LONDON (ICIS)--Toluene exports out of the EU saw a modest year on year increase in September 2013, data from European statistics agency Eurostat showed on Monday.

Imports into the region were also up from the same period last year, but the difference in volumes involved was negligible at less than 500 tonnes.

The European market has primarily been export driven so far in 2013, with the US market acting as the key driver of global price direction.
