Imports of high tenacity polyester yarn face probe

Recently, the European Commission launched anti-dumping investigation into imports of high tenacity polyester yarn, manufactured in China and other countries. This is the first trade remedy investigation on Chinese textiles since the end of 2008, when the China-EU textile agreement expired.

40 Chinese mainland enterprises are involved in the case, which involves more than US $100 million. In accordance with EU law, investigation procedures will last for 15 months since September 8, 2009 onwards. European Commission generally provides a preliminary ruling within 9 months after the establishment of the file.

The complaint was raised by the European Association of Man-made Fibers on behalf of three European companies. These three companies account for more than 60 percent share of EU total production of high tenacity polyester yarn.

The association has alleged that, export volume of Chinese made high tenacity polyester yarn to Europe increased from 2800 tons in 2004 to 51,400 tons in 2008, which also helped China increase its market share in European market promoted from 1.2 percent to 22.4 percent in 2008.

As early as February 2004, the European Union had filed anti-dumping accusations on high strength polyester fiber yarn made in Taiwan. Taiwan's exports of high-strength polyester yarn to the EU were only 2250 tons in 2001, but reached 5200 tons in 2002, and up to 7240 tons in the first 11 months of 2003.

The overall export value of high tenacity polyester yarn from China to the European Union touched about US $1.23 billion in 2008, an increase of 33.15 percent year on year.
