Japanese companies have flexed their technical muscles and shown strong confidence in the growth of the Chinese market at the ongoing China International Import Exhibition.

The products, which are mainly used in the technology and healthcare sectors, have state-of-the-art functions such as mixed reality or MR, metaverse and artificial intelligence. Some of them made their debut in China or Asia on the CIIE platform this year.

Canon, which has participated in the CIIE for five consecutive years, aims to expand new product categories and business in China to make the domestic market the No. 1 regional market by 2035.

Canon, known for its camera business, is expanding its business in healthcare and semiconductor industries and actively exploring opportunities such as MR and 3D modeling, said Kaneko Yusuke, Canon’s chief regional officer for East China headquarters.

“China’s economy is recovering with opportunities, while CIIE is the best platform for us to showcase innovations and connect customers and partners,” said Yusuke at the Canon booth.

Canon showcased MR and 3D modeling innovations at CIIE with smart glasses and cameras that can be used in design, manufacturing, gaming, AR/VR and digital avatars. Some MR machines will be shown outside of Japan for the first time.
