Let’s see how things have shaped up for the upcoming announcement.
Factors to Consider
Amphenol’s diversified business model lowers the volatility of individual end markets and geographies. Moreover, contributions from acquisitions of Euromicron, Cabelcon, MTS Systems, Onanon, Cablescan, XGiga and EXA Thermometrics are expected to have aided second-quarter results.
Military market sales are expected to have increased sequentially due to the addition of MTS sensors to the product offering, as well as strong demand for interconnect products. 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. Addition of MTS sensors like position, vibration, force and shock in the portfolio is also expected to have increased industrial end-market sales. Strong mobile network sales, driven by investments in next-generation mobile networks and the acquisition of Euromicron, are expected to have benefited Amphenol’s second-quarter results. 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. The Cabelcon buyout is expected to have aided broadband end-market top-line growth. However, Amphenol’s second-quarter 2021 top line is expected to have suffered from supply chain disruptions in the improved automotive end market.
Commercial aerospace is expected to have remained subdued due to pandemic-induced reduction in demand for new aircraft and restrictions on traveling. Additionally, Mobile devices’ sales are expected to have decreased due to seasonality.
