India to extend China tire duties for another three years

The Indian government has been advised to continue imposing anti-dumping duties on new tires from China for another three years, based on the findings of a recently conducted sunset review.

 

The duties, initially imposed in 2017, cover imports of new or unused pneumatic radial tires with or without tubes and/or flap of rubber (including tubeless tires) having nominal rim diameter code above 16 inches used for trucks and buses.

 

In its final findings announcement 21 Sept, India’s Directorate General of Trade Remedies (DGTR) said the review concluded that there was "positive evidence of likelihood of dumping and injury if the existing anti-dumping duties are allowed to cease."

 

As a result, the agency recommended the government to continue duties of $452.33/tonne on all imports of the subject goods for a further period of three years.

 

The sunset review was launched in May upon a petition by the local Automotive Tyre Manufacturer's Association (ATMA) on behalf of Apollo Tyres Ltd, JK Tyre Industries Ltd., and MRF Ltd.

 

Other domestic producers such as Birla Tyres, Bridgestone India, Continental India, Michelin India and Ceat Ltd did not participate in the review.

 

The production by the applicant companies constitutes more than 50% of the Indian production.
