The net sales by segment for the second quarter of FY2019 are as follows:

Energy and Industrial Plants

Sales decreased by 6.5% year on year to ¥30,911 million. When excluding the large-scale shipbuilding construction projects posted in the previous year, we find that demand was solid particularly from petroleum refining and petrochemical companies as well as electricity companies.

Industrial Products

Sales decreased by 1.8% year on year to ¥22,452 million due to slowing demand for fluoropolymer products for semiconductor-related applications as a result of the impact of the US-China trade coflict, as well as sluggish demand for electrical parts. However, demand was strong for sealing materials for infrastructure and for inorganic thermal insulation materials.

Advanced Products

Sales fell by 21.8% year on year to ¥10,352 million due to low demand for semiconductor production equipment.


Sales fell by 1.1% year on year to ¥22,295 million because of the impact of higher amounts of sales following changes to the fiscal periods of some consolidated subsidiaries in the first quarter of the fiscal year 2018. Although overseas demand declined, domestic demand was in line with the previous year.

Building Materials

Sales rose by 0.9% year on year to ¥15,002 million due to the ongoing strength of demand for wrap-type fireproof materials.
