Few Positives Seen in Trump’s $250 Billion Tariffs for EMS Companies

  • The latest round of US tariffs is a 10% levy on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods, which is set to rise to 25% by the end of the year. That’s on top of the $50 billion worth of tariffs on Chinese goods that went into effect in August. EMS companies that MMI has interviewed are unanimous in their condemnation of the proposed tariffs, which by all accounts seem likely to achieve little other than to punish US EMS companies, raise prices on electronic assemblies, and threaten layoffs and thereby cause unemployment.
