Cryorig's still active, but the US-China trade war is hurting it

In recent weeks there has been a lot of rumours regarding the CPU cooler manufacturer Cryorig, with many claiming that the company has gone under. This is not true, but as heatsink stocks have quickly disappeared from US store shelves, it is easy to see why such speculation can run wild.

So why has Cryorig's US presence vanished? The simple answer is import tariffs and the US-China trade war. Previously, Cryorig has sold its products through Amazon and Newegg, but now cripplingly high tariffs have temporarily forced Cryorig out of the US market. 

Outside of the US, Cryorig is selling products as normal, with UK retailers like Overclockers UK offering an ample selection of their products. For Cryorig, business in European and Asian markets are operating as normal, but for the time being, Cryorig faces challenges in the US. 

Cryorig has confirmed that they plan to work with Outlet PC to bring their product back into the US market, with the company remaining hopeful that the US and China will be able to strike a deal and decrease import tariffs. The US is a big market for PC gamers, making the US trade war a big deal for Cryorig. Sometime this month, Cryorig hopes to finalise a deal with Outlet PC, making them their US distributor. This deal will place Outlet PC in charge of aftersales support and returns.

Cryorig has confirmed that they have no plans to leave the US market, but if the US/China trade ware escalates, it could spell an end to the company's US presence.
