Major Chinese TV-makers including TCL Corp. and Hisense Co. Ltd. are expected to suffer a serious blow from the punitive new tariffs threatened by the U.S., analysts said.

The tariffs will “greatly impact Chinese TV exports to the U.S.,” as TCL exports over 30% of its total TV shipments to the market and Hisense exports 6%, according to data provided by Sigmaintell Consulting, which researches chip and display markets.
