One of the strengths of Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) is its diversification. Regardless of complex global marketplaces, a developer can maintain high sales levels by offering diverse portfolios of innovative solutions. As a result, Corning’s gross margins could grow under the current favorable pricing environment.
At the moment, Corning Incorporated is in recovery mode in all end markets: sales of optical technologies, environmental solutions, special materials, etc., are growing. As a result, the company is benefiting from the construction of 5G networks, the increased use of Gorilla Glass, and ceramics in mobile phones by Samsung and Apple. Furthermore, Corning Incorporated is a growing player in the panels and filters industries for large-scale television.
Nevertheless, Corning Incorporated (GLW) has been faced with intense competition from manufacturers in China and India for several years. Thus it has come under pressure from maintaining its profit margins. Corning Incorporated has favorable pricing at the moment. Based on sales levels at the company itself, there is a shortage of glass supply, leading to increased demand and positive supply dynamics.
Due to the combination of supply chain challenges facing competitors, the pricing environment is likely to remain favorable for the foreseeable future. This will likely lead to increased gross profit for Corning Incorporated in the coming quarters. As the competition competencies increase and the risks increase, the pricing environment can’t be guaranteed to remain favorable for long.
