China Anti-Dumping Measures

China’s Ministry of Commerce will impose anti-dumping measures on imported styrene monomer by forcing importers to pay a deposit upon making their purchase. China’s styrene monomer industry has been “substantially” damaged by the dumping of styrene monomer, mainly from Korea, Taiwan and the US. Now, imports of the product coming from those three countries will be forced to pay deposits with Chinese customs based on dumping margins of between 5% and 10.7%.
