Iran's computer hardware industry in recent years has been an industry of "black and grey market" imports, Masound Riazat, the head of the Iran ISP Association admitted. Riazat added that the official import of computer parts should increase in the coming years as sanctions against the country fall away after the deal between Iran and world powers in Lausanne, ISNA quoted him as saying.  

"The good point is that with legal imports, the hardware equipment will be under direct supervision of an official company with genuine warranties and good after-sale services," the official said.

The domestic information technology market has not been threatened directly by sanctions; however, it has had to face a plethora of issues regarding importing and paying for abroad.

When sanctions are removed, western manufacturers can have the opportunity to enter the IT equipment and services industries, Riazat added.
