Factors to Consider
ASML Holding’s third-quarter results are expected to reflect its portfolio strength, growing investments, expanding position in the memory market and increasing design wins.
Demand for ASML Holding’s products is likely to have strengthened owing to the increasing adoption of advanced nodes in support of the build-up of the digital infrastructure, including growth drivers, such as 5G, AI and high-performance computing solutions.
The growing prospects in semiconductor end markets, megatrends in the electronics industry and increasing lithography intensity might have bolstered demand for ASML’s products and services further.
The rising Installed Base Management sales, new lithography systems units sold and used lithography systems units sold are anticipated to have contributed well.
Additionally, prospects around next-generation technology development, capacity additions at leading-edge nodes, and increasing competitive dynamics and investments in Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) infrastructure are likely to have benefited ASML’s performance across foundry and logic in the quarter under review.
The expanding memory market, especially DRAM, and solid momentum in logic owing to transitions to 5G and AI are likely to have driven ASML’s EUV system revenues in the soon-to-be-reported quarter.
Moreover, the service business of ASML is expected to have performed well in the third quarter, driven by the increasing contribution from EUV service revenues.
The application business of ASML is expected to have continuously gained from the rising need for scanners in EUV and Deep Ultraviolet (DUV) systems in the quarter under review.
However, uncertainties related to the macro environment, including the adverse impact of the pandemic and geopolitical developments on economy, are expected to have been headwinds to this currently Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) player in the to-be-reported quarter.
