Leather industry asks for restrictions on Chinese footwear imports

Published
Jun 24, 2020

Indian leather manufacturers and traders have asked the government to impose an anti-dumping duty on Chinese footwear to decrease the amount of cheap imports and make Indian businesses more competitive.

The Indian leather industry is having trouble competing with cheaper Chinese imports - Alto Nivel


As the Indian leather footwear industry attempts to restart business and recover from the pan-India lockdown, businesses are asking the government to implement measures to boost the domestic industry, which is struggling to compete with cheaper Chinese imports, ET Bureau reported.
 
“Even though the import duty on footwear was increased to 35% in 2019, the flow of Chinese footwear has not come down a bit,” the Council of Leather Exports’ regional chairman, Ramesh Juneja, told the Economic Times. “The only way this can be controlled is to impose anti-dumping duty. We have already written to the government on this.”

The leather industry has requested that import duty be raised on chemicals used in the leather treatment process. Leather businesses have asked for chemicals imported from China including basic chrome sulphate and sodium sulphide to have their import duty raised from the current rate of 8.2% to 35%. 
 
A number of Indian factories that worked manufacturing the chemicals used to treat leather have closed down as they were unable to compete with Chinese imports, according to Juneja. China also manufactures a far greater volume of footwear than India and Chinese footwear exports to India have risen in recent years as India’s annual footwear consumption has increased. 
 
Numerous Indian industries have asked for a boycott of Chinese goods in order to boost Indian manufacturing in the wake of lockdown and following border tensions between India and China. The Confederation of All India Traders has also been vocal about boycotting Chinese products, claiming that Chinese imports are costing Indian workers their jobs.
