The article reports on the impact of China's antidumping investigation into acetone imports from Asia on the supply of the chemical in the region. The probe could help to reduce oversupply in the region's largest spot market and boost domestic prices if duties are levied. China's Ministry of Commerce launched an antidumping probe into acetone imports from Japan, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan after receiving applications filed by domestic producers. The effect of the probe on acetone prices is also reported.
