Maybe. The test for antidumping is sales at "less than fair value." "Fair value" can be a tricky calculation, however, especially when dealing with goods from countries with non-market economies. Meanwhile, by the way, the foreign piano manufacturers could also be receiving countervailable subsidies from their government.

But U.S. antidumping and countervailing duty laws generally also require a showing that a domestic industry is being injured, or threatened with material injury, as a result of the dumping and/or subsidies. And usually the domestic industry has to step forward and file the petitions, often through an ad hoc industry group expressly created for this purpose.

Being owned by the Chinese gov't gives them distinct advantages:

No need to make a profit - need only to employ
Unlimited capital

Pearl River is no longer owned by the Chinese government, following an IPO in 2012.

That said, it is the biggest manufacturer of pianos in China*, so one would imagine the Chinese government would consider the company's interests to be aligned with its own.

Though, with most of its production (over 140,000 pianos a year!) sold domestically, the effect of US tariffs on the company may not be significant.


*and the world, I understand
