How to save China's coating industry in the face o

  • Detail

It is understood that since the U.S. government announced to take special safeguard measures for China's tire products exported to the United States, a new round of Sino US trade friction has been triggered. At the same time, Argentina also wants to follow the example of the United States and conduct anti-dumping investigations on some Chinese products. The Chinese government also quickly resorted to anti-dumping actions and initiated anti-dumping and countervailing investigation procedures against some imported automobile products and broiler products originating in the United States. Foreign trade frictions are not limited to this. In recent months, a series of anti-dumping trade wars have pushed the development of China's chemical enterprises, especially the coating raw material industry, to the top of the sealing wave

first of all, Argentina made anti-dumping measures against pigments and their products originating in China. India has also issued anti-dumping measures against China's titanium dioxide and polyether polyols. The Chinese Ministry of Commerce has also implemented final anti-dumping measures against toluene diisocyanate (TDI) imported from Japan, South Korea and the United States. It is not difficult for us to find that many important coating raw materials have been involved in this trade war

anti-dumping refers to the low control measures taken against the dumping of foreign goods in the domestic market. Generally, in addition to the general import duty, the dumping of foreign goods is subject to additional tax, so that they can not be sold cheaply. Such additional tax is called "anti-dumping duty". Although the general agreement on Tariffs and trade has made clear provisions on the issue of anti-dumping, in fact, each country has its own way and still takes anti-dumping as one of the main means of trade war. First of all, it should be pointed out that since the outbreak of the global financial crisis one year ago, during the whole process of the crisis and at the stage after the crisis, national policies on trade have particularity, which has become the most important factor determining the quantitative trend of anti-dumping. With the gradual expansion of the crisis, the number of anti-dumping investigations and measures has increased significantly. Since 1995, China has suffered the largest number of anti-dumping investigations in the world. Among the countries that initiated anti-dumping investigations, India ranked first, and most of them targeted China. Followed by the United States, the European Union, Argentina, South Africa and Australia

since the reform and opening up, especially with the continuous economic recovery and development in recent years, China's coating industry has developed rapidly, becoming the second largest coating production country in the world, and also driving the prosperity and development of the raw material market. The main competitiveness of China's coating raw materials and products lies in the price. Export raw materials are increasingly entering the world market with their low cost, and their market share in the world coating raw materials is gradually expanding. However, it is difficult to get rid of the growth of China's plastic machinery industry, which has ushered in a golden period of Kemen growth and rapid growth. Therefore, the treatment of waste plastic particles will become a hot anti-dumping entanglement for future development

in China's foreign anti-dumping cases, the original intention of chemical product Xinda to focus on promoting biological resources and bio based composites is not only to occupy the highland of new material innovation, accounting for the highest proportion, ranking second. The dumped products include polyester film, acrylate, dichloromethane, toluene diisocyanate, catechol and other chemical products. To some extent, this is not only a problem faced by Chinese coating raw material enterprises, but also a thorny problem faced by many developing countries. In addition, the Chinese government has issued a warning against the "overcapacity" faced by China. Many of our raw material coating enterprises are also facing many problems of structural adjustment. The management of a large number of new foreign trade enterprises is not perfect, which is easy to cause anti-dumping cases

nowadays, anti-dumping cases are starting to dispute again when the world is gradually coming out of the economic recession. Whether Sino US economic and trade disputes will expand into a more comprehensive bilateral trade war, and whether other countries will follow the actions of the United States and take trade protection measures against China, thus impacting the development progress and investment environment of China's coating industry and the upstream raw material market, are the focus of much attention. From the perspective of long-term development strategy, it is imperative and urgent for China to accelerate the transformation and upgrading of the coating industry related industrial chain
