From the year 2000, Fujifilm has faced a drastic reduction in the demand for our core business, photographic film. In response to this, the entire company united in its efforts to promote corporate reforms. Through these efforts, we have been able to transform ourselves into a company engaged in business activities in several fields with the potential for future growth. We are now operating in the Healthcare field, which covers life sciences, medical systems, bio CDMO, pharmaceuticals, regenerative medicine, and other businesses; the Highly Functional Materials field, comprising business areas like display film and semiconductor materials; the Recording Media field, which includes magnetic tape for computers; the Graphic Systems & Inkjet field, where inkjet digital presses are one of several lines of business; the Optical Device & Electronic Imaging Products field, covering digital cameras, broadcast lenses, and more; and the Photo Imaging field, which includes our "instax" instant photo systems.

In the Healthcare field, a major growth area, we are further expanding the scope of our business activities. Our Life Sciences businesses in functional skin-care cosmetics and nutritional supplements are just two examples of our ongoing endeavors. We are also pushing ahead with initiatives in the Medical Systems business, which covers endoscopes, other diagnostic equipment, and medical IT systems; the Bio CDMO business, which involves process development and manufacturing activities for biopharmaceuticals on a contract basis; and in our Pharmaceuticals business, including anti-cancer agents and drugs for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. All these activities are being undertaken with the overarching aim of growing as a comprehensive healthcare company that covers prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

Since our founding, we have developed a formidable foundation in leading-edge, proprietary technologies through our efforts in the photography sector. Ranging from advances in fine chemistry, involving the control of elaborate chemical reactions, to mechatronics, optics, electronics, and a wide array of manufacturing technologies, our distinctive technological resources cover a broad range of fields. Combined with state-of-the-art AI and IoT technologies, our array of assets will help us create groundbreaking products and services, accelerate business growth, and make a difference in creating solutions that contribute to the resolution of a wide range of societal issues.  

We appreciate all your understanding and unwavering support as we continue to create new value, striving to fulfill the “NEVER STOP” ideal in our constant pursuit of new challenges.
