Signify Premium Insight: Fujifilm’s Roadmap to Reality
Published: February 14, 2023
It will soon be the second anniversary of the completion of Fujifilm’s acquisition of Hitachi’s medical imaging business.
The deal, which was first announced in 2019 for a value of $1.55bn, saw Fujifilm bolster its medical imaging portfolio, adding CT and MRI capability and expanding its ultrasound capability to complement Fujifilm’s strong X-ray, endoscopy and IT offerings. By acquiring such capability, Fujifilm aimed to be able to compete more closely with medical imaging’s leading vendors, GE HealthCare, Siemens Healthineers and Philips, allowing the Japanese vendor to tender for large, multi-modality deals.
Integrating one business into another is a long-term process, but, as the second anniversary rolls around, what progress has been made so far?
