Digital Appliance BusinessBrilliant innovation you never expected, but come to rely on at home, everyday.
Samsung Electronics is relentless in our efforts to deliver innovative products and experiences that maximize user convenience and make the lives of consumers better. In 2016, we saw an increase in sales throughout Asia in addition to revenue growth across premium appliance markets in North America, Europe, and Korea. Most of all, Samsung’s market share ranked first in the US, a key market for home appliance brands. This year, we launched innovative products that shifted market paradigms, like the FamilyHub refrigerator, AddWash washing machine, and WindFree air conditioner. They continue to garner positive feedback from our consumers. We also focused on strengthening and expanding our business with a new built-in lineup and system air conditioners. In 2017, we will continue to bring real value to consumers by launching differentiated products and technologies. Our ground-breaking and consumer-focused products will challenge routines and stereotypes, leading the market by delivering true innovation and convenience to our valued consumers. We will maintain our market leadership position with premium, innovative products like the FamilyHub refrigerator featuring advanced voice recognition technology that is guaranteed to improve family communication, the FlexWash washing machine which can support two simultaneous or separate washes of different clothing capacities and fabric types, and the WindFree air conditioner for staying cool without direct wind. In addition, we are continuing to invest in revolutionizing products and distribution methods for our high-growth, high-profit B2B business.
Health & Medical Equipment BusinessProviding enhanced Access, Accuracy, and Efficiency, Samsung's diagnostic equipment aims to deliver new healthcare experience to medical professionals and patients.
We both develop and retail diagnostic imaging devices along with diagnostic ultrasound systems, digital radiography systems, mobile CT scanners, and in-vitro diagnostics that are available in a multitude of global medical institutions. In 2016, our premium mobile digital X-ray GM85 made its debut with unprecedented usability features: its compact design reduced its weight by 40% from existing models and its battery life was extended to significantly improve user convenience. This was all made possible through the combination of our advanced technology and design capabilities. In addition to this, Samsung presented diverse products in the market by using its own unique innovative technology, such as HS60 and HS50 that represent our high-end and mid-range ultrasound systems with distinctive high-quality imaging and intuitive design features, and the PT10V, a blood tester for animals with streamlined procedures and an expedited testing time. In April 2017, an upgraded version of the WS80A with Elite, featuring intelligent and accurate imaging software developed by long-established capabilities in OB/GYN, was released with an integrated diagnostic solution that supports life-long health for women. Our HS40 that targets the mass-market was also launched in the same month and was credited as a product design awardee honored at the ‘International Forum Design Award 2017’.
