Consequently, Sony Corporation had planned to open research centres in India. 

With the new company, Sony Corporation has now diversified its global R&D; it already has its footprints in Japan, the US, Germany, China, the UK, Belgium, and Sweden. “Sony has always strived to expand and further increase the diversity of its global R&D operations, and the establishment of this new research centre in India will empower Sony to continue fulfilling its purpose – namely, to fill the world with emotion, through the power of creativity and technology. Sony seeks to promote research activities and foster the growth of a diverse pool of engineering talent,” the company said while announcing its plan of establishing research centres in India.
