Review: In recent years, U.S. imports from China increased year by year the number of wooden flooring, the RMB exchange rate and other factors make China's wood flooring business exporters obtain a price advantage, but the U.S. flooring company that China exports to the United States multi-layer solid wood flooring price is too low, contrary to fair competition, October 21, 2010, the United States Department of Commerce and Industry to the U.S. International Trade Commission made a request to the origin of China's multi-layer wood flooring products "double reverse"bamboo kitchen investigation, and clearly the RMB exchange rate subsidies.
November 12, U.S. Department of Commerce anti-dumping, countervailing investigation to make decisions; December 3, United States International Trade Commission initially ruled that Chinese exports to the U.S. multi-layer wood flooring damage to U.S. industry. U.S. Department of Commerce anti-dumping, countervailing investigation into the substantive stage.
In February,bamboo flooring the U.S. Commerce Department identified three countervailing and antidumping mandatory respondent companies, and in March announced a preliminary countervailing: list which is listed in the survey where more than 100 enterprises are faced with 27.01% of the countervailing tax rate.
May 20, U.S. Department of Commerce published the preliminary determination of anti-dumping investigation; June 27 "due to calculation error" and amended the tax rate; August 25, U.S. Department of Commerce was held in China parquet "double reverse "business hearings,bamboo furniture alternative country and alternative data become the focus of debate between the original defendant.
October 13 morning, according to Voice of China "News" reports, the U.S. announced a multi-layer wood flooring produced in China set the final tax rate increase of 58.84% and 26.73% anti-dumping duties countervailing duties.
Followed the demonstration effect, or a variety of concerns about profiling?
The United States is China's wood flooring one of the major exporting countries, the U.S. market, the export of products not limited to multi-layer solid wood flooring, the incident involving multi-layer wood flooring, we have to guard against is that the U.S. will be the future dual investigations range from extended to cork flooring, bamboo flooring and other flooring category?
In addition, we found that, prior to Argentina, Canada and other countries have launched a Chinese wood flooring business for more than anti-dumping investigations, but nothing came of the end result is, nothing, if the United States, forming a new case will not related industries in other countries would be legal to form a "demonstration effect"?
From the initial forecast, "242.2 percent punitive tariffs" to disclose the pre-determined "up to 83% of anti-dumping duties and subsidies for up to 27% of the tax", and now the dust has settled, "58.84% anti-dumping duty and countervailing duty 26.73% "Although anti-dumping tax rates have come down, but for the flooring industry, in itself, the case of narrow profit margins, coupled with the harsh standard tax rate, some companies will not be forced to abandon the U.S. market?
Similarly, according to market, China's wood flooring exporter mainly in Europe, once part of the company to abandon the U.S. market from foreign to domestic sales, competition is bound to increase domestic wood floor, will inevitably revert to a term "low competition ", we found that low-price competition there is also domestic flooring industry, if this low-cost competition in 2012 is likely to be winter flooring industry.
"Dual" whether the scope of the proliferation of "dual" demonstration effect will the profiling, the end portion of foreign markets and domestic market competition intensifies, closely affecting the development of industry export lifeline.
Exports go before the floor desperation is king?
A flooring company official said, the new dual tax rate levied, then the operation will be difficult U.S. market, take the international route of the brands have to rethink the strategy of internationalization, but also to enhance the European market must be more consolidation in the Based on this market to develop new markets such as Asia and Africa.
