce such a new product
and to create an extensive distribution and sales channel. The company will later
expand into other cities through a distributor network.

capital and expenses may not be recovered.

The venture's actual revenue will be tracked against projections on a month-to-


month basis. If net profitability is not in-line with forecasts, management and
operational adjustments will be made to address the issues.

If the venture is undercapitalized and requires more working capital, the owner
will consider bringing on investment partners. The owner will also review the
return-on-investment for personally providing more paid-in capital.

In the event that net profitability cannot be attained, the owner will take the
following sequential steps to exit the venture:

1. The owner will attempt to sell the venture outright to a suitable buyer.

2. If a buyer cannot be found, the owner will liquidate all viable assets.

3. Capital raised through asset liquidation will be used to reduce possible debt. All
debt will be negotiated prior to settlement.

4. If debts cannot be eliminated, the owner will discuss corporate bankruptcy


options with legal counsel.

RECOMMENDATIONS
After the final study of whole fan industry situation the following points
are recommended:

If the government really wants to increase exports of fan, custom duties on raw materials
should be lowered to a reasonable level.

Pakistan Standard Institute's procedure (PSI) should be simplified and the latest technical
laboratory should be set-up to test the fans.

An institute for labor training should immediately be established with the help of PEFMA.

Fan industry has been a neglected one by the government while it should be fully recognized
like any other export-oriented industry of Pakistan.

An urgent need in big companies to establish research departments within their factory
premises for innovation and to improve designs of fans according to the requirements of
international buyers.

Government should rationalize custom duties on fan raw material i.e., it should be lowered
to a reasonable level.

Government should sponsor exclusive delegations of the industry for visit to African
countries, Indian occasion including Australia, Indonesia and Philippine, South America
and Caribbean island countries.

HR development training awareness on ISO 9000 quality manufacturing standards needs to


be patronized to overcome the lack of facilities.

Ministry of science and technology with cluster council project and FDI to provide technical
extensive facilities for the local industries community.

Director training, export promotion bureau should established his camp office in Gujrat.

Japan the major competitor , after the implementation of WTO it is likely that Japan will
move towards heavy industry and Pakistan will get a chance to explore more and it will
enhance exporting of fans as well.

WTO will have negative impact if it does not improve its quality of labour and does not
implementation new technology.

As the splits and ACs are being purchased by peoples who can afford it.

CONCLUSION

It has great potential but needs consideration by government.

The recommendations should be implemented.

The problem should be solved.

PSI should be provided incentives and encouraged.
