Targeting Rs.1,000 crore in revenue in India from its Smart Factory solutions in the next three years, Japanese electronics major Panasonic has announced it has integrated its welding business and SMT (Surface Mount Technology) equipment business into one Smart Manufacturing Solutions company.

The smart factory solutions proposition will enable Panasonic to deliver high value-added smart solutions and services along with world-class hardware to the manufacturing industry, the company said in a statement late on Wednesday.

The company targets to achieve Rs 1,000 crore in revenue from its smart factory business in the next three years in India, with solutions and digital manufacturing expected to contribute 15 per cent to the total smart factory business revenue.

“India is adopting new-age technologies such as 5G, IoT, AI and others at a rapid pace and we will only see more investment in these technologies as we move forward,” said Hiroyuki Aota, President and CEO, Global Panasonic Smart Factory Solutions.

“To be able to cater to these growing demands, having the right and smart capabilities in manufacturing will be key, and this is what we are addressing today,” he added.
