LONDON (ICIS)--EU caprolactam (capro) exports rose by 8% in November 2013 compared with the same month in 2012, data from statistics agency Eurostat showed on Tuesday.

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

This followed year-on-year increases in exports of above 10% in both October and September export values.
