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, and the The New Business Incubation Center.
The mission of The New Business Incubation Center 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.
