New Delhi, November 28th, 2016: Fujifilm India Pvt. Ltd. – One of the leading Imaging technology firms in India, today, reported 10% sales growth during the first six months of the current fiscal. Medical Systems, Graphic Arts and Photo Imaging continued to be the major growth drivers for the company.

FY 16 has been a phenomenal year for Fujifilm India with multiple launches of products across categories. In Medical Business, the major contribution came from Fujifilm’s world class Digital X-Ray systems. This year the Company installed its state of the art Amulet Innovality- a highly advanced breast cancer diagnostic machine enabling early detection of breast cancer in two reputed hospitals in the country namely NM Medical in Mumbai and SRMC in Chennai. Apart from this, Fujifilm India installed the FDR Smart f, high-quality, and value for money X-ray system in Kanpur.

In Graphic Arts, Fujifilm managed to capture a 25% Market share in the UV Printing Business post the inauguration of its first Demo Centre for Wide Format Inkjet Printing Technology in India earlier this year.  With Eco Solvent Printing holding 90% market share of the overall wide format Print market in India, it was imperative for Fujifilm too to focus on this market and that’s when the company launched it’s first-ever made in India Vybrant 1800 eco solvent printer in collaboration with local manufacturers. The large format Eco Solvent Printer is driven by the patent FujiFilm technology and has been specifically created for economy usage.

In Photo Imaging, Fujifilm India has gathered much interest for its Instax range of instant cameras ever since its launch last year. The Instax series has redefined photo prints for consumers especially for the youth today by enabling them to obtain high quality photos instantly. The company recently introduced its new products in the Instax range – the Instax Mini 8 Combos including the Festival Box, Party Box, Bundle Pack and the Joy Box at attractive prices. The company also added 6 new cameras to its very popular X-Series range of premium Mirrorless digital cameras.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Yasunobu Nishiyama, Managing Director, Fujifilm India said, “We have seen a consistent and steady double digit growth of 10% during Apr-Sep, 2016 this year. The Indian market is growing significantly and we are certain to achieve greater numbers by the end of this fiscal. I am confident that we will continue to grow and dominate an even larger share in the respective divisions. We are very excited on our India journey and look forward to achieve 20% growth in FY2017.”
