Key Factors to Note

A strong demand environment across Analog Devices’ automation, instrumentation and energy businesses is expected to have benefited its fiscal second-quarter performance in the industrial end market.

Further, growing adoption of renewable energy in delivering emission-free transportation across the world is expected to have continued boosting the demand for Analog Devices’ control and sensing technologies as well as monitoring and power conversion technologies in the quarter under review.

Additionally, strong demand for the company’s battery management system (BMS) technology is likely to have continued aiding its performance in the automotive end market during the fiscal second quarter.

Analog Devices introduced BMS circuit (IC) and automotive audio bus (A2B) on Volvo’s fully-electric SUV,which might have supported the upcoming quarterly results.

Moreover, growing proliferation of hearables, wearables and home entertainment might have been other positives.

Further, increasing adoption of the company’s precision signal chain and power technologiesin 5G radio architecture might have contributed well to top-line growth during the to-be-reported quarter.

Additionally, introduction of a full-featured wireless platform for the 5G O-RAN ecosystem is likely to have been another tailwind.

This apart, robust wireless and wireline businesses of the company are anticipated to have contributed well to revenue generation from the communication market in the quarter under review.

In addition, the well-performing cabin electronics business, and growing momentum across active noise cancellation and A2B bus deployments might have beenother positives.

However, mounting expenses, communication troughs and a constrained supply environment owing to the ongoing pandemic situationare likely to have been major headwindsin the quarter under review.
