Trade relations between the US and China saw significant changes in 2018 as the US government imposed a 10% tariff on ICT products imported from China, including servers. With a long development history in the Chinese market, 90% of the servers provided by Taiwanese server vendors are manufactured in China. Amid intensified tensions between the US and China and the emergence of national security concerns derived from China's spy chips, the development of the server industry has become increasingly important.
