Patterns of Anti-dumping Use: Developed vs Developing Countries

Show Summary Details


This chapter explores the trends and time patterns of anti-dumping use in developed and developing economies for a period of over twenty-four years from 1980 to June 2004. An analysis of anti-dumping activity by sector both globally and within each initiating and targeted country group is also presented. It shows that the surge in anti-dumping cases was indeed fuelled by the developing countries in the late 1990s, but the use of anti-dumping mechanism was still not widespread among these countries. The effect of any anti-dumping initiation initiated against a developing country is likely to be much larger on its economy than that of an investigation initiated against a developed country. The anti-dumping duties against developing countries are indeed are of longer duration. Furthermore, it suggests that low- and middle-income developing countries were targeted mainly by Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries while they themselves were targeting other developing countries.
