Iran’s auto parts import bill for the first month of the current fiscal which started on March 21 has come in with the total value of the goods standing at $192 million.
According to statistics released by Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration, in terms of value, auto parts have a 7.6% share of the goods entering Iran through legal channels, topping Iran’s import bill.

The published data indicate a 189% year-on-year growth in auto parts imports.
Furthermore, the shipments are categorized into three groups depending on the share of locally manufactured parts in the final product: vehicles with under 30% localization, 30-50% and over 50%.
