"Our business imaging solution division contributes about 4-5 per cent. We plan to increase it to 10 per cent in the next two-three years," he added.

Canon also said with the launch of its new products, the company is aiming to take its rental business, wherein the company leases out its products to corporate houses and organisations, to Rs 100 crore by next years.
"This year the rental business will be contributing Rs 60 crore to Canon India's turnover. We expect the rental business to contribute Rs 100 crore as we target Rs 1,000 crore revenues next year," Bharadwaj said.
With the new product launches, the company will now have 180 products in its portfolio, of which 80 are in the business imaging segment.
