Iran’s rise in exports

The export of home appliances from Iran rose 24 percent in the past Iranian calendar year 1401 (ended on March 20), the director-general of the Home Appliances Office of the Ministry of Industry, Mining, and Trade announced.

Speaking in a TV program, Mohsen Shokrollahi said cooling and heating appliances including evaporative coolers, heaters, and water heaters with a growth of 30 percent, accounted for the lion’s share of the export in the previous year.
“With 30 million dollars value of export, we had also a growth of 82 percent in the export of refrigerators and freezers in the past year”, he added.
The home appliance industry is one of the industries that faced significant production growth in the past year, so it can be said that Iranian manufacturers were able to take a significant share of the market in the production of refrigerators, freezers, washing machines, evaporative coolers, and TV sets, and even in small household appliances, the production status is outstanding.
The official announced that about 600 home appliance production units are active in the country.
Over the past few years, the Iranian government has been following a new strategy for supporting domestic production to neutralize the impacts of the U.S. sanctions while reducing the reliance of the economy on oil revenues.
The home appliances sector has been one of the pioneers in this regard and like many other areas, the production of home appliances has witnessed a significant rise in the past six years.
