Factors to Consider
The impacts of ASML Holding’s portfolio strength, growing investments, expanding position in the memory market and increasing design wins are expected to get reflected in the second-quarter results.
Prospects around next-generation technology development, capacity additions at leading-edge nodes, and increasing competitive dynamics and investments in Extreme Ultraviolet (“EUV”) infrastructure are anticipated to have benefited the company’s performance across foundry and logic in the quarter under review.
ASML’s Memory revenues are expected to have increased in the quarter to be reported, driven by healthy demand in data centers, with improving demand for consumer electronics.
Solid momentum in logic, owing to transitions to 5G and AI, is likely to have driven the company’s EUV system revenues in the soon-to-be-reported quarter.
Strong demand for advanced nodes in support of the build-up of digital infrastructure, which includes growth drivers such as 5G, AI and high-performance computing solutions, is expected to have boosted the demand for the company’s products.
The application business of ASML Holding is expected to have continued to gain from the rising need for scanners in EUV and Deep Ultraviolet systems (DUV) in the quarter under review.
The growing momentum in DUV bookings is anticipated to have been another positive.
The service business is expected to have performed well in the second quarter, driven by the increasing contribution from EUV service revenues.
However, uncertainties related to the macro environment — including the economic impact of the pandemic and geopolitical tensions — are expected to have been headwinds for the company in the to-be-reported quarter.
