Data from US Census Bureau illustrated that in 2017, USA imported 1,141,576,422 US dollar fasteners from China, up 13.57% versus 2016 (1,005,133,580 US dollar) which underlines an increase in the demand of the USA for Chinese fasteners. However, US President Donald Trump announced that US would levy high anti-dumping tariffs on products from China and iron or steel nuts were included. Many Chinese companies are concerned about the situation of US fastener market. Reporter of interviewed some US distributors and companies regarding to the tariffs. Ms. Andrea Piotrowski, quotation specialist of Würth Industry North America said that there would be some influence yet slight. The policy is still on the way so they don't see any influence now. What's more, China will fight back against the anti-dumping measure, thus there will be a balance between China and USA. Chinese suppliers and purchasers can make negociations if the tariffs is settled. A few distributors expressed their anxiety about the question. As distributors, they purchased many kinds of fasteners. Once some of them are on the list of anti-dumping tariffs, they have to reduce the number of products from China or purchase from the other countries.
