Key Factors to Note

NXP’s robust products, strong customer demand and design win momentum are expected to have continued aiding top-line growth in second-quarter 2021.

The company’s positive outlook toward Automotive, Industrial & IoT and Mobile is likely to have remained a tailwind.

Further, growing momentum across radar, advanced driver assistance systems, battery management and digital clusters businesses is anticipated to have benefited its performance in the quarter under review.

During the quarter, the company incorporated Gallium Nitride technology into the multi-chip module platform to boost 5G energy prospects. Also, it expanded presence in the booming 5G market in India by its recent partnership with Jio Platforms. These are likely to get reflected in the upcoming quarterly results.
