Pencil exports are frequently subject to anti-dumping, and the pen industry highlights three major problems

Since 2000, my country’s pencil export volume has always occupied a relatively high share in the international market, and it is the world’s largest pencil production and export. According to statistics, the world’s total output of pencils in 2005 was about 15 billion, while China alone The production of 11 billion pieces, and of which more than 7 billion pieces are for export.

According to statistics, the world's total pencil output in 2005 was about 15 billion China’s output alone is 11 billion, and more than 7 billion of them are for export. It is precisely because of this that since 2000, my country has encountered foreign anti-dumping seven times in a row. Among them, the United States has always been my country's largest export market for pencils. On July 6 this year, the US Department of Commerce imposed anti-dumping duties on boxed pencils in China for the third time after 1994 and 2000. The anti-dumping duties were as high as 114.9%. However, before the final decision, my pencil did not have a major impact on beauty. In recent years, my country’s pencil production has accelerated technological innovation and product quality has continued to improve. However, the increase in export volume has been accompanied by a decline in prices. For this reason, the country has included pencils in the 'Pre-approved Product Catalogue' since May 2002, and the decline in the export price of pencils has not been curbed. In 1999, the average export price of pencils in Guangdong Province was US$1,639/ton. In 2002, it dropped to US$1338.3/ton. From January to July this year, it dropped to US$875.8/ton. my country's pencil exports are frequently subject to anti-dumping, and the industry has highlighted several major problems: 1. Low-priced exports can easily lead to anti-dumping restrictions. The country’s original intention to include pencils in the 'Pre-approved Product Catalogue' was to curb the increase in the export volume of pencils and to avoid restrictions on the export of pencils from other countries. However, after May 2002, the trend of low-priced pencil exports in my country has not been obvious. As a result, it has encountered anti-dumping restrictions imposed by five countries including Brazil, Turkey, Mexico, the European Union and the United States. 2. Anti-dumping and pre-approval signatures have not attracted the attention of enterprises. According to the company's report, due to the high selling price of pencils in the US market, the company has a larger profit margin. Even if the tariff is imposed at the 114.9% tax rate, the pencils sold by Chinese companies in the United States still have a lot of room for maneuver. In addition, the United States’ anti-dumping of Chinese pencils and the defense of Chinese companies have almost become an annual routine. From 1998 to 2006, Chinese pencil companies won 3 lawsuits and lost 2 lawsuits. Companies have become accustomed to this. I am worried that the high tax rate will damage the interests of the country and enterprises, and eventually lose the entire US market. 3. The waste of forest resources and graphite resources is serious. At present, wooden pencils are the main products of my country's pencil companies, and the basswood needed for their production is a precious forest resource in my country. As the world's largest exporter of pencils, China consumes more than 200,000 cubic meters of high-quality forged wood each year. In addition, the actual utilization rate of a wooden pencil is only 2/3, and 1/3 of the refill made of graphite will be wasted. As the current domestic pencil market is close to saturation, opening up new markets will be the way for companies to survive. In order to avoid trade risks, the author hereby suggests: pen manufacturers should actively change the traditional concept of small profits but quick turnover, while pursuing product sales. , Pay more attention to the balance between export prices and export quantities, and focus on product quality and brand image; secondly, production must be strictly in accordance with national industry standards, while reasonable control of production costs, industry supervision and management should be strengthened, and corporate quality should be improved. system.
