US-China trade dispute and its impact to Chinese automotive market

Aug 2018

The recent US-China trade tensions have caught the attention of many global business communities, and the uncertainty of the relationship has resulted in mostly negative outlooks. 

 For the foreseeable future, we think the US-China trade dispute could impact US-China auto relations directly in the following ways 

(but not limited to):

  • Decreased auto imports from the US to China market. 
  • Increased production cost for China and US-based manufacturers.
  • Chinese and US consumers will bear higher cost for imported cars which will damage consumer confidence.
