Amphenol’s diversified business model lowers the volatility of individual-end markets and geographies. Moreover, contributions from acquisitions like Onanon, Cablescan, XGiga and EXA Thermometrics are expected to have aided first-quarter results.
Military market sales are expected to have increased sequentially. Accelerating adoption of electronics in defense equipment systems and the overall favorable defense spending environment are trends that have been benefiting Amphenol in the past few quarters. These are expected to have continued in the to-be-reported quarter. Amphenol’s first-quarter 2021 top line is expected to have benefited from higher sales to an improved automotive end-market. Further, strong mobile network sales driven by investments in next-generation mobile networks are expected to have benefited Amphenol’s first-quarter results. Further, Information Technology and Data Communications sales are expected to have benefited from increased demand for Amphenol’s solutions required to accelerate bandwidth capacity expansions in order to support ongoing work-from-home and online-learning waves. However, commercial aerospace is expected to have remained subdued due to pandemic-induced reduction in demand for new aircraft and restrictions on traveling. Industrial market sales are also expected to moderate sequentially. Additionally, Mobile devices’ sales are expected to have decreased due to seasonality. What Our Model Says
