New tariffs on auto glass will go in effect this month

“Chinese materials used in the auto glass and glazing industries will be subject to a 10 percent tariff effective September 24, 2018. The Trump Administration announced a finalized list of $200 billion worth of tariffs on Chinese goods Monday. Starting January 1, 2019, the new tariffs will increase to 25 percent.

The tariff list includes:

  • Various float glass products;
  • Glass mirrors;
  • Glass frit; and
  • Laminated safety glass.”

The trade war is in full effect these days. Threats from both China and the U.S. to levy additional tarrifs on one other could soon effect each economy. It remains to be seen just how much of an impact this will have on the U.S. auto glass industry. We can only hope a resolution will be made in the not too distant future.
