US decides anti-dumping duty on Chinese xanthan gum

US decides anti-dumping duty on Chinese xanthan gum The United States International Trade Commission made a final ruling on the 20th that the Chinese xanthan gum imported from China has actually impaired or damaged US-related industries. The United States will impose anti-dumping duties on this product.

Four of the six members of the US International Trade Commission believe that xanthan gum imported from China has created a real buzz on the US industry, and two believe that it caused substantial damage. As the U.S. Department of Commerce had previously concluded that there was a dumping of Chinese xanthan gum exported to the United States, the International Trade Commission’s ruling on that day meant that the U.S. Department of Commerce would formally require customs to impose anti-dumping duties on such products.

According to the US Department of Commerce’s ruling in May this year, the United States will impose anti-dumping duties of 15.09% to 154.07% on Chinese-made xanthan gum.

Xanthan gum is a bio-rubber with functions such as thickening and emulsification, and is mainly used as a food additive in ice cream, dairy products, jelly, and other products. According to data from the US Department of Commerce, the value of xanthan gum imported from China in 2012 is expected to reach 82.4 million U.S. dollars.

The US International Trade Commission also unanimously concluded on the same day that the xanthan gum imported from Austria did not cause any real ** or damage to the U.S. industry and therefore would not impose anti-dumping duties on this product. Previously, the U.S. Department of Commerce had concluded that the Austrian xanthan gum producers and exporters had dumping behavior in the United States market with a dumping margin of 29.98%.

In accordance with U.S. law, both the Ministry of Commerce and the International Trade Commission need to make a definitive final award before the Ministry of Commerce decides the dumping or subsidy margin before imposing anti-dumping or countervailing duties. The International Trade Commission ruled whether the related products caused substantial damage to U.S. industry or *.

According to the US International Trade Commission, there are only two xanthan gum manufacturers in the United States. China, Austria, and France are the main sources of imports for xanthan gum in the United States.

The Chinese Ministry of Commerce has repeatedly stated that it hopes that the U.S. government will abide by its opposition to trade protectionism, jointly safeguard a free, open and fair international trade environment, and properly handle trade frictions in a more rational manner.
