Key Factors to Note

The company’s solid momentum across the Test business and recovery in the Industrial Automation business are likely to get reflected in third-quarter results.

Rising semi content and complexity per automobile have been aiding the growth of the test market. This might have remained a tailwind during the quarter.

Growing smartphone unit shipments are expected to have continued driving the mobility segment in the to-be-reported quarter.

Increasing adoption of hard disk drive and system-level test is anticipated to have aided the performance of Storage Test in the quarter under discussion.

Strength in both system-on-a-chip and memory test markets might have been a tailwind for semiconductor test revenues.

Improvement in Wireless Test owing to persistent WiFi six growth and early WiFi seven investments are likely to have aided its quarterly performance.

Also, increasing demand for ultra wideband might have remained a positive factor in driving the company’s LitePoint business.

It has been witnessing strong demand in both flash and DRAM in the Memory test business. This is likely to be reflected in the to-be-reported quarter’s results.

Further, solid adoption of Universal Robots and Mobile Industrial Robots products across various applications is likely to have benefited the Industrial Automation business.

Apart from this, strong automotive, analog and industrial demand is likely to have remained positives in the quarter under review.

Yet, the company has been experiencing shipment delays in automotive and industrial test markets due to a challenging supply environment. This is expected to get reflected in the upcoming quarterly results.
