LONDON (ICIS)--Caprolactam (capro) exports from the EU rose by 14% year on year, according to data from statistics agency Eurostat on Thursday.

The increase in exports was attributed at the time to production problems at new Asian plants fuelling exports to the region.

There was a similar year-on-year increase in September exports.
