BMI View:
Iran's improving relationship with the West should provide a platform for the expansion of the country's metals sector as it strives to meet ambitious production forecasts. We expect the lifting of sanctions to facilitate increased production of steel, aluminium and other industrial metals, however, we note that the country continues to face a number of challenges, namely a weak infrastructure framework and the continued expansion of foreign export sectors.

Currently the largest producer in Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and among the 15 largest producers in the world, Iran's steel industry is set to continue expanding at a steady pace over the next few years. as Tehran targets near self-sufficiency in terms of it consumption of steel and other industrial metals. The Comprehensive Steel Plan, announced in 2013, plans to raise Iran's steelmaking capacity from 20 million tonnes per annum (mntpa) in 2012 to 55mntpa by 2025. On current evidence, the country is steadily working towards this goal with total crude output estimated to have risen by 5.9% year-on-year (y-o-y) in 2014 to 16.3mn tonnes (mnt) before accelerating to around 15% y-o-y during the first two months of 2015. Tehran is also aiming to triple the country's aluminium smelter capacity to 1.5mntpa.
