Tariff Update on China’s Imports

May 10, 2019 Tariff increase to 25% scheduled to impact switching and routing hardware, as well as phones.

Costs to end-users on products manufactured in and imported from China are sure to increase. OEMs have not yet committed to a specific cost increase, when that might occur, or specifically what product lines are impacted.

The decision comes as the White House continues to seek ways to tame historically high inflation outside of actions by the Federal Reserve to hike interest rates. Some administration officials and outside economists have identified lifting some of the tariffs updates on China. Aiming to partially ease high prices U.S. consumers are now paying.

Some OEMs moved core production to other countries after the initial 10% was imposed on Chinese goods. The full quantifiable impact is not yet known, but any hardware that is already in the United States is not subject to an increase. Give yourself and your team the opportunity to explore new routes.
