Anti-Dumping Investigation on China's Termination of Titanium Dioxide in China

On August 17, South Korean officials formally announced that they had "terminated this anti-dumping investigation." The Korean anti-dumping case for titanium dioxide officially ended. The Chinese side won the case in this case and established the justification for the export of titanium dioxide in China, laying the foundation for Chinaa€?s position in the international titanium dioxide market.

Fu Yijiang, deputy secretary-general of the China Titanium Dioxide Industry Association, said in an interview with the China Chemical News reporter that this response to victory has strengthened the confidence of Chinese titanium dioxide companies in exporting to South Korea. Currently coincides with the arrival of the domestic a€?Golden Septembera€? sales season, the favorable export will also help the domestic titanium dioxide market continue to heat up.

According to Liu Chao, deputy director of the Legal Affairs Department of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, more than ten years ago, Chinese titanium dioxide companies have established mutual trust and friendly relations with the local Korean downstream companies. The occasional suspension of production of Korean company COCMO Chemicals is due to market changes and poor management. As a result, it has nothing to do with the normal export of Chinese titanium dioxide enterprises; for the imported titanium dioxide enterprises in Korea, due to the inability of local similar products to meet demand, and the high cost-effectiveness of Chinese titanium dioxide, it is an important raw material for the Korean downstream industry, and the products involved The imposition of anti-dumping duties will seriously undermine the interests of the vast majority of the downstream industries in Korea. At the same time, it is extremely rare for anti-dumping investigations to be initiated on the basis of a€?blocking the establishment of industriesa€? in the history of WTO.

Fu Yijiang said that exports have always been an important factor in driving the rapid development of China's titanium dioxide industry. The titanium dioxide industry in China has begun to exert its efforts in the high-end product market. The dual advantages of quality and price have made the competitiveness of Chinese titanium dioxide in the international market significantly enhanced. At the same time, South Korea has always been one of the major destination countries for the export of titanium dioxide in China. The termination of this anti-dumping investigation will surely promote the further increase of exports to South Korea.

On December 8, 2015, Korea COCMO Chemical submitted an application for the investigation of anti-dumping rutile titanium dioxide. On December 29, 2015, the Korea Trade Commission decided to initiate an anti-dumping investigation against the rutile titanium dioxide. The product's customs code was 3206.11.0000, the dumping investigation period was from July 2014 to June 2015, and the damage investigation period was 2012. January to June 2015. The China Titanium Dioxide Industry Association immediately began to assist organizations in responding.

On March 28th this year, the Korea Trade Commission held a hearing on the anti-dumping case against titanium dioxide produced by South Korea against China, the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, the China Titanium Dioxide Industry Association, Sichuan Longxi Group, Henan Yililian Chemical Co., Ltd., Ningbo Xinfu Titanium Dioxide Co., Ltd., as well as Korean importers and Korean downstream industry representatives. The case responded to the lobbying delegation and exchanged opinions with the Korea Paint & Printing Association and other parties on case response and industry consultation. With the joint efforts of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, the China Titanium Dioxide Industry Association and the Chinese titanium dioxide company, the Korean anti-dumping case lasting more than eight months has officially come to an end.

The head of the import and export department of the domestic titanium dioxide leading company Henan Lili Chemical Co., Ltd., in an interview with the China Chemical News reporter, said that for enterprises, active responding enabled Yan Lilian to rapidly accumulate valuable experience in responding to international anti-dumping investigations. At the same time, it also produced a huge advertising effect in the Korean market and increased brand influence.
