Among the target countries, India is positioned as an important market where substantial growth is anticipated. In 2011, the Group established Toray International India Pvt. Ltd. in Mumbai as a trading subsidiary, and parent Toray in the same year also opened a representative office in Gurgaon, which became a local subsidiary Toray Industries (India) Pvt. Ltd. in 2014.
