 You might have heard about the anti-dumping policy being imposed on China by the European Union. Yesterday I read an articles discussing that less than 10 percent of tile exports are from EU. So why anti-dumping?

The European Union argued in it's defense that tile producers who are in market were quite affected by the Chines import at low prices.

In Return Mr. Fan Ruixin, Chief Engineer of the China Ceramic Industrial Association said that Chinese ceramic tiles account only 8 percent of the European market, and the price are low because of low labor and production costs.

It has been further stated that EU is planning to increase more import duties on Chinese ceramic tiles and it is expected to reach 73 percent from 5 percent and this decision may affect exports of some 275 million Euros worth of tiles.

According to Mr. Fan, the export volume of Chinese tiles is not large enough to make an impact on EU producers.

According to statistics, the average price of Chinese ceramic tiles in the EU market is around $5 (3.6 Euros) per square meter, while that of Italian and Spanish tiles is around $13 per sq meter. This means that many customers will choose Chinese tiles because of the prices.

Though the anti-dumping duties did affected the importers in EU but it had not affected the Chinese industry quite much.

According to Mr. WU, this is a lose-lose situation as European importers will lose important business opportunities because not all customers can afford Italian tiles.

Now it is all up to to EU to either remove such duties or find some potential strategy which should be beneficial to both importers and exporters in EU.
