Comparison of Domestic Product and Subject Imports

In order to determine whether U.S.-produced CFS paper can generally be used in the same applications as imports from China, Indonesia, and Korea, producers and importers were asked whether the products can “always,” “frequently,” “sometimes,” or “never” be used interchangeably. The majority of U.S. producers that compared CFS paper from China, Indonesia, Korea, and nonsubject countries with the product from the United States reported that they are always comparable, as shown in table II-1. The majority of importers reported that U.S. product is always comparable with coated free sheet from the subject countries and that the products from each of the subject countries are always comparable with each other.

Respondent importers reported that CFS paper in sheet form is often used for small- volume, high-end applications, whereas web rolls are used in high-volume applications.21 Petitioner and respondent importers both reported that end users typically have either a printer for web rolls or a sheet-
