India’s finance ministry has imposed anti-dumping duties of up to US$64.35 per cubic metre of plain MDF from Vietnam and Indonesia. The anti-dumping duty will be levied on plain MDF (also known as Custom-wood or Craft-wood in the domestic market) with a thickness of 6mm above and will be valid for a period of five years. The duties do not apply to laminated MDF boards.
The anti-dumping petition was jointly filed by Greenply Industries and Mangalam Timber Products. Rushil Decor Ltd, which accounts for 20% of India’s domestic MDF production, also supported the petition.
