Anti-dumping Has A Huge Impact On China's Coating Material Industry

Aug 12, 2020

With the recovery of my country's economy, China's paint industry has developed rapidly and has become the world's second largest paint producer, thus driving the development of the paint raw material market. The competitiveness of Chinese paint raw materials is mainly reflected in prices. Exported raw materials are entering the international market more and more at low cost, and the market share of international coating raw materials has gradually expanded. Anti-dumping measures have followed, and it is difficult to get rid of the entanglement of anti-dumping. To some extent, this is not just a problem faced by Chinese paint raw materials companies, but a thorny problem faced by many developing countries. In addition, the Chinese government has issued warnings about the overcapacity problem faced by our country. Many paint raw materials companies are also facing many problems in structural adjustment. The imperfect management of a large number of new foreign trade companies can easily lead to anti-dumping cases. From the perspective of long-term development strategy, it is an inevitable way for China to accelerate the transformation and upgrading of the coatings industry chain.

The author understands that there were many anti-dumping cases of coating materials in 2012, and some anti-dumping cases need to be reviewed: Argentina made anti-dumping against Chinese pigments and their products, India issued anti-dumping against Chinese titanium dioxide, polyether polyols, etc. The Ministry also implemented final anti-dumping measures against imports of toluene diisocyanate originating in Japan, South Korea, and the United States. Brazil made a final anti-dumping ruling on polymerized MDI imported from China. China extended the anti-dumping investigation period against imported ethylene glycol monobutyl ether. The United States and the European Union The anti-dumping investigation period for imported ethylene glycol and diethylene glycol monobutyl ether was extended by 3 months, that is, the deadline for investigation is February 18, 2013. Anti-dumping investigations and anti-dumping measures implemented in various parts of the world have had a huge impact on the normal supply of coating raw materials around the world, which will not only waste resources, but also make it difficult to export coating raw materials for countries subject to anti-dumping measures. The domestic market has oversupply, product prices have fallen severely, and companies are in an abnormal state of production. At the same time, countries that implement anti-dumping have increased the price of imported raw materials, which has put huge pressure on production costs. Seriously affect the normal market order of the coating material industry, and make the global coating material industry in an unbalanced development process.

    Many coating materials are involved in anti-dumping. For the coatings industry, anti-dumping has a great influence. In the end, the company must pay for it, increasing the company's production costs. However, paint raw material companies are on the verge of meager profit or even loss under cost pressure. Weighing the pros and cons of anti-dumping investigations, companies that grow up under the protection of protectionism will not survive for a long time. It is hoped that while coating raw materials companies can improve product quality and brand, they can also adopt the principles of fairness and impartiality on the international stage. , Play an important role in fierce market competition.
