With steady eye on Indian healthcare market, the Indian arm of the Japanese imaging company Fujifilm India Private Limited is set to double its medical system business. “We are growing at 15 to 20 per cent in the (medical systems) segment. My hope is that we would grow more than double in the next five years,” Fujifilm India Managing Director Yasunobu Nishiyama told PTI.
According to PTI, medical system products account for about 50 per cent of the company’s Rs 1,000 crore turnover in India, accounting for about 2 per cent of its global business.
“We want to promote better medical equipment systems in tier II and III cities. The world is going digital and in India too, analogue machines are being changed to digital X- ray,” he told PTI. “Now the demand is very huge, specially in PPP and private hospitals. So we are collaborating with them,” he added.
In Feb, 2017 Fujifilm signed a contract with Pune based KRSNAA diagnostics Pvt Ltd to convert 1000 X-Ray setups from analog to digital across India. The contract comes as a part of tender won by KRSNAA Diagnostics Pvt Ltd from Government of Assam to install Computer Radiography machines and Imagers. As part of the contract, FujiFilm will supply and install 1000 units of FCR Prima and 1200 units of DRYPIX imager.
