LONDON (ICIS)--EU dimethyl terephthalate (DMT) imports and exports saw dramatic increases in percentage terms in November 2013 compared with the same month in 2012, according to data from statistics agency Eurostat on Tuesday.

Imports rose by 142% year on year, and exports by a much steeper 5,000%. Nevertheless, actual volumes imported and exported were marginal in tonnage terms, which served to magnify percentage changes.
