Source: U.S. Census Bureau, accessed through IHS Markit’s Global Trade Atlas (Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheading 8424.30.9000). Imports of gas powered pressure washers enter under an HTSUS subheading that may cover subject and non-subject merchandise. Therefore, publicly available import data may not accurately reflect actual imports of the gas powered pressure washers covered by the scope of the investigations. Volume data for 2019 are not available, as the volume of imports entered under HTSUS subheading 8424.30.9000 was not reported in official import statistics prior to 2020.
