INFORMATION AND ELECTRICS/ELECTRONICS

Overview

In Information, we market polyester beads (PEBs) used as a core component of polymerization toners, along with pulverized toner resins for copiers and printers.

In Electrics/Electronics, we market electrolytes for aluminum electrolytic capacitors used for home appliances, personal computers and electrical components for automobiles, pressure-sensitive adhesives using for electronic components, as well as agents for use in hard disk manufacturing processes.

FY2019 Business Performance

13.5%

In the Information segment, sales were weak due to decreased sales of polyester beads as a core component of polymerization toners due to users’ inventory adjustments, despite flat sales of toner resins for pulverized toners.
In the Electrics/Electronics segment, sales were weak due to weak sales of electrolytes for aluminum electrolytic capacitors, despite brisk sales of adhesives for electronic parts.
As a result, total net sales in this segment decreased by 7.8% year on year, to ¥20,985 million. Operating profit was ¥2,937 million (a decrease of 26.6% year on year).
