The Shanghai Stone Industry Association and other intermediaries that first heard of this incident immediately rushed to organize dozens of Chinese companies in Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Shanghai to jointly respond to US anti-dumping pressure.
The cause of Chinese diamond saw blade manufacturers being sued by US counterparts is that American companies believe that the increased import of diamond circular saw blades from China has caused substantial damage to US domestic industries. The United States quoted the countryâ€™s customs statistics as saying that the export of diamond saw blades from China and South Korea increased from 8.7 million in 2002 to 13.4 million in 2004, causing American companies to fail to enjoy the benefits of the construction industry. On the contrary, it has reduced the profit margin of American companies, resulting in the bankruptcy of one company, the market share of many companies has narrowed, and the US counterparts have been "covered in the embarrassing situation of steel, rising energy costs and falling product prices."
On May 3, 2005, the US International Trade Commission received a request from domestic producers for China's so-called "anti-dumping" because of the US Department of International Trade's complaint to the American Diamond Saw Blade Manufacturers Association. In doubt, he decided to issue a questionnaire, collect relevant industry support information, and proceed with the "damage" investigation. The questionnaire collection was completed before May 25. It is reported that the US International Trade Commission will hold the first hearing on "damage" in the near future and make a preliminary ruling on June 17.
Diamond circular saw blades have become the main products of China's export to the international market. Many domestic enterprises and a group of listed companies are ambitious. The production line under construction is planned to be put into production this year and next. If the United States implements "anti-dumping", it is undoubtedly a good thing for these companies.
According to Dr. Fan Lingen, Secretary General of the Shanghai Stone Industry Association, the global diamond saw blade production has been transferred to Asia on a large scale since 2000. The products produced by Chinese companies are mainly for the low-end market. According to US statistics, from 2003 to 2004, the number of diamond circular saw blades exported from China to the United States increased by more than 30%. In this regard, the litigation materials submitted by the US prosecution seems to be very reasonable, saying that our export to the United States is far below the normal cost, and the dumping margin is 298.39%. That is, if US Customs imposes a 298.39% tariff on Chinese products, it will not be Dumping. If the enterprises involved in the case or non-involved enterprises in China do not sue, the products exported to the United States in the future will be taxed at the highest rate after the ruling on the dumping case. For the wishful thinking of American counterparts, Dr. Fan Lingen resolutely refutes that the cost price calculation of Chinese products is based on the factors of production, such as working hours, raw material consumption, energy consumption, etc., multiplied by the unit price of the alternative country (in this case, India). The real production cost, coupled with the fixed conversion of management costs, profits, etc., as a developing country, China's labor and material cost advantages are obvious, there is no such thing as a "discounting margin of 28.39%" absurd statement. At present, diamond saw blades are becoming an emerging export growth point in China. Usually, investing in a set of high-grade diamond materials and saw blade production equipment requires tens of millions of dollars. Many domestic enterprises and a group of listed companies are ambitious and have been or are Preparation for the new production line, it is planned to start production this year and next. If the United States finally decides to implement anti-dumping measures on the product, it will kill the development of the newly-developed Chinese diamond tool industry to a certain extent, and it will be like a good start for those companies that are aiming at the export market.
