Iran’s building and construction industry meets 100% of its requirements for raw materials from the local market, says Jafar Sarqeini, the caretaker of the Ministry of Industries, Mining and Trade. 
“Iran's steel, cement and tile and ceramic industries even produce more than twice the country’s domestic demand. Of the $10 billion worth of the mining sector’s exports in the last [Iranian] year [March 2019-20], exports of construction materials accounted for $7 billion. Iran is one of the major steel exporters in the region and one of the main cement exporters in the world.”
