Creating solution businesses at the boundaries and in the peripheral areas

Drawing on the knowledge of the Mitsui Chemicals Group, we are taking on the challenge of new possibilities in the New and Next Generation Businesses freshly added to our targeted business domains in the 2025 Long-Term Business Plan. We have already started sowing the seeds to ensure our businesses bear an abundance of fruits in 10 to 20 years’ time.

Basic Information

Mission of the Next Generation Business domain

The mission of our Next Generation Business is to leverage open innovation to create new businesses in our three targeted business domains as well as solution businesses at the boundaries and in the peripheral areas of these three domains. Various initiatives will be implemented through collaboration between each business sector, the New Health Care Business Development Division, the New Mobility Business Development Division, the Next Generation Business Development Division, and the Robot Materials Business Development Division.
The mission of the Next Generation Business Development Division in all of this is to come up with new business models. Underpinned by a “think globally, act locally” policy, the Division aims to create new business models based on the idea of marketing the Group’s knowledge. All of the ongoing projects in the four core fields of agriculture, IoT, energy, and medical originated from cooperation with mainly overseas public organizations, including start-up firms and universities. Moreover, the Division’s Corporate Venturing Department is working to expand open innovation-driven businesses mainly through the creation of new diagnostics and solution businesses owing to the integration of information and materials.
