China's antidumping investigations against cellulose pulp

China's antidumping investigations against cellulose pulp

In February 2013, the Chinese government announced that it would be conducting an antidumping duty investigation of dissolving pulp producers in Canada, the United States and Brazil. This article examines the structure of the dissolving pulp market, the factors that have negatively affected China's domestic producers and the likely effect of a duty on China's domestic price. We conclude that the imports from the countries being investigated are not the root cause of the problems faced by China's domestic producers, that any duty imposed can at best provide only short-term relief to the domestic producers and that any duty imposed may have significant negative impacts for Chinese industries that consume dissolving pulp.
