US-China trade tensions: what are the implications for commodities?

Report summary

On 15 June, the US administration announced it would impose 25% tariffs on about US$50 billion of Chinese goods. China immediately retaliated with tariffs of the same scale and amount – including US energy products as one of its targets. The US has since responded with the threat of another US$200 billion round of import taxes, escalating the situation further. In this Insight, we assess the likely impact – if implemented – of these tariffs on crude oil, LNG, propane, petrochemicals, power and coal.
