The Event



Iran has a population of 80 million (of whom 60% are estimated to be under 30) and is the second largest economy in the Middle East (MENA) after Saudi Arabia, with an estimated Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2015 of US$ 393.7 billion. Iran ranks second in the world for natural gas reserves and fourth for crude oil reserves. The rate of increase of the Consumer Price Index fell to 12.6% per annum in January 2016 from a peak of 45.1% in October 2012 and infl ation has declined from 40% under the former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to around 8% recently. According to the World Bank Group, thanks to the lifting of sanctions and a more business-oriented environment, real GDP growth is projected to reach 4.6% in 2017.

Glass making in Iran can trace its origins back 3,500 years. Today the glass sector is an integral part of the country’s industrial landscape and can count on huge reserves of silica, cheap electricity, professional skills and low labor costs. The main glass and crystal manufacturing plants are located in Tehran and Tabriz areas, including Crystal Iran, Hamadan Glass, Kaveh Industrial Group, Mofid Pharmaceutical Glass, Norizateh, Razi Glass Group, Sahand Industrial Group and Shoga Glass, etc... According to the Iranian Glass and Crystal Producers Association, the country could become a leader in global glass manufacturing. However, along with investments from abroad the country needs to update its plants and technology in order to complete the production chain. Following the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (the international agreement on Iran’s nuclear program, known commonly as the Iran deal) and the cancellation of international economic sanctions, foreign investments are entering the country and will increase the opening of new companies and the setting up of joint ventures. In order to establish itself on the world stage, Iran needs to start increasing domestic production both in container glass and tableware and in flat glass. On the one hand, a young and growing population coupled to a better economic outlook will lead to more end users for tableware, food&beverage and cosmetic containers; on the other, the flat glass market can benefit from the growth of the construction and automotive fields: just think that Iran is planning to produce 3 million vehicles over the next 10 years.
