what are the importance of raw materials?

Raw materials have a key role in the industry but in most of the times governments limit its export because they think there are no added value in the export of raw materials, this is true from one side but we should think that not every industry can be built in the country,  there are some barriers like ecological limits, human resource limits, lack of investor and etc.

Not always its possible to transform the raw materials to the final products, so here there is a challenge; eighter stop exporting raw materials which will lead to unemployment of mine workers, labor working at the factories for later process and all people involved in it or find another way.

here we notice what are the importance of raw materials? every manufactory depends on the raw materials that inputs in its cycle and turns it to the final product, here is the place that the value added is made, sometimes the raw materials are imported or most the times are purchased from inside the country.

Iran is the 5th country in the world with value of the minerals which is in it like: Oil, gas, coal, chromium, copper, iron ore, lead, manganese, zinc and sulfur.

Iran’s position in the region and the existence of neighboring countries such as Saudi Arabia and Turkey, which don’t have enough mineral reserves and need mineral resources due to the rate of economic growth and development, Iran can be considered a good source to supply their needs. Also, by allocating 18% of gas resources and 9% of oil resources to itself, Iran has been able to gain a good position among the mining countries of the world for providing energy, mining activities, especially in processing and metals, and due to the many resources it has, the price of energy is up to 50% of the global price.

Iran's Raw Materials Abundance

This situation has created conditions for large companies to carry out all operations related to mining in Iran at a suitable cost price and export to nearby markets in the region. Also, the presence of a suitable market for consumption in Iran and the countries of the region, specialized and educated manpower in the mining sector, access to open water and a reasonable price for energy, Iran is known as one of the most important countries for the investment of large mining companies.

Raw materials which Iran is not known to It in the world

Unfortunately, because of the sanctions Iran is not known for many of the raw materials, although there are many discovered mines in Iran, there are many other plants that are processing it and making another types of products which can be used as raw materials in different industries.

Here we are going to give you examples of the Iranian products which are not know.

  • Different types of lubricants for high tech industries such as aero industry and turbines
  • Different types of anti-corrosion coatings for petrochemicals plants and other plants which are dealing with corrosion by acids and bases.
  • Different types of paint additives.
  • Different types of fire-resistant coating for concrete and pipes.
  • Raw materials for purification process of different types of vegetable oils.
  • Fiberglass mat, fiberglass tissues, fiberglass chopped mat.
  • iodine

And so on….


Why Iran is not well known for its raw materials

Since long time ago, Iran was under brutal and unfair sanctions along with a big propaganda against it which made a false image in the world, while many Europeans were involved in different wars, Iranians developed different business routs from China, Africa and lately from Europe to Iran.

Because of geographical location of Iran and its climate, many Iranians chose business since long time ago, trading has been one of the major characteristics of Iranians culture.

There have been different routs and methods of doing business invented by Iranians, even at the routs of business, rehabilitation and rest centers were created to make it easier for merchants to do their job, they were called “karvansara”.

Many cities devoted their energy mainly for business because of their location, like Marand city, in east Azerbaijan of Iran.

Propaganda against Iran, false and fake news, imperialist powers always tried to push Iran away from the international trades but because of highly skilled businessmen, the business in Iran was not stopped and Iran could manage to develop with the same speed of the other countries and even faster than them.

For a better understanding we invite you to Iran to come and see by your own.

what is the importance of sorting raw materials?


what is the importance of sorting raw materials

Usually manufactories that purchase this products, they don’t have enough machinaries or human resources to sort the this materials and its more economical to them to buy it from sorted.

Sorting in raw materials can have different meaning, it can apply for the particle size, color, purity, density or any other physical or chemical characteristics that sorting can be done based on that.

The importance of sorting of raw materials is to reduce the final price of the raw materials and ensure the quality of it.


what organ system is responsible for import of raw materials?

In each country there are certain organs defined by the regulations which is responsible for the regulatory of the raw materials imported or exported, In Iran Ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade is responsible for the regulatory of this.
