The difficult part of pushing a design to market is building the thing. Once you have a factory, cloning a design and shipping a product is quite easy.
In fact, much of the industrial learning and knowledge comes from managing manufacturing processes.
This was always going to be the end game in the China manufacturing experiment. The USA closes its factories and exports the manufacturing process, but, holds on to "design" and "branding". China clones design and branding. The USA, unable to recreate the factories, becomes vassal to China.
It has happened at different rates for different industries: Giant ate Schwinn. Lenovo is eating IBM. Repeat 1000 times for 1000 corporations.
The only surprise here is that people are surprised.
In my corner of the industry (Aerospace) many government contracts require USA-made parts. Each year more and more subsystems become difficult to obtain from USA sources: Ethernet cards, bulkhead connectors, keyboards, etc.
