Jindal Steel, Welspun Corp and Essar Steel, for the anti-dumping on imports of submerged arc welded (SAW) pipes from China, has filed a preliminary petition with the Directorate of Anti-Dumping & Allied Duties (DGAD).
The Chinese suppliers snatched tenders, volume of which would total to 135,000 tonnes from the Indian manufacturers. The Indian Pipe Manufacturers Association has already filed a petition against the Chinese suppliers.
"The domestic pipe industry is facing severe under-utilisation of capacity due to lack of orders from the domestic industry. India has a total of six million tonnes of pipe making capacity but the current capacity utilisation has fallen below 35 per cent and the companies are finding it difficult to stay afloat. With the trade measures against dumping of steel, Chinese companies are conveniently dumping pipes into the Indian market," Vinod Mehta, general secretary, Indian Pipe Manufacturers' Association, said.
India has imposed a five-year anti-dumping duty on import of hot rolled and cold rolled flat steel products recently which has been a major boost for the steel sector.
