“Demand in the lighting market remained sluggish in July, but price decline has not been observed yet”, says LEDinside analyst Terri Wang. It is worth noting that Trump administration unveiled the plan to impose additional tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods on July 10th. The announced product list included more than ten categories of LED package and LED lighting products with high value. Particularly, the export value of the major lighting products in the list has reached US$5 billion in 2017. So far, the impacts of the US-China trade war on LED packaging manufacturers are not yet noticeable, but manufacturers with plants outside China may be benefited in the long term since orders could be transferred there to avoid the tariffs.
