Canon projection

“Regarding the second half of the year, as we have a better outlook on procuring semiconductor chips and other parts, we will work to recover production that was delayed due to Shanghai’s COVID lockdowns, and link this increased production volume to sales. Although the pace of recovery in print volume is slightly slower than we expected, print volume is expected to steadily increase as the number of people going to the office recovers. And in the fourth quarter, we expect this to reach a pre-COVID level of around 80%,” said the spokesman of Canon.
