Chinese Glass Imports Face Anti-Dumping Duties

Nov 21, 2019

(WB) - The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) has found "a reasonable indication" that Chinese glass manufacturers have illegally dumped glass containers in the U.S. market, according to a notice published in the Federal Register Monday. This has prompted the Department of Commerce to proceed with a further investigation into the matter to determine whether anti-dumping duties will be levied and how high they will be.

A petition filed by the American Glass Packaging Coalition on Sept. 25 initiated the investigation. The coalition alleged that the U.S. glass industry has been injured by imports of government-subsidized glass from China priced at less than fair value. The value of Chinese glass container imports was estimated at $371 million for 2018, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce.
