FACTBOX-Chinese companies affected by the Sino-U.S. trade war

    Sept 12 (Reuters) - Since March, the United States has levied taxes on Chinese imports of aluminium and steel, and the world's two
largest economies have applied tariffs to $50 billion of each other's goods. 
New duties on $200 billion of Chinese imports will start to hit consumer products directly, including furniture, lighting products,
tyres, bicycles and car seats for babies.            
Below are some companies whose businesses have or will be affected by U.S. tariffs, based on their first-half earnings reports.
