Kyocera Group's Value Creation Model

The essence of Amoeba Management, a management control method to realize the Kyocera Philosophy, is to quickly respond to trends of the times and changes in market conditions, and flexibly change its organization. As we live in a world of growing uncertainties, we will strive to flexibly respond to environmental changes like amoeba, and continue to deliver leading-edge products and create new values.

Examples of Providing Value to Society

With the aim of fulfilling societal needs, the Kyocera Group will incorporate elemental technologies developed since its founding into our practice of Amoeba Management, combining them with innovative technologies to provide new value to society.

Case:01 Transportation infrastructure business for a society in which everyone can travel safely

As we anticipate a future of autonomous driving systems, we will focus on the need for infrastructure development that allows people to travel in safety and security.
Utilizing our experience in developing communications infrastructure for Japan's PHS network and the international iBurst System, as well as our core wireless handset technologies, we will conduct autonomous driving demonstrations involving rapid-transit buses (BRT), signal-cooperative roadside units, and smart-pole intelligent transport systems (ITS). These initiatives will extend to safe- driving support, disaster support, and accident prevention at railroad crossings

Case:02 GaN application business using environmentally friendly materials

Gallium nitride (GaN) is attracting increased attention as a key material to enable a low-carbon society. Having long investigated GaN and other advanced materials, the Kyocera Group in January 2021 completed its acquisition of U.S.-based Soraa Laser Diode, Inc. (now KYOCERA SLD Laser, Inc.), which develops high-efficiency, high-power lasers. Combined with our technologies in crystal growth and semiconductor packaging, we will develop high-performance laser devices and expand their range of application to fields such as high-speed optical communications and optical-fiberbased power supplies

Case:03 Digital textile printing business to reduce environmental burdens related to apparel manufacturing

Conventional printing processes in apparel production use large amounts of water, and the resulting wastewater contributes to environmental pollution.We are working toward mitigating this problem by developing environmentally friendly inkjet printing systems that produce no wastewater.
Through application of digital print solutions that use our proprietary inks, inkjet printheads, and control technologies, we are developing sustainable printing systems that not only reduce environmental impact but also increase apparel manufacturing productivity.
