Panasonic’s Move From Mobiles to Car Components Seems to Be Paying Off

Tech News

Japan’s Panasonic lifted its outlook for earnings this year after reporting a 23 percent jump in third-quarter operating profit on healthy sales of car components and factory automation equipment.

The strong result underscores Panasonic’s shift away from the price competition of smartphones and other lower-margin consumer products, reinventing itself as a provider of automotive batteries and components, as well as automation equipment.

Panasonic, the exclusive battery cell supplier for Tesla‘s mass-market Model 3 sedan, raised its profit forecast for the year ending March to JPY 350 billion (roughly Rs. 20,500 crores) from JPY 335 billion (roughly Rs. 19,500 crores), in line with market estimates.
