Apple Might Start Investing More Heavily in US Tech Amidst Decline in Globalism, New Report Reveals

Most major tech companies don’t have all that many manufacturing facilities in their home country. US tech corporations in particular do much of their manufacturing in places like China and Taiwan because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up allowing them to reduce costs without impacting the quality of their products. However, recent events that have shaken up the global paradigm might signal an end to such globalist practices, and Apple might be one of the first to change their business plans accordingly.

A new report from a manager at a major investment fund which is based on an analysis of various trends suggests that Apple might take Russia’s recent invasion of Ukraine as a sign that it should start investing in US tech instead of relying on foreign support. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that China is also a country that has a recidivist ideology that claims Taiwan as part of its ancestral homeland.

There is a strong chance that China could be emboldened by Russia’s attack and seek to launch a similar invasion of Taiwan. This would be a disastrous occurrence for Apple with all things having been considered and taken into account. It could upend their way of doing business and make it exceedingly difficult to maintain control over their supply chains. While Apple is one of the strongest and most durable companies in the world, an overreliance on countries that are far away from them with contentious geopolitical issues of their own is a weakness that they might want to stamp out whenever they can.

Apple makes both its A and M series chips in Taiwan, and it also relies on China for much of its supply chain management. A war between these countries could have catastrophic consequences for the tech juggernaut, and that’s why so many people are suggesting that they might start investing in US tech a lot more heavily in order to have all of their bases covered.
