US vendors Dell and HP are preparing to move as much as 30 per cent of their production out of China, according to the Nikkei Asian Review newspaper.
It follows President Trump's ongoing battle to pressure US companies to produce more goods on home soil, as part of his ‘America First' philosophy.
The trade war, which began last year, has resulted in a plethora of goods imported into the US from China being hit with tariffs of up to 25 per cent.
Economists say that they cover more than $250bn worth of Chinese goods.
Although China has retaliated with like-for like tariffs on the US, it's still a significant blow to the tech industry.
China remains the world's biggest producer of PCs and smartphones.
Meanwhile, HP and Dell, together hold 40 per cent market share of the global PC market.
Several major vendors have put plans into action as a result of the US-China trade war. Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins recent revealed on an earnings call that the vendor is reducing the amount of manufacturing it carries out in China.
Dell's server business declined for the first time in 10 quarters, it revealed in May. It highlighted tensions between the US and China as a factor while also citing a "softness" in its Chinese business.
Also in May, HP CEO Don Weisler warned investors that the US tariffs would have a damaging impact on the short-term future of the industry.
It follows Google's announcement, last month, that it will shift most of its production of motherboards for US orders from China to Taiwan to avert the 25 per cent tariff.
Apple, Lenovo, Acer, Amazon, Sony and Nintendo are also reportedly looking at moving parts of their production out of China, according to sources who have spoke to the Nikkei Asian Review.
