LONDON (ICIS)--Exports of styrene acrylonitrile (SAN) from the EU27 to the rest of the world have seen substantial year-on-year increases in January and February 2013, data from statistics agency Eurostat showed on Thursday.

January saw large amounts of EU-produced product exported to Brazil, with Turkey importing the largest amount of SAN from the EU in February.

Imports of SAN into the EU27 in January and February 2013 have also risen year on year.

South Korea exported the largest amounts of SAN into the EU in 2013, aided by the Free Trade Agreement between the country and the EU, which has considerably reduced import duty on South Korean-produced products.
