Forecast for 2021
The global spread of COVID-19 remains at a high level, which is having a significant impact on economic trends in the major economies.
Under these circumstances, the outlook for the global economy in 2021 remains overwhelmingly at a downside risk. Until effective vaccines or drugs are widely distributed, the infection spread of COVID-19 will keep fluctuating, whereby the resumption of normal economic activity will continue to be hindered.
On the other hand, due to the spread of COVID-19, new ways of working, such as remote work and working from home, have begun. As a result, the demand for printers, our core product, has increased significantly. In FY2020, this demand trend has led to significant increases in both sales and profits.
We expect this trend will continue in FY2021. In addition, the global economy will start working together with COVID-19, whereby the automotive business is expected to recover.
That said, there may be environmental changes that cannot be anticipated in the future. We will work mainly on strengthening our internal control systems, reducing costs, and improving quality in order to ensure consistent performance.
