Tariff Threat Drains Chinese Keg Exports, Others Fill The Gap

China 1758 Materials - Metals/Mining 482 Tariffs 1169 U.S. 3297

The U.S. Commerce Department has found that Chinese exports of steel beer kegs have been subject to subsidies at a rate of up to 144.8%. The products covered in the case are already also subject to section 301 duties of 10%. The investigation, brought at the behest of American Keg, appears to have already deterred imports. U.S. imports of all steel barrels from China are down 33.0% year over year in the first quarter of 2019. Yet, total U.S. imports are only down 3.7% over the same period, suggesting other suppliers are stepping in the fill the gap.
