of Vision 2030

By further drawing out human creativity and promoting the building of sustainable environments, humans and machines can co-create seamlessly, whereby we will experience diverse abundance.

Such a society is unfolding before our eyes.

Nikon will accelerate co-creation in order to expand even further in new directions.

Aim for Co-Creation

We will accelerate co-creation to expand possibilities for humans and machines.

Previously, humans had a one-directional relationship with machines, simply using them as tools. We will change that relationship, producing value through interaction.

For example, by machines taking over work that is unpleasant for humans, we can spend our time on creative tasks. With machines that support training, we can elicit greater human capacity and potential than ever before.

We will expand possibilities for humans and machines by further advancing a society where humans and machines co-create, causing a chemical reaction in various fields, and giving back to society as a whole.

Nikon’s Strengths

Enable seeing what could not be seen, achieving what was not possible, understanding what was not understood. Moving forward, we will continue our approach of making the impossible possible.

Through over 100 years of history, we have nurtured three strengths. Capability in nanometer-level ultra-high precision manufacturing, such as in semiconductor lithography systems. Brand power to share globally and capability to universalize sophisticated solutions, achieved through digital cameras and so on. Strong support from many stakeholders, including customers, business partners and employees.

We will leverage these strengths to realize seamless human-machine co-creation.

Business Model Advancement

In the future, Nikon will offer customers integrated solutions encompassing end products, services and components, aiming to realize Vision 2030. Centered on three axes, we will diversify ways to provide value, and expand interactions with customers and society. Furthermore, by connecting businesses that were previously independent, we will deliver optimal proposals suited to their aims, while crossing domains.

Steps to Get to Vision 2030

What should Nikon do to expand co-creation by humans and machines? We set mid-term targets for 2025 by backcasting to formulate strategy to get to Vision 2030.

We will move forward with certainty, while further growing the strengths we have nurtured.
