India not to impose anti-dumping duty on PSF imports
The Directorate General of Anti-dumping and Allied Duties (DGAD), under the commerce ministry, Government of India, has concluded that imposition of anti-dumping is not warranted on imports of polyester staple fibre (PSF) from China, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand. The period of investigation (POI) was 18 months from April 1, 2015 to September 30, 2016.

The investigation was initiated following an application filed by Alok Industry Limited, Indo Rama Synthetics (India) Limited and The Bombay Dyeing & Mfg. Co. Ltd. for imposition of anti-dumping duty on imports of non-dyed PSF ranging from 0.6 to 6 Deniers, excluding recycled PSF and specialty fibres namely, cationic dyeable, fire/flame retardant, low melt and bi-component fibres from China, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand.

Non-dyed PSF ranging from 0.6 to 6 Deniers are predominantly used to spin yarn of 100% PSF or in blends with natural, artificial and/or synthetic staple fibres for manufacture of textiles, sewing thread, other industrial textiles, nonwoven applications, etc.

“Though the import of product under consideration (PUC) has increased during POI as compared to base year, however, the quantum is not substantial as compared to total demand in India. The share of imports is only 7 per cent which is not significant enough to cause material injury to domestic industry,” DGAD said in its final findings released recently.

“The PUC has been exported to India from all the subject countries at dumped prices as compared to its normal value in the respective subject countries. However, the same are not solely responsible for causing material injury to the domestic industry as reflected by the analysis of various economic parameters,” the DGAD notification said.

The investigation concluded that “there is insufficient evidence to conclusively establish that dumping has caused material injury to the domestic industry. It is evident by the positive growth in domestic industry’s production capacity, production, sale volume, market share etc.” (RKS)
