U S Polyester Fiberfill Producers File Petition

The domestic producers of polyester staple for fiberfill end-uses including DuPont, KoSa, Nan Ya International Polymers and Wellman, recently filed an anti-dumping petition on imports of fiberfill from South Korea and Taiwan with the U.S. Department of Commerce and the U.S. International International Trade Commission.The petition alleges that the U.S. polyester staple producers are being materially injured and are threatened with continued material injury by reason of imports that are being dumped or sold in the United States at less-than-fair value.It seeks imposition of substantial anti-dumping duties on the exporting countries, to offset the difference between their average export prices for sales of the product and their average prices for contemporaneous home market sales.According to Wellman, between 1996 and 1998, U.S. apparent domestic fiberfill consumption grew 41 percent. For the same period, the volume of subject imports originating from South Korea and Taiwan grew by more than 136 percent, while U.S. producer shipments grew a mere 3 percent.The combined South Korean and Taiwanese share of the U.S. market increased nearly 17 percentage points on an absolute basis, while U.S. producers saw their share of the domestic market drop nearly 18 percent.
