How Do We Capitalize on Our Existing Technologies?
Many of Murata's products, such as capacitors and noise suppression products, are already used in the healthcare market. Although these products have penetrated the market because of their performance and reliability, more sophisticated sensor and module products cannot follow the same path. We are still a novice in understanding how these products will fit in the market. Even as a novice marketer, however, we should be able to propose new ideas to customers as an expert in the electronic market. With our expertise in sensors, modules and mobile phones, in particular, we can help healthcare become a natural part of our lifestyle. We have the potential to become a driving force for creating personal and wearable healthcare equipment through our accumulated technological skill in creating smaller, lighter and more energy efficient end products. Although healthcare is a brand new challenge for Murata, we must be able to proffer brand new ideas to our customers in the healthcare industry. By hybridizing technologies nurtured by Murata and its customers, we will be able to make healthcare technology a part of our lives.
