With more than half a century experience, Iran’s steel industry is leader in the Middle East among its rivals in terms of steel production and exports, the Persian-language news outlets reported.

It is expected that Iran’s steel industry will promote its level from 10th to 7th in global arena by 2025.

According to the latest data of country’s Comprehensive Steel Plan, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Qatar are major steel producers in West Asia.

Statistics showed that the Islamic Republic of Iran produced about 25 million tons of steel in 2018, accounting for over 69 percent share of steel production in the region.

Iran, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, in addition to being the largest producers of steel in West Asia, have also the highest steel consumption volume.

The aforementioned three countries have accounted for over 70 percent share of steel consumption in the region.
