Nearly 62m tons of cement produced in 11 months

Iran produced 61.7 million tons of cement during March 21, 2014-February 19, 2015, said the secretary of Iran's Cement Producers Association.

Abdolreza Sheikhan said the production of clinker during this period amounted to 64.13 million tons.

He added that in the 11-month period, 49.12 million tons of cement were sold in the domestic market.

The association's secretary further noted that during January 21-February 19, 2015, cement and clinker production amounted to 4.79 million tons and 2.85 million tons respectively.

Also, in the same period, 4.86 million tons of cement were marketed domestically.

The export of cement and clinker in the same time-span amounted to 937,599 tons and 650,234 tons respectively.

Iran ranks first in cement production and exports in the Middle East. In view of its high quality, Iranian cement has a good market among neighboring countries.

Availability of raw materials, skilled workforce, indigenized technologies, high quality and low price are among the advantages of Iran's cement industry.

Currently, Iran produces 27 types of cement. Those involved in this industry believe that to expand export markets, Iran should facilitate trade, establish a preferential tariff system and activate export organizations.
