Key Factors to Note

The company’s robust products, strong customer demand and design win momentum are expected to have persistently aided top-line growth in third-quarter 2021.

A continuous increase in wafer supply is likely to have driven its quarterly performance in the to-be-reported quarter.

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

Strength in its Trimension Ultra-Wideband platform is likely to have remained a positive factor in the soon-to-be-reported quarter.

During the quarter, Xiaomi MIX4’s “Point to connect” capabilities were powered by NXP’s Trimension UWB technology. This is likely to have supported its quarterly performance.

Additionally, the company partnered with MOTER Technologies to provide a safe data exchange platform that combines its S32G2 vehicle network processors with the latter’s insurance data science expertise and software. This is expected to have aided NXP in the quarter under discussion.

Further, the company’s positive outlook toward Automotive, Industrial & IoT, and Communication infrastructure and Other might get reflected in the upcoming quarterly results.

Yet, the global coronavirus-driven economic crisis has been raising volatility in the semiconductor market. This might pose a challenge to the upcoming quarterly results.

Also, supply chain constraints in all end markets served are likely to have continued affecting its quarterly performance.

Further, the company’s negative outlook toward Mobile is expected to get reflected in the to-be-reported quarterly results.
