Let’s see how things have shaped up for ON Semiconductor prior to this announcement.

Factors to Consider

Strong automotive and industrial end-markets are expected to have contributed to ON Semiconductor’s second-quarter top-line growth.

Solid momentum in image sensors amid consistent growth in advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and vehicle electrification domains, driven by uptick in global automotive production, are anticipated to have driven automotive segment revenues.

Growing traction in silicon carbide (SiC) and IGBT (or Insulated-Gate Bipolar Transistor) products for electric vehicles is expected to have benefited performance.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues for Automotive end market is pegged at $565 million, which suggests year-over-year growth 72.8%.

The Industrial market is expected to have benefited from strong demand for power modules. The Zacks Consensus Estimate is currently pegged at $415 million for the Industrial/Medical/Mil-Aero end-markets, which suggests an improvement of 19.3% year over year.

Communications end-market revenues are anticipated to have been driven by rapid deployment of 5G. However, weakness in smartphone business might have acted as a headwind. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is currently pegged at $242 million for the Communications end-markets, indicating a fall of 5.1% year over year.

Continued strength in client and server business is anticipated to have added to the top line in the Computing end-market segment. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is currently pegged at $228 million for the Computing end-markets, which indicates an increase of 44.3% year over year.
