Is the business more than just You ?
What happens to the company when you are not there ?
IP is all very well, but if it is a tech company then IP can date, and if those that have the knowledge behind the products are no longer there, then what real value is there in the company ?

Good questions, a regular product could easliy have those issues for sure.
The good thing about a specialized niche market product is the IP changes much much slower. This is why you always have an active R&D dept and invest 10% back into that.

Niche products are great, for example, say you make a diamond coated deep core drilling bit. The technology hardly changes, the IP is good for a long time, hardly any competitors. How to make it? -Well thats the catch.
