LONDON (ICIS)--EU exports of bisphenol A (BPA) rose steeply between June 2014 and June 2013, according to data from Eurostat on Monday.

The rise in exports was against a background of some production issues in the US, with European producers and distributors shipping product to address the regional shortness.

EU imports were relatively unchanged down only 10%. A tariff on imports was reintroduced on 1 July which is widely expected to impact July import numbers.
