China's CPL imports unaffected by anti-dumping duty
Mar '12
The imposition of anti-dumping duty on imports of caprolactam (CPL) originating from the US and the EU has failed to substantially reduce Chinese CPL imports.

In January 2012, China imported 64,900 tons of CPL, which is an increase of 11,000 tons over CPL imported in January 2011. However, the imports declined by 4,300 tons on a month-on-month basis.

In April 2010, China's Ministry of Commerce initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of CPL from the US and the EU. Subsequently, the investigation confirmed the existence of dumping in January 2011 and said that China's CPL industry had suffered damage due to dumping.

Finally, China imposed 2.2 to 25.5 percent anti-dumping duties on the imports of CPL form the US and the EU for a period of five years beginning October 22, 2011.

However, the figures of China's CPL imports in January 2012 show that the levy of anti-dumping duty has not had any major affect, as the imports have risen on a year-on-year basis.

On the other hand, China's imports of CPL from Russia and Japan have steadily grown after lifting duty on imports from these countries. From June 2003 to June 2008, China levied 5 to 28 percent anti-dumping duties on import of CPL from Russia, Japan, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.

In 2009, China imported 116,000 tons and 36,000 tons of CPL from Russia and Japan, accounting for 19.21 percent and 10.36 percent of China's total imports, respectively.

In 2010, China's CPL imports from Russia and Japan grew to 129,000 tons and 95,000 tons, which accounted for 19.46 percent and 15.04 percent of total imports, respectively.

From January to October 2011, China's CPL imports from Russia and Japan constituted 21.33 percent and 16.67 percent of China's total imports, respectively.

There has been a rapid growth in China's nylon 6 fibre industry in recent years. China's domestic production of CPL has also grown sharply from 302,000 tons in 2007 to 488,000 tons in 2010. However, it still falls short of meeting the domestic requirement and the country has to import CPL in large quantity. Thus, there is a need to further boost production of CPL in China.
