Growing demand in automotive and computing markets is expected to have continued driving the company’s performance in Asia. Also, demand in automotive and industrial sectors might have benefited its business in Europe.

Factory automation and accelerated residential development, governmental investments in power generation and transmission systems as well as alternative energy systems are expected to have proliferated the industrial sector in the quarter under review.

Further, rising demand for 5G base station equipment is anticipated to have propelled the telecom sector.

In addition, the medical and consumer market sectors might have continued registering growth in the second quarter.

Solid demand for its capacitors in power transmission and electro cars in China might have been a tailwind for the company in the to-be-reported quarter.

Also, robust Optoelectronic offerings are anticipated to have contributed well to the top line in the second quarter.

Further, growing adoption of MOSFETs in automotive is expected to have benefited the top line in the quarter under review.
