First and foremost, nearly 90% of laptops are imported to the United States in China, with Chongqing as their main industrial city for these products. If other production bases are missing a similar scale with highly integrated supply chains for flexible purchasing, China will suffer a terrible hit in exports if tariffs start to fly immediately, according to TrendForce.
