Tianjin Pipe Group's production in Vietnam is put into operation
China’s Tianjin Pipe Group has operated its production in Vietnam. The first shipment of API pipes to the US was around 17,000 tons, more than the monthly export of Taiwan’s API pipes. Its API pipe monthly output is 20,000 tons.
In fact, China’s Huludao City Steel Pipe Industrial CO., Ltd, has built a pipe plant in Philippines, which has been put into operation last year, in order to avoid high penalty duties from the US government.
It’s known that Taiwanese pipe producers are planning to raise API pipe export to US in the next 2~3 years. Market players worried about that the significantly rise in API pipe exports will draw the US government’s attention, and Taiwanese suppliers probably shall encounter the anti-dumping duty in the near future.
