The New York Times reported that preferential customs duties for goods from China, which include video cards, have expired this year. The law was passed by Donald Trump as part of the trade war back in 2018, but it turned out to be postponed until 2021. The main blow will fall on video cards, which are already growing in price.
Duties on goods range from 7.5% to 25%, depending on the category of video cards and other components: motherboards, solid state drives and power supplies. The growth will affect the majority of imported goods.
On the one hand, it may seem that we should not be worried about the increase in duties in the United States, on the other hand, they can form the recommended retail prices, which in turn will affect our market. In addition, the demand from miners, the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and other factors affect the rise in prices for video cards.
