Kuraray is a Japanese producer of petrochemical intermediates, resins, elastomers, fibres, high performance materials and medical products. The company is split into three business segments: Chemicals and Resins, Fibres and Textiles, and High-Performance Materials, Medical Products and Others.
Kuraray believes that it needs to pursue mergers and acquisitions (M&A) that will supplement management resources for the creation of new businesses as well as midstream and downstream M&A that will accelerate its development activities. One of its key targets is the IT-related industry, which it says is very fast moving.
